There are three points of entry into the School – the 13+ (Year 9) entry, the 14+ (Year 10 – Two-Year GCSE course) entry and the 15+ (Year 11 – One-Year GCSE course) entry. We also have the 14-16 entry point to our Fast Track Course. Pupils may apply for full boarding, weekly boarding or day places.
Pupils may take the entrance tests either at The Mount, Mill Hill International or at an office invigilated by an agreed School or agent. All candidates are interviewed by our Headteacher (either face-to-face or via Skype) and sit entrance tests in Mathematics, Verbal Reasoning, Non-verbal Reasoning, Spatial ability and written English.
If you are unsure of which entry point is best for your child, or client, our dedicated and experienced admissions team will be happy to advise. As a guide, Year 9 pupils are required to have an IELTS level of 4.0 (or equivalent); Year 10 ( for the Two-Year GCSE course) a minimum of 4.5 IELTS (or equivalent); the One Year GCSE Course a minimum of 5.0 IELTS (or equivalent) and the Fast Track Course a minimum of 3.0 – 4.0 IELTS (or equivalent). Pupils do not need to have taken an IELTS test; IELTS levels are used as indicators of English ability. School references and the latest School reports will be required, and these form an important part of the decision making process.
