We welcome interest from the international community and fully embrace the benefits for our British students in terms of making friends, extending their horizons and learning from other cultures, languages and perspectives. With easy access to the London airports, and with this inclusive reputation, Prior Park is very popular with pupils from all over the world.
The majority of pupils applying from outside the UK, apply via an educational agency. The main reasons for this are that we require the use of educational consultants/agents to help pupils through the admissions process, to administer entrance tests and to supply translated school reports. If you do not use an educational agent, then entrance tests will either need to be administered via the candidate’s existing school or at British Council offices. All international students are required to sit tests in English as an Additional Language and Mathematics.
If a pupil is already studying in the UK we would ask them
to visit the College to sit entrance tests and be interviewed by the
Registrar and the Headmaster.
If an offer is made, parents are asked to complete and return an acceptance form with a deposit of £1000 for EU citizens or a term’s fees for non-EU citizens. This will be refunded when the pupil leaves the College. This deposit will be forfeited if a pupil withdraws prior to entry.
