Entry Requirements


The college has an inclusive admissions policy, which means that, in principle, all students are eligible to enter the school, provided that the school can cater for their needs and they have a suitable level of English for their age group. Prospective students are assessed in English and Maths and must provide copies of past school reports to ensure we can target our programmes effectively for each child’s individual needs.

Provided the entrance test results, past school reports and interview where applicable are satisfactory, and there is space in the appropriate class, a place will be offered.

Pupils who do not speak English as a first language will be considered as long as satisfactory support strategies can be established, which may include a commitment for extra tuition after school hours.

Detailed entry requirements for specific year groups:
