Places for the current academic year 2016/17 for Nursery to Year 2 may still be available, please contact our Admissions Office for details. 

Our admissions team are here to guide you through the application procedure and to make the admissions process as smooth as possible. For all admissions enquires please contact our Admissions Secretary on admissions@rgsgq.com or telephone +974 4036 0450. 

Please refer to our Admissions Policy document before submitting your Registration Form. We are an inclusive school, but operate a selective admissions policy, based upon the identification of pupils whose academic and other abilities appear to match the ethos and standards of the School. 

Our language of learning is English and all applicants will be expected to have the required English language skills to access the curriculum at their age appropriate level. 

Whilst the RGS Guildford in Qatar is considered an academic school, we also look for personal qualities which suggest a child has the potential to contribute sufficiently to the school community and benefit from the many opportunities that are offered at the Royal Grammar School, Guildford in Qatar.

The Admissions procedure is made up of the following stages:

  • Application

  • Assessment 

  • Acceptance and Registration

Application  

Once you have decided that The Royal Grammar School, Guildford in Qatar is the best choice for your child, the next step is to submit an application form to us.

Application forms can be collected from the School’s admissions office or can be downloaded by clicking the link above.

Please submit your completed application form with the following documents:

  1. a copy of your Qatari ID (for Qatari children and parents). We will require sight of the original, plus one copy;

  2. a copy of your passport (child and parents) showing the page with the photograph. We will require sight of the original, plus one copy;

  3. a copy of a valid residency permit (for all non-Qatari children and parents). We are happy to start the application process whilst the RPs are in process, but your child will not be able to start school at the RGS Guildford in Qatar without a valid RP number. This is the law in Qatar;

  4. a copy of your child’s birth certificate. We will require sight of the original, plus one copy;

  5. two recent passport sized photographs of your child;

  6. a health record document for children between the ages of three and six. We will require sight of the original, plus one copy;

  7. the latest school or Nursery report or Early Years Foundation certificate.  All school reports must be translated into English;

  8. a non-refundable  assessment  fee of QAR500.

By submitting the Application form and Assessment fee, you are not automatically guaranteed a place at the Royal Grammar School, Guildford in Qatar.

Assessments

It is the RGS group policy that all applicants are assessed and that all candidates have at least a basic working knowledge of the English language. A detailed Assessment Guide outlining the purpose and format of the assessments, as well as useful tips on how to prepare your child is available to download on our website at www.rgsgq.com 

The school aims to provide a happy, purposeful environment for our pupils and we try to demonstrate this on assessment days by putting candidates at ease and making it a pleasant and enjoyable time. 

Once you have submitted your Application Form, our Admissions Secretary will contact you with available group assessment dates and timings. 

The Head of Prep School may request to meet parents following the assessment stage to discuss the role they will be expected to take in supporting their child’s education. This is also an opportunity for parents to ask any questions about the school.

Acceptance and Registration

Following a formal offer, parents have seven days in which to confirm their acceptance of the place by returning a signed Admission Agreement, along with a non-refundable registration fee of QAR2500 and a refundable acceptance deposit of QAR 5000, which will be held in lieu of notice against the final term’s fees. 
Once the admissions process is complete, the Admissions Secretary will contact you to agree a start date and will send you a copy of our ‘Parent Handbook’. The Handbook should answer all of the questions that you may have regarding joining our school, including uniform, drop-off and pick-up times, lunch and snacks, our school day and school policies and rules.
