Joining Ryde

    Parents seeking the admission of their sons or daughters are asked to complete and return a registration form, available below for download in PDF format, and arrange payment of the non-returnable registration fee.  Admission and entry will be subject to the availability of a place and the pupil satisfying our admission requirements.

    In due course applicants will be invited to sit the relevant entrance tests. Although we do not run competitive entrance exams, we do need to ensure that all pupils can access our academic curriculum.  In the case of girls and boys entering the Sixth Form from other British curriculum schools, admission is based on interview and GCSE results and we would expect students joining our Sixth Form to have as a minimum five GCSE passes at grades A* to C with B grades in subjects to be studied at A Level/Higher Level.

    Pupils are considered for entry into any year group throughout the School where there are places available.  We would not normally consider entry half way through GCSE or A Level/ IB courses though we do offer a one year GCSE programme for pupils joining in Year 11 which is ideal for someone wanting to prepare for Sixth form entry or seeking a year in a British school with qualifications at the end.

    It is assumed that a pupil will be able to continue between each stage of their education in the school unless the pupil has been unable to satisfy the entry requirements for the next stage.
