Brief description of entry evaluation required

An interview is required to ensure that students and their families assess the school as much as we check to make sure the student is the right fit for the college. If a student has not studied in English before, we may ask them to do an assessment to determine their level so that we can offer the appropriate level of support from the start. If a student has not done GCSE / IGCSE, we may arrange to do an assessment to check their knowledge of an A level subject is sufficient for them to suceed in the A level. Every case is individual.
