Pupils in Prep School study the school’s curriculum, alongside their peers. We regularly test the pupils’ understanding and progression through our internal tests, which are designed by Durham University.
We offer English as an Additional Language (EAL) and IELTS support to all our international pupils.
In the Senior School, the pathway to university education commences. Students are welcome to join Queen’s Senior School from the age of 11-18 years.
To gain entry to join us in the Senior School on our GCSE, iGCSE or Pre-A Level course, students are assessed on academic ability (in line with their age) and level of English. English is tested as a part of the entry process and pupils should demonstrate a level equivalent to B2 (Cambridge English), IELTS minimum 4.5.
Pupils who are not able to attain these levels can consider the one-term immersion courses and summer school study.
To gain entry to join us in Sixth Form, students must demonstrate an English Language Level of C1 (Cambridge Assessment) or 5.5 IELTS.
