Francoise Armstrong

Assistant Head (International), and Director of Boarding

Francoise Armstrong will conduct the Admissions Assessment which involves a video call with the child and their parents or guardians to establish whether we are the right fit for the child, and how best we can support their academic and extra-curricular growth – tailoring their learning experience to the child’s needs, skills and aspirations.

When to join?

  • International students join Claremont from age 10 with many staying with us until the Sixth Form. 
  • Traditional entry points are in Year 7, 8, 9 and 10 (for GCSE) and Year 12 (for A Level).
  • The ‘ Year 11 Access’ course is an exclusive 3- year academic study programme that prepares students for A levels and entry to universities.  It is designed specifically for international students who would benefit from a foundation year of study prior to Sixth Form,  as it has a greater emphasis on developing English language skills.

Entry is normally in September but students will be considered for alternative start dates, subject to availability of spaces. If English is not their first language, students are expected to have a minimum level of English to cope with the demands of the curriculum.

We recommend the following level of English for essay-based A Level subjects: IELTS 6.
