School Entry Points

One of the important questions faced by families of international students is when to send their children to the UK.

Every family is different and that is why we tailor our consultancy package specific to your needs.

Below are 4 of the most common entry points and ages for local and international students.

Age 3 - 8

Prep School

Traditionally, pre-preps take children from age 3 or 4 and prepare them to move to a prep school at age 7 or 8 (usually school year 3 or 4), with occasional places at age 9 or 10.

Age 11 - 13

Upper School

This is the main entry point of most top schools. For girls, it is age 11 for Year 7 entry and for boys it is age 13 for Year 9 entry. This is the largest intake cohort across all entry points.

Age 15

IGCSE Courses

Some top schools have one year intensive IGCSE courses for international students. This type of programme aims at an easier transition for students who have not studied in the UK before.

Age 16 - 17

Sixth Form

A popular choice for international students and therefore incredibly competitive. Success rate is between 1:5 to 1:20. We encourage students to prepare at least 2 years in advance to secure best results.
