Overseas students for whom English is not their first language, may join the school either directly into the Sixth Form for A levels, Year 10 for a 2-year GCSE course or into Year 9 for a pre-GCSE course.
We have very few places for overseas students, usually only 10-15 in the Sixth Form and 2-3 per year at the younger age groups. This means that overseas students do get a true English public school experience.
English language entry requirement depends upon year of entry;
- Sixth Form entry requires IELTS 5.5 or greater
- Year 9 entry requires IELTS 4.0 or greater.
Sixth Form Students who have not achieved at least level 6.5 IELTS or equivalent will be required to attend EFL lessons as well as their A level courses.
