Year 9 Entry

For entry into Year 9 all students are required to sit a pre-test before receiving an offer. The online test does not require any prior preparation and allows us to ensure that we can meet the needs of each child who hopes to join Ampleforth College. Further details are available from the Admissions Office.

Students coming from prep schools will normally sit Common Entrance and we work with your school to coordinate this part of the application process. We ask for a minimum score of 50% at Common Entrance, although in practice most students attain a significantly higher score.
