Years 7 & 8
The fact that so many parents send their children to prep schools until 13+ is an indication of their value and the difference they can make to your child's future.
At Rose Hill School we place particular value on the importance of our Years 7 & 8. As such we have a fee structure that enables more children to experience this opportunity.
In 2020, our Governors agreed Year 7 & 8 fees would be discounted by 50% until July 2025 (subject to terms & conditions). In addition we offer Awards to pupils in Years 7 & 8 who show promise in various subjects. In common with other Awards, this is merit based with the recipient earning the award on the basis of demonstrating potential in the following categories; Sports, Drama, Art, STEM, Citizenship & Music. The successful recipient of an Award will receive a further percentage discount on the school fees.
All subjects in Years 7 & 8 are led with specialist teaching staff and our class sizes are lower than that of a senior school. This can be important for all children regardless of academic ability. Rose Hill School is smaller than our senior equivalents and we make sure no child 'gets lost in a crowd'.
During the last two years at Rose Hill School pupils have the opportunity to take on roles of responsibility. Being the top year of a prep school at age 12 or 13 as opposed to being the youngest members of the senior school community encourages maturity and independence.
Academically, attending Rose Hill School to 13+ means that your child has access to excellent teachers and a broad, rich and exciting curriculum. Our facilities are fantastic, with enviable sporting amenities including our new indoor pool and large grounds including outdoor education and space for self-discovery.
