Making an initial application for a place

If you are interested in requesting a place in Secondary (age 11 to 15), we encourage you to contact us at least one full year before the proposed date of entry.

Step 1:

Contact us:

– Complete and send our online application form.

– Call us on + 34 96 142 41 72.

Step 2:

After receiving your online application, the Admissions Department will contact you to inform you about the availability of places.

Depending on availability, a visit will be organised online or in person.

Step 3:

After your visit, the Admissions Department will send you the instructions in order to complete the online pre-enrolment form.

Where applicable, end of year school reports from the last two academic years must be sent.

Step 4:

If a place is available in the corresponding year group, we will give the student an appointment to come to sit entrance tests.

Students will sit entrance tests in English and Mathematics, as well as a cognitive ability test.

If, due to distance, the student cannot come to school to sit the tests, they can be organised at the student’s current school.

An informal online or in-person meeting will be organised for the pupil with a member of the Secondary Leadership Team.

Step 5:

If the student has obtained good results in the entrance tests, we will request references from their current school.

Step 6:

Places are offered depending on the results in entrance tests, grades in school reports from the previous two academic years and the references received.

Places in optional subjects in Year 10 are subject to availability.

Step 7:

If a place is offered and accepted, parents may confirm it by completing the online enrolment form, which the Admissions Department will provide.

Once the enrolment has been received, you will be charged the corresponding enrolment fee.

After the enrolment has been confirmed, families will receive their access codes for the Parent Area, one of the main tools of communication with the school.

In order to welcome you and your child to your new school and to prepare for the year ahead, an Induction Morning takes place before the start of term.  This offers your child the opportunity to meet with the Secondary Leadership Team, their tutor, other Caxton College pupils, and to visit the classroom and school grounds. This is a great opportunity to ask any questions they may have regarding their first year at Caxton College.

The application does not legally bind you to taking a place at Caxton College.

Applications do not confirm places as these are subject to availability.

Places are offered on a first come first served basis. Where places are not available students will be added to the waiting list.

If your child is on the waiting list and a place becomes available, we will contact you to start the admissions process.

To be able to choose certain optional subjects, a high grade may be required in that subject at the end of Year 9.
