Plymouth College is a co-educational day and boarding school for pupils aged 3-18 years. If you think you might be interested in joining Plymouth College then we recommend you begin your journey with a visit. A brief initial visit will enable you to see the College at first hand, meet some of our pupils and teachers and get to know us a little better. We can offer you a bespoke visit, tailored to your interests. Alternatively, you might want to attend one of our open days. Thereafter, we can offer you a follow-up taster day so that you are able to gain a fuller experience of a day in the life of the College.
Your next step is to then register. Our professional and supportive Admissions team will guide you through this process. We will need to take your details and arrange for you to undertake our selection process. Whilst we are an academically non-selective school, all applicants for the Senior School are asked to sit an entrance test in English and Mathematics to help us ensure that Plymouth College is an appropriate context for the pupil. We will also seek references from your existing school and ask that you meet with the Headmaster and other senior teachers. For those to whom it is relevant, we can also begin to explore the availability of financial assistance.
Whilst this is the typical journey, we try to make the admissions process a bespoke experience and we strive to tailor what happens to meet the needs of different applicants, including those pupils from overseas.
Once you have received and accepted an offer of a place from the Headmaster, our Admissions team will support you right up to and beyond the point where you join the school, assisting you with everything from uniform, travel, welcome and induction events and everything else you need to ensure a smooth and successful beginning to your Plymouth College experience.
