They sit a written examination appropriate to their age which normally includes a paper in a modern foreign language.

We would normally expect a minimum of five GCSEs at A* - C with a B in those subjects to be studied. A satisfactory reference from Kingsley’s Head of Year 11 or, if the student is from another school, from a senior member of staff, is also required.

Students are invited for formal interviews with the Headteacher and the Head of Sixth Form and will need to provide evidence of their GCSE results.
