No, there is no fixed pass mark. We look at each individual pupil’s scores as well as at their school reference. We know the sort of level that has been achieved in the past that will ensure that a pupil will thrive and be happy at our school. It is not in our interests, or the pupil’s interests, to be offered a place at the school if they are going to find the work too hard. As a general rule, however, if a child is scoring above half marks on the practice papers, that suggests s/he will be fine. Please see our Admissions section to access the Sample Papers.
Sometimes pupils are weaker in just one subject area. Where the exam results show this to be the case, we usually invite pupils in to school for an interview and we discuss the situation with parents.
