Candidates who enter for academic awards and who are successful will have satisfied the academic requirements for entry into the School. If unsuccessful the School may or may not waive the need for them to fulfill usual entry requirements (such as Common Entrance).
Candidates for all other scholarships will be required to meet the usual academic entry standards for the School, whether they are successful in their scholarships or not. In brief these standards are: At 13+, a pass at Common Entrance or in the School’s own entrance tests; At 16+, three B grade passes and two C grade passes at GCSE or an equivalent standard in other examinations.
For sports scholarships, candidates will also be required to sit a verbal reasoning paper. In addition, applicants for whom English is not a first language will be required to pass language proficiency tests.
