Further information

You can apply for a place at Leighton Park via our Admissions Portal. Once the online registration form is completed you will be able to make the registration fee payment by credit card.

You will be asked to upload a copy of the student’s passport and latest school report.

Please note, the registration fee is non-refundable.

Students applying for a place in Years 7 – 10 and the Pre-Sixth course are required to sit tests in Maths and English.

If the student’s first language is not English they will be asked to sit an EAL (English as an Additional Language) test.

We understand that it may not be possible for students from overseas to sit the tests at Leighton Park School. Therefore, arrangements can be made via the Admissions Office for students to sit tests, under strict examination conditions, at their current school or if you are applying via an agent, in their offices.

In these circumstances the required interview with a member of our senior academic team will be arranged and carried out using Zoom.

If your student is offered and accepts a place at Leighton Park School they may require a visa to study in the UK.

Leighton Park School is able to issue a CAS which the student will require for their visa application. Should you need to discuss this please contact our Registrar. Students will not be able to commence their studies at Leighton Park without a valid visa.
