International Admissions

International Admissions

We have a long history of welcoming international students to St Edmund’s College and these students fully integrate into life at St Edmund’s forming a diverse, happy cohort of students.

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 but also enjoy a full programme of co-curricular experiences at the weekends.

The admission of international students is selective and by an individual assessment which comprises of an interview and entry test. Students must have a sound educational background and a good character. An interest in music or sports is always an advantage. 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 ages 11-14 years are in English and Maths. Entry to GCSE and A Level courses is by testing and interview as appropriate. All students whose parents live outside the UK are required to have a responsible adult living in the UK to act as guardians.
