Entrance assessment for international students
We welcome students with a broad range of academic abilities, reflecting our belief that each child has unique talents and potential to offer. Our assessment process is designed to be as relaxed as possible, so that we can understand your child’s potential, as much as their current levels of achievement. Written assessments for entry are often arranged by our admissions team and often this can be sat at your current school or even at home.
UKiset for applicants whose first language is not English
Applicants aged 9.5 years and older, take the online UKiset test; an assessment specifically designed for international applicants to British independent schools. This test can be taken at approved test centres around the world, or in person at the school.. Once the test has been taken, UKiset send us a full electronic report of the results. Subject to performance in the UKiset test, students are invited to interview (usually via Skype).
