Welcome from the Admissions Registrar

Thank you for enquiring about the admissions process at Christ College.

Joining the school is a simple, uncomplicated and based on the following stages and process:

  • Pupils normally enter the senior school aged 11, 13 or 16. Sometimes boys and girls are admitted at other stages in their education.  We also accept pupils between the ages of 7 - 11 years. Please see the St Nicholas House section for details.
  • Candidates entering at 11 and 13 are expected to take entrance tests in Mathematics, English and an IQ test. A school report is requested.
  • Candidates entering at 16 are expected to gain 6 GCSEs at Grade C or better. A report from the previous school is also requested.

A first step in getting to know the school might be to visit one of our Open Mornings or to ring me to arrange an individual visit at any time. We hold our Open Mornings in October and March.

The typical format for an Open day is as follows:

  • Families should arrive at Y Neuadd Goffa - The Memorial Hall where they will be welcomed by Christ College staff.
  • Registration.
  • Welcome address from the Head, Mr Gareth Pearson.
  • Individual tour of the school by a Sixth Form pupil.
  • Opportunities to chat with key members of staff such as the Head, Bursar, Director of Studies and the Admissions Registrar.
  • Lunch in the medieval dining hall. 

Many prospective pupils take up the offer of a 'Taster Day' before their parents register them for the school. The next stage would be to sit tests after which an offer letter will be sent out. Acceptance of this offer secures a place in the school.

Entrance and Scholarship Assessments for entry in September 2018 will take place on:

  • For Year 7 and Year 9 - Entrance and Scholarship Friday 2nd and Saturday 3rd February
  • For entrance into our new Junior section (Years 3 to 6) 2018 Please contact admissions

However please contact me to discuss your requirements as individual assessments/entrance test will continue throughout the academic year.
