Applicants should have the required background experience and qualifications to start a course. For a typical A Level course, the College normally requires 5 GCSE passes at grades A* – C / 9 – 4, including English and Mathematics. A satisfactory IELTS score is an alternative to GCSE.
If an international student, reports from the applicant’s present or most recent school should indicate satisfactory attitudes and conduct on the part of parents and applicant.
Each applicant will be interviewed by the Principal or another senior and experienced member of staff. The style of the interview is intended to be natural and informal, and provides an opportunity for the family to take its own decision over the education on offer as well as for the College to learn about the family and the applicant. The selection process differs between “home” students and those who need a UK visa in order to study (see Pre-CAS).
English Language Requirements: IELTS 5.5 or equivalent (international students only).
