  • Academic background (e.g. having already completed a specific Year in the British system at a previous school);
  • Special circumstances based on observations and for specific social/emotional (not academic) reasons;

Please note: Each applicant is considered individually and with reference to previous educational experience but, based on best practice, we do not generally advocate putting children in classes in advance of their peers.

If, in our professional judgement, the student is not optimally placed, we may wish to change a student’s class and/or year group soon after admission. We will explain the reasons for suggesting such changes to the parents, who are key participants in the decision-making for this.

We do not accept enrolments into Year 13.
