'Happiness' is a word you hear a lot here, the ethos being that if youngsters are happy then their self-worth and academics will follow.GOOD SCHOOLS' GUIDE 2019
Choosing the right school for your child is an important decision, and our Admissions team is always ready to answer your questions and guide you through the admissions process. Naturally, the best way to get a feel for the College is to visit, and we would be delighted to arrange this on an individual basis, or to meet you at one of our Open Mornings.
Pangbourne welcomes applications from children from any educational background. Our priority during the admissions process is to ensure that pupils are able to benefit positively from the curriculum and facilities on offer, and to enjoy academic and personal success in the future.
There are three main points of entry into the College – 11+ (Form 1), 13+ (Form 3) and 16+ (Sixth Form). Admission may be possible at other ages depending on place availability. Day, part boarding (four nights), weekly boarding (six nights) and full boarding places are available.
Pupils must take entrance examinations, either at the College or, if applicable, at their prep schools, and students entering Sixth Form are also expected to have at least five grade 4 GCSEs (formerly Cs in the previous grading structure).
A limited number of scholarships are awarded to talented students each year at Form 3 entry (or Music or Sport exhibitions for Form 1 entry). These are available for Academic, Sport, Music, Art, Drama and Design Technology. The College also offers a limited number of awards for Sixth Form entrants to the College for excellence in these fields.
The Admissions Registrar deals with all applications to Pangbourne College. For all Admissions queries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0118 976 7415.
