Our policy throughout the admissions process is to allocate the appropriate placement for the candidate so that he/she may benefit fully from the education we offer. The procedure for admission to the school varies according to the age of the candidate.

At Saint Michael’s College all students who apply are asked to sit our English and Maths entry tests (these are normally sat under the supervision of educational agents in the students’ own country).

Decisions on admissions are often taken in conjunction with educational agents as they often have a more specialized knowledge of the educational standards in their own countries and we do not select students on the basis of gender.

We expect students to have completed the equivalent of Year 9 (either in the UK or in their own country) before we allow them to start a GCSE course. We do not select GCSE students on their English language ability.
