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.

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. 

Our entrance examination for 2022 entry into Year 7 took place on Friday 19th November 2021 but late registrations may be considered at the discretion of the Principal.
