Wrekin College


1. Enquiring

Making an enquiry is the first stage of the admission process for overseas applicants. Following your call or email, or enquiry though an educational agent, we review your child’s report and information provided. This assists you, your agent and the school in determining whether Wrekin is the right choice for your child.

We are very happy to receive reports electronically. When contacting us by email, please direct your enquiry to the Admissions Department

2. Registering

After we have received your child's school report and confirmed that we would like to progress the application, the next step is to complete our registration form and return it to us, along with the overseas registration fee. This should be done a term in advance of the intended date of admission. You may also like to arrange an individual visit, to tour the school to meet our teachers and pupils. Please do call us to arrange this, we would be delighted to meet you and can also help with booking local accommodation and travel arrangements.

3. Assessments

Assessments can take place any time of year prior to entry. For further information on assessments and options for sitting our entry papers in your country of residence, please contact the admissions team. All applicants for whom English is not a native language will sit an assessment in English as a Foreign Language (EFL)*.

4. Confirmation and Acceptance

Pupils are offered places at Wrekin on the basis of their performance in the entry assessments. Signing and returning an original copy of the acceptance form, along with payment of the relevant acceptance deposit, confirms a place at Wrekin College.

For pupils joining us from outside the European Union, we are able to sponsor an application for a study visa in our role as a Highly Trusted Sponsor with the UK Border Agency.

*All applicants for whom English is not a native language will be required to attend EFL lessons until the Head of EFL is satisfied that the pupil has reached the standard of English necessary to study at a UK university, this may incur additional cost.

Boarding at Wrekin

About a quarter of our pupils board, Wrekin retains the values of a traditional boarding school, and the boarding ethos permeates all that we do. Boarding allows pupils to enjoy the independence and community spirit which comes from living with their peers. It can be great fun, and it also helps young people develop self-discipline, confidence, and an ability to get on with others. Click here to visit our Boarding section.
