Girls coming to the United Kingdom with their family
We welcome a number of international students into the school every year. If you are moving to the United Kingdom and bringing your daughter with you on your visa, or if your daughter holds a UK passport, she may join Northampton High School by following our standard entry procedures as long as she is currently attending an International School following the UK education system.

We are pleased to make individual admissions arrangements for girls wishing to relocate to the UK. Entrance assessments may be completed in your daughter’s local school prior to your relocation to the UK.

Girls coming to the United Kingdom without family
We hold places for a small number of girls from overseas schools who are planning to live in the UK without their parents, by sponsoring their stay through our Tier 4 Child Sponsor licence through the UK Border Agency.

We work in partnership with Gateway Education who assist us with admissions. Gateway Education will arrange for the appropriate examinations and interviews to take place. We ask that girls are proficient in the English language and hold an average IELTS score of 5.5 or equivalent.

Girls who have English as an additional language (EAL) are required to take EAL lessons in school and are charged for these separately, in order to ensure that they are ready for university study when the times comes. As we are a day school, all girls will stay with host families arranged by Gateway Education.

For further information about international applications, please contact us on or 01604-765765 (option 2 for Admissions) and we will be
happy to assist you.
