Once we have the above documentation all applicants are assessed in English and Maths. The English assessment includes the Oxford Online Placement with a written paper and the Maths paper is relevant to the Year group you will join. Entrance papers can take place during a visit to the school, a meeting overseas with the Director of Admissions, at the office of an approved Educational representative or at the British Council Office. Once we have the completed assessments the school will advise which year group is most suitable for you and how many, if any, additional ESOL lessons are required. The Head of ESOL may also wish to Skype with you should he feel that your English requires a verbal assessment.
Across most of our year groups an international student can access language support (ESOL or IELTS classes). Ideally where possible we welcome potential students and their parents/guardian to visit the school. This allows you to see the school first hand and have the opportunity to chat to subject teachers and meet with current students. However where this is not possible you may have the opportunity to meet the Director of Admissions in your own city or alternatively a skype appointment will be arranged.
