We will ask for a reference from the candidate’s current school and once the assessment process is complete, we will notify parents and guardians with offers of places which will need to be formally accepted.
Admission at other stages may be possible, places permitting - please contact the Registrar on 0118 976 7415.
In Form 3 (Year 9), pupils joining the College will have normally sat Common Entrance exams. Those results, alongside information gathered from a pupil's previous school, help place individuals into sets in relevant subjects.
Pupils are set broadly by ability in Mathematics, English, Science and Humanities. For practical subjects, classes are of mixed ability.
Studying Latin is also an option in Form 3, but is currently taught off timetable.
