After visiting, parents are invited to register – this means that a place is reserved until the entrance procedure is complete. Registration usually occurs at least a year before entry but later applications are always considered if space allows.
Assessment of applicants is usually via Common Entrance and interview. Places are offered at the beginning of the March subject to Common Entrance results in June.
For those who have not been prepared for Common Entrance, places are offered after Entrance assessments in the Spring Term preceding entry. These consist of English and Maths papers, based on the National Curriculum for which no special preparation is needed/expected.
Scholarship candidates are assessed in the Spring Term preceding entry; details can be found here.
No place will be offered without a full reference from the pupil’s current school.
We welcome pupils who require learning support, providing the specific needs of the child can be managed within the school’s normal provision. Parents are advised to discuss their child’s individual needs as early as possible so that we can assess, together with parents and the child’s current school, whether the College will provide the right learning environment for the child to reach their full potential.
Places are conditional upon parental acceptance of our published Parent Contract (terms and conditions) and the payment of a deposit.
