Find out more about our Admissions Process

Navigating the admissions process for any new school can be a daunting process. Because our admissions process is designed specifically to create a student population that is aspirational, multi-cultural, multi-faith and multi-talented,  a community that is a true microcosm of the borough as a whole, it is important to understand how it will work.

We have created a thorough yet simple guide for you to refer to, and we hope you will be able to see how open and visionary our process is. 

Please take a look at our admissions explained page.
