Admissions and Appeals
Applications for entry into Year 7 September 2019
More details about RBG's coordinated admissions round for entry to Year 7 in September 2019, including instructions on how to apply, are available here.
Applications to the Greenwich Free School for students progressing from Year 6 to 7 are made through the Local Authority Common Application process. This simply means that you should list the Greenwich Free School as one of your preferences on your local authority form. If you are a resident of another borough, the same applies: just list the Greenwich Free School on your local authority form.
There is no supplementary form to fill out for the Greenwich Free School, and pupils do not need to sit any entrance exams or tests.
Once confirmed, dates for our Open Events for those pupils seeking to join us in September 2020 will be published on the RBG website and on our homepage.
For full details on the Admission arrangments to AGFS please see our Admissions Policy above.
