Dear Prospective Families,

We welcome children from 3 to 18 years old across all year groups from Ante Preschool to Secondary 6. Key entry points are Nursery, Primary 1, Primary 6 and Secondary 1, however applications for all year groups are welcomed. Most pupils will join the College at the start of an academic session in August, however mid-session applications may also be submitted. Usually, a child’s date of birth will dictate the appropriate year group for which they are eligible to join.

Robert Gordon’s College is an academically selective school and we welcome children and young people who will benefit from our progressive curriculum and make a positive contribution to the College, both inside and outside of the classroom. All applicants are invited to the College for an entrance assessment which varies according to the year group applied for. The Admissions Team will be happy to provide detailed information regarding individual year group entrance assessments.

We look forward to welcoming you to Robert Gordon’s College.

Kind regards,

Tarah Gillespie
Admissions Manager
