Year Group Equivalence

We are a British curriculum school and as such follow a 13 year system. Most other curricula follow a 12 year system. The table below indicates the equivalent year group at The English College, where students are transferring from a 12 year system. Age will be determined as on the 31 August of the admission year. Students joining FS 1 must be 3 years old before the 31 August of the year of entry. For all other year groups, our Admissions Policy also takes into consideration the applicant’s current year/grade.
