Admissions for September 2023

Entry to Ribston Hall in September 2023

Ribston Hall High School is a selective girls’ grammar school for ages 11-16 and offers a mixed Sixth Form. All students must sit the Grammar School Entrance Test in September 2022 and gain a pass to be eligible for a place.

Ribston Hall has specialised in educating girls in Gloucester for over 100 years. We foster a supportive environment which allows our students to grow academically and socially, equipping them with the skills and values to make worthy contributions to society. We are often complimented on the ‘family feel’ of Ribston Hall.

Familiarisation and Information Booklets along with our Admissions Policy for 2023-2024 will be published shortly.

Our Admissions team are Mrs D Murphy, Admissions Manager, and Mrs L Iles, Deputy Admissions Officer. They are happy to advise on any queries that cannot be answered by the information given below and can be reached on or 01452 382249.
