Selecting a school can be a difficult process and it is important that you choose the school that will best suit your child and your family circumstances. Worth caters for boys and girls between the ages of 11 to 18, with just under 600 students at the school.
The majority of pupils join Worth at age 11 (Year 7), age 13 (Year 9) or age 16 for entry into the Sixth Form. However, pupils may also join the school in Years 8 and 10.
Please note that Worth welcomes day girls into the lower school (Year 7), and day and boarding girls into Year 9. From September 2012, we are also offering a flexi-boarding option for Year 7 and 8 boys.
Every school has a slightly different admissions process. At Worth, we recommend that you start your research two years prior to the proposed enrolment date. Should you wish to apply for Year 7 or Year 9 for 2013 or 2014 entry, you will need to register your son or daughter: click to download the Registration Form.
The Admissions and Registration Process
The admissions process varies slightly depending on which academic year your son or daughter will be joining Worth. The following steps are normally taken:
