Do we need to tell our current school that we are applying to come to Reigate Grammar School Vietnam?

Yes. We will ask them for a reference or school report after receiving your application, so you should always tell them that you are applying.

Is there a separate application form for scholarships?

All pupils who take the entrance exam are automatically considered for academic scholarships. However, there are separate forms for Sport, Music or Headmaster’s scholarships.

What is the difference between a scholarship and an assisted place?

A scholarship is a fee reduction per annum offered following exceptional performance in the entrance exam (or audition/interview for Sport, Music or Headmaster’s scholarship). The value of the scholarship can be increased through means-testing.

Assisted Place are intended to enable gifted children to attend the school even if their parents cannot afford the full school fees. Assisted places are available to those who are successful in our entrance examination and interview, and assistance is not guaranteed if a place is offered. We attempt to help as many families as possible, but funds are limited: awards will therefore be based on the child’s performance in the entrance examination and the degree of assistance required. The level of fee remission will be determined on a sliding scale which will offer up to 100% reduction in fees. Assistance towards the cost of school uniform, school meals and travel costs may also be available in cases of particular need.
