Admissions Overview

Sir Thomas Rich’s is an academically selective, state-funded grammar school admitting 150 boys to Year 7 every September, with around 400 young men and women in our co-educational Sixth Form.

We don’t have a catchment area; pupils living anywhere in the county of Gloucestershire and beyond can apply to join us in Year 7 or Year 12, subject to meeting our admissions criteria. Entry to Year 7 is determined by the results of the Gloucestershire Grammar Schools Admissions Test, which prospective pupils take at the start of Year 6. Entry to Year 12 is dependent on GCSE grades achieved in Year 11, and the entry requirements for each subject are listed in our Sixth Form Prospectus. In year admissions are possible if pupils meet our academic standards and there are places available in the relevant year group.
