How to apply

The Admissions Office is open in term-time and during the School holidays.  If you have any questions, please get in touch on 01737 649001.

Please use the links below to apply for a place at the Royal Alexandra and Albert School. 

Please note that the school cannot consider an application unless an application form has been submitted. If you are applying for a Flexi Boarding place to join Year 3 or Year 7 at the start of the Autumn term, please complete the application form on Surrey County Council's website (or the website of your home local authority).

Boarding applications can be made directly to the School via the links below. 

More information about the allocation of places and how applications are prioritised can be found in the Admissions Policy page and in the Need for Flexi/Boarding page. 

The Royal Alexandra and Albert School is a state boarding school. Parents are advised that, should their child not hold a British or Irish passport, it is in their interest to check their child's eligibility for state education in the UK. Further information can be found here. Eligibility can be checked on the website here

Boarding Application (Year 3-11)
Please use this form, also known as a supplementary form, if you are applying for a Boarding Place. Whilst there are many priorities for admission to boarding, in practice, the majority of applications fall into the sixth priority.  In most cases, a timely application will ensure that a boarding bed is available to the applicant, provided the child is assessed as suitable for boarding.
