We are not a selective school and we do not have admission criteria or language requirements for students entering up to and including Year 6. However, to enable them to be successful in the external examinations after Year 10, students applying to enter Year 7 and above need a progressively more skilled level of English, which will be assessed before confirmation of a place.
Because of the language requirements for successfully accessing the curriculum and for answering the examinations, though, we require our students and prospective students to demonstrate a minimum level of English skill in order to enter into Year 10 or Year 12.
For entry into Year 10, we expect students to be at least at the Upper Intermediate level of English (B2) according to Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
For entry into our A-Level programme (Sixth Form), the level of English should correspond with at least CEFR Advanced level (C1).
In addition to the level of English ability, the acceptance of students into Year 12 will also depend on their IGCSE exam results (at the end of the Key Stage 4 programme) or equivalent.
