Entry assessment covers English Language testing, non-verbal reasoning, mathematical ability and language ability. Based on the assessment and other information (previous school reports, a reference check with current school and an interview), the Head of Primary/Secondary determines if a place in the school is appropriate for the student.
English language is the medium of teaching and learning and so participation in all aspects of school life requires a command of English. The offer of a place may be unconditional or, for students who need to improve their English ability, dependent on successfully completing our Intensive English Course (IEC), before transferring to the mainstream classes.
