Equal Opportunity Institution:
Royal School (RS) follows a non-discriminatory admissions policy, which ensures that children are not discriminated or refused admission based on their gender, race, culture, creed, as long as there exists compatibility with our school’s philosophy. Students may consider an admissions application at any point during the academic year. All applications for admission are given equal status by our school and no child is excluded on the basis of nationality, culture, religious beliefs or academic ability.
RS offers an international education approved by the Romanian Ministry of Education and Research, and based on the National Curriculum for England, and on the Cambridge Curriculum (for the high-school). Our curriculum has been adapted to meet the needs of both the Romanian and international students.
Parents must understand before enrolling their children at RS that we are an international school and offer an English learning experience with the addition of Romanian, Hungarian, German, French, Spanish Language during 2 hours/week offered as mother tongue. It is equally not part of RS ethos to act as a solely English Language centre.
During the admission process and the following half term induction period, parents are obliged to provide the office with the academic history from previous schools and also where necessary, records of special educational needs (SEN), along with medical records of their children. An IEP (individual educational plan) is agreed with the parents where necessary and is reviewed and refreshed each half

Siblings Policy: (see separate policy statement)
RS encourages families to educate all their children in our school. We will offer a discounted fee structure based on the number of siblings educated
at Royal School. You can find more information regarding the various discounts extended to parents in the Tuition Contract.
Class group sizes are limited to 16-20. Children in nursery classes younger than Year 1 will be limited to 16. If the number of prospective students surpasses the class limit, priority is given to those who expressed the earliest interest and the prompt payment; given priority until 15.05 to those who have already been enrolled in our school in the previous school year; after 15.0 everybody will benefit from the same priorities. The later candidate in a class where the places have been filled in, will be put on a waiting list.
Students on the waiting list will be admitted on a first in, first off basis. However, siblings of children already enrolled and attending will have priority for enrolment once a place becomes available in their age group. An enrolment fee of 200 euros must be paid in order to place a name on the waiting list.
