On Wednesday 14 October the College held a dedicated Sixth Form Open Evening for prospective Sixth Formers who are interested in September 2021 entry to the college.

The evening included a presentation by the Headmaster, Ed Hester and Head of Sixth Form, Ben Collie, regarding key events and dates in the Sixth Form application process, A-level and BTEC subject information and general information on the Sixth Form experience at Princethorpe.

Year 6 taster experiences- November 2020

In the light of Saturday’s announcement about the forthcoming national lockdown,  sadly we will not be in a position to go ahead with our planned Year 6 Taster Experiences in school on Saturday 7 and 14 November.  We are really disappointed not to be able to welcome the children to the College, but we hope families will understand the situation.

Entrance Exams for September 2021 entry to the College take place on Saturday 23 January 2020. If you are considering Princethorpe as a senior school for your child, in order for us to progress their application you need to register for the exams and complete any bursary or scholarship applications by the deadline of Friday 4 December please. This will enable us to continue with the admissions process on your behalf, including seeking references from your child’s junior school, these references are reviewed by the admissions panel alongside the results of the exams.

We will be hosting a Virtual Admissions Q & A Session on Monday 16 November from 6.30pm to 7.30pm, where the Headmaster and the Admissions Team will answer any last questions about the admissions process and entry to the College in September 2021.
