International Application Process

International Application Process

Our Admissions Team will guide you through every step of the application process and work closely with the Heads of Schools to ensure your child feels happy and supported in their transition to Queen Ethelburga’s.

We will need to contact your school, agent, or test centre to administer our online tests as we will require there to be an invigilator.
