Admission to St. Mary's College in Year 7 is based on an informal interview, primary school report plus an entrance examination consisting of a Cognitive Abilities Test as well as English and Mathematics papers.

The date for our entrance examination for 2022 entry is Friday 19th November 2021, with interviews as well as our Art, Music and Sport Scholarship assessments taking place the previous week. 

If places are available, individual admission is possible at other levels of entry, especially into Year 10, when pupils commence their GCSE examinations.

Sixth Form admission is based on a combination of interview, present school report (for external applications) and performance at GCSE. As a guide, applicants should have received a combined total of at least 36 points in their seven best GCSEs and they should have achieved at least a grade 6 in the GCSE subjects they wish to take forward as their A Level subject choices and preferably a 7-9 grade. 

St. Mary’s College offers Sixth Form Scholarships (based on interview and academic assessment) and we also award Sixth Form Excellence Awards for those gifted in Art, Music and Sport. The date of our Sixth Form scholarship examination for 2022 entry is Friday 19th November 2021.

Details of all aspects of the admissions process can be obtained from the school office.
