Candidates for entry at 14+ (Year 10/Remove) are assessed by interview and written examinations in English and Mathematics.

Applications should only be made after an initial enquiry to confirm availability.  Sample papers are available on request.

16+ Candidates Resident in the UK

Sixth Form candidates are encouraged to apply in the Autumn Term of the year preceding entry, and are generally required to have a minimum of two 7 and three 6 grades at GCSE, with some subject-specific requirements.  Candidates wishing to apply in the Spring or Summer Terms should be aware that availability is likely to be limited.

We request confidential references and predicted grades from candidates’ schools, and based on this information, those who appear most academically suitable are invited to interview with Heads of chosen A Level subjects and a member of the Senior Team.

Offers are made to successful candidates, conditional upon achieving the required GCSE grades.

A wide variety of Scholarships, Awards and Bursaries are available to candidates resident in the UK.

We encourage prospective pupils and parents to attend one of our Open Events, or if possible to visit the school by special arrangement for a personalised tour.
