School Admissions Process | Sherborne International

School Admissions Process

We work closely with all applicants to make the school admissions process to apply for a place to study here as simple as possible.

Step 1 – Register your interest

  • Complete our online form to register your interest in our courses
  • We contact you, normally within one day, to advise if we have any availability on the chosen course
  • If so, we will gather any additional details required at this stage

Step 2 – Complete school admission application form

  • Complete and sign the School Admission Application Form and send it to us, along with:
    • Payment of the £100 application fee (by credit card, bank transfer or cheque)
    • A copy of the student’s passport
    • A current school report, translated into English, including marks and report on general behaviour and attitude to study

Step 3 – Placement tests & Skype interviews

  • We will evaluate the completed documentation and contact you to agree a time for a Skype interview with the student and arrange any tests

Step 4 – Offer place

  • If the interview and test results are positive, we will offer you a place
  • On acceptance of the offer, a non-refundable deposit of £1500 is payable to confirm the place

Step 5 – Visa application

  • Once funds are received, all documentation will be processed, including a unique Confirmation of Acceptance for Study (CAS) number that is essential to obtain a Student Visa (for non-EEU members)
  • Should the Visa application be unsuccessful, we will refund your deposit
