Years 7-11 entry points
Our main entry points are Years 7 and 9. However, it is also possible for students to join us in Year 8 or Year 10 providing we have space in the year group. Our application process is the same regardless of entry point.

The application process
Our application process is designed for us to get to know you, and for you to get to know us.
We’re often asked about the academic requirements for entry into Years 7-11, and what we are looking for in a potential student in more general terms. Our school runs on openness, honesty and respect, and these are among the personal qualities we look for in a child. A sense of humour goes a long way too!
In terms of our entrance tests, the minimum level we require is roughly equivalent to the national average levels in Maths and English. However, our decisions are made based on much more than exam scores alone, and a child’s personality is just as important to us as their academic performance. We appreciate that visiting a school for the first time will always be a little nerve-wracking and this is why our admissions process takes place over several stages; we want your child to feel comfortable in the school so we can get to know them properly – and vice versa.
