International Students

The International Department promotes the success of international students within the College whose first language is not English or who have come from overseas.  International students are integrated into every aspect of life at St Edmund’s – they follow a full curriculum and take advantage of English language teaching and support as required.

The admission of international students is selective and by individual assessment, which includes an interview and entry test.  Students must have a sound educational background and a good character.   The preferred age of entry is at 11+, 14+ and 16+.

Students will need to supply transcripts of their school reports and a school reference.  If successful, students will be placed in the appropriate school year for their chronological age.  Entry tests for 11 – 14 years are in English, Mathematics and Science.  Entry to GCSE and A Level courses is by test and interview.

All students whose parents live outside the UK are required to have a responsible adult living in the UK to act as guardian.  For further details, or to make an application, please contact the International Department:
