International

‘A true English public school experience’ for international pupils.

Pitsford School has a long tradition of welcoming international students throughout the school – and especially at A level – and our diverse and academic community is a happy and dynamic one.

To join Pitsford School from overseas you should apply through the same links as domestic students and we will coordinate remote testing and interviews. We can also advise on the VISA application process. Pitsford School has a Tier 4 licence through UKVI and is in a position to apply for Visas on behalf of our students.

Our overseas students are fully integrated into our pastoral structure, being placed in form groups with domestic students which supports their acclimatisation, as well as creating long-lasting friendships and, where relevant helping in the development and strengthening of English.

We have a broad curriculum at Key Stages 3 and 4, including three separate sciences and Mathematics and Further Mathematics. Our university admissions service is outstanding, offering bespoke support to our students in applications to UK or overseas universities, with especial help given in terms of research and the completion of applications. We are an academic school and we expect high standards while ensuring there is sufficient support in place that every student can be the best of themselves and progress to where they want and deserve to be.

Our Head of Sixth Form, Mrs King, is also our Head of English as a Foreign Language and she takes particular care of our overseas students. A very experienced and qualified IELTS examiner, Mrs King is happy to answer questions or to discuss the Pitsford experience with any prospective families.
