*Please note that as the IGCSE and IB Diploma are two-year courses, pupils should start them at the beginning of each cycle (Form 4 for the IGCSE and Lower Sixth for the IB). We therefore do not have entry points in Form 5 and the Upper Sixth. Pupils arriving from schools that follow the southern hemisphere academic year will need to repeat six months of their studies in order to be able to enter into the northern hemisphere academic year that we follow (whereby the beginning of the academic year is in August.)
