Admission into Year 7 in September 2020
Applications for places must be made on the Common Application Form provided and administered by Croydon Local Authority or the Borough in which you live. Applications must be made by 31st October 2019. Riddlesdown Collegiate no longer requires a separate supplementary form to be completed.
Parents are welcome to attend one of our Open Mornings with Year 6 children, in order to see the Collegiate during the working day and to see the high quality of our work. We encourage parents from Feeder Schools to attend on specific days to minimise disruption in those schools; if this is not possible, please make an appointment for another day.
Open morning visits shoud be pre-booked through the online booking process (click here). Please note - if your chosen date is not available through the booking form, this means that particular tour is full and we are unable to accept further bookings for that morning.
The Entrance Examination will take place on the morning of Saturday 5th October 2019. If you wish to apply for your child to sit the Entrance Examination please complete the form below. The closing date for applications is Monday 30th September at 9.00 am. Please note, late applications will not be accepted.
