The Richmond upon Thames School

Excellence Through Endeavour


The school will use the over‐subscription criteria used for admission to Richmond upon Thames’ current non‐faith secondary schools.

Where there are more applications for admission than places available, the criteria used to allocate places are:

  • current and previously looked‐after children;
  • exceptional family,
  • social or medical need;
  • siblings; 
  • proximity of the child’s home to the school.



Waiting List

We have a waiting list for entry to Year 7 in September 2019.

How can I add my child’s name to your waiting list?

All requests to be added to our waiting list should be made through your child's home LA (and not the school directly).

I am already on the waiting list, how do I find out where I am?

Year 7 Appeals – September 2020

If you have been refused a place for your child at The Richmond upon Thames School you have the right to appeal.

This year the final date for registering an appeal is 20 April 2020.

The admission appeals process is administered by the Richmond Independent Appeals Service, this ensures that it is separate from and independent of the school and the admission authority.

Information about the appeals process can be found on the Richmond Independent Appeals Services’ website.
