University Entrance

GCSE, IGCSE and 'A' levels are accepted by Universities all over the world, although individual universities may have their own requirements/procedures. The majority of The New School students choose universities in the UK, others go to Universities in the U.S.A., their own countries or Italy. Students are encouraged to begin thinking about their University courses at the end of Year 11 and before they choose their AS and A-levels. In Year 12 and Year 13 they are given specialised help and guidance in making their choice and applications through UCAS. The school stages mock university interviews to help and guide the pupils through the application  process. 100% of our pupils go on to a university education.


Universities offer places to students on the strength of their GCSEs, ‘AS’ and predicted ‘A’ Level results.


Students require passes in 6 subjects at GCSE and ‘A’level (at least 2 of these at ‘A’ Level).  Italian nationals are also required to sit an examination in Italian language and culture based on a supplementary course organised by The New School.


Students must have completed a course of study at High school.  They are offered places on the basis of scores in S.A.T. exams taken in Year 13 and qualify for advanced placement on the strength of ‘A’ Level results.
