At Victoria College, we offer your son a world of opportunity.








Admissions for Victoria College Preparatory School (Years 3-6)

We are an academically successful school for boys and welcome applications from all social and cultural backgrounds regardless of ethnicity, culture, religion, or home language. Our registration process has been carefully designed to ensure each boy is in the right place to succeed.

Boys can join us at different stages in their educational journey and they can all be guaranteed that a warm welcome awaits them at Victoria College Preparatory School (VCP.) The main point of entry for our boys is in Year 3, for those aged six to seven when the school year starts in September. We also have occasional places in other year groups. We offer up to 75 places in each year group.

Our aim is to make the transition as smooth as possible for your son, and for the rest of the family. Please do not hesitate to pick the phone up and talk to us at any time. Our Admissions Secretary Mrs. Katharine Illing, will be very happy to answer any questions you may have about an education with us.

We work closely with Victoria College, our secondary school, where nearly all our students continue their education. This close connection ensures a smooth transition to the next stage of learning.

For further details please review our Admissions Policy.

Admissions for Victoria College (Years 7-11)


We are a selective school and admission is determined by your son's academic performance and record of attendance and behaviour. Each applicant sits short tests in core subjects of English and Mathematics during a day when he can visit the school and start getting to know it. 

We will also seek a reference and educational attainment data from his previous schools via a standard questionnaire.

The College aims to educate boys who are committed to their work and will benefit from the unique environment of our school. We look carefully at each candidate to ensure that there is a good fit and that he will feel comfortable and able to contribute to the positive learning environment at Victoria College.

You can read more about our admissions procedures in the Admissions Policy. For any further admissions queries, please contact Admissions Secretary, Isabelle Cunningham via email:, or call 01534 638222.

Admissions for Victoria College Sixth Form             (Years 12-13)

If your son is aspiring towards higher education and is keen to work hard and achieve at the highest levels, we look forward to welcoming him to Sixth Form at Victoria College. We are a selective school and applications are determined by past academic performance and record of attendance and behaviour.

To enter the Sixth Form at Victoria College, your son will need a minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) of 4.8 and a minimum of Grade 4 in both English and mathematics GCSE, which we will expect him to improve and upgrade to a Grade 5 by November.

If he would like to access three full A level subjects, he will also need a minimum GPA of 5.5 at GCSE.

All prospective Sixth Formers have an interview with the Headmaster and Head of Sixth Form before they can join. Where a candidate is new to Victoria College, a satisfactory reference will be required from their current school.

Students who are already at Victoria College will need to show a good record of good behaviour, attendance and a positive attitude to his studies - or a genuine undertaking to address any issues raised at interview before a conditional offer of a place will be made.
