The School is currently being restructured and from September 2023 will be divided into Nursery School, Pre-Prep, Prep (Years 4 to7) and Senior School (Years 8 to 13).

Academic levels are high at Runnymede College. In June 2022, 67% of our students achieved A-A* at A level, with 98% of grades being A*-C. This is particularly impressive when compared with the 58% of A*-A grades achieved at independent (private) schools in England this year. In addition, 74% of our pupils gained A*-A grades at IGCSE. Once again, this is a truly excellent achievement when compared with the 53% of A*- A grades at GCSE obtained in the English independent (private) school sector.
In the graduating class of 2022, one student will be studying Maths at Oxford; another will begin her course in Architecture at Cambridge. Other top-ranking UK universities welcoming this year’s graduates include St Andrews, Imperial, UCL, Edinburgh and Bath. The United States has attracted more pupils than ever, with pupils starting their higher education at Columbia, Stanford, UPenn, Johns Hopkins and Duke, amongst other excellent colleges.
In Spain, IE and Navarra are both popular with this year’s leavers, and it is pleasing to see many of our newest Old Runnymedians attend universities in other EU countries like the Netherlands (Eindhoven, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Twente), France, Ireland (Trinity College Dublin) and Italy (Bocconi).
