We ask for three 7 grades (or grade A) and above and another three 6 grades (or grade B) and above. These should include English and mathematics and, where applicable, the subjects chosen for IB Higher Level or A-Level. We allocate places on academic merit, considered alongside the potential to contribute to our co-curricular programme.
