Mount Kelly welcomes applicants who live overseas. Our vibrant and busy seven day a week boarding community allows pupils to fully integrate and make the most of all the excellent opportunities available at our school.
The application process for places in Year 3 to Year 11 the admission process will run along exactly the same lines as for UK residents. We invite all applicants to visit the school and meet the staff. In cases where this is not possible an interview will be conducted via Skype. For the younger children one of our Prep teachers will talk to the child to assess their level of English.
For entry into Year 6 and above entrance assessments are required and we are happy for applicants to sit our entrance tests overseas under appropriate supervision.
For entry to our Sixth Form the criteria are the same as for the younger children but you may be required to sit entry tests in your chosen A Level subjects.
Mount Kelly has children who board from the age of 7 and we are therefore delighted to welcome enquiries from parents of younger children.
We have a limited number of places for short term applications at the College and these are usually for a minimum of two terms, however parents looking for an excellent opportunity for younger children to improve their English, at the Prep we are happy to offer single term places. We are sorry but we cannot accept short term applicants to start in the Lent Term of Year 11, we do however, offer a one year GCSE course for applicants who can demonstrate the academic ability with which to succeed in this demanding programme.
Parents living overseas must appoint a guardian for their son or daughter. The guardian will have authority to act on behalf of the parents if necessary and make arrangements for time away from school and travel.
