How to apply

Application process

We accept up to 150 students into Y12 each year from our own Y11 students and a wide range of other schools in Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Swindon, Oxfordshire and much further afield across the globe. Over 30% of our students join us having not studied with us before. This is our application process this year. If you have missed these deadlines but are interested in a place, then get in touch for a discussion to see whether you can still apply.

Our entry requirements are 5 x 4 grades at GCSE including English and Maths. There is specific entry criteria for several of our A level courses.
