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.

If the student comes from a school following the British curriculum, predicted grades for GCSE exams will be requested.

These students are not required to complete entrance tests. Provisional places may be offered subject to official GCSE grades once received.

The candidate must comply with the the school’s internal progression policy, which will be provided by the Admissions Department.

For students coming from other education systems

These students must complete entrance tests for the A Level subjects they have chosen, as well as an English language test. The candidate must comply with the the school’s internal progression policy, which will be provided by the Admissions Department.

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:

Where a candidate has adequate predicted GCSE grades or suitable entrance test results we will request a reference from their current school.

Step 6:

Places for students coming from schools following the British curriculum will be offered based on grades in school reports from the previous two academic years, predicted GCSE grades and references received.

Places in optional subjects in Year 12 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.

Before joining the school

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 to the Sixth Form and to prepare for the year ahead, an Induction Morning takes place before the start of term.  This offers you the opportunity to meet with the Secondary Leadership Team, your tutor, other members of the Sixth Form, and to visit the classrooms and school grounds. This is a great opportunity to ask any questions you may have regarding your first year at Caxton College.
