  • Date of Birth of Child
What will you receive if you complete this form
  • When we receive a completed form from you, we will email you to make sure we have fully understood what you want to know, if anything is unclear.
  • We will also offer you a free online consultation to better understand what you and your family are looking for from a UK education provider.
  • Then we will confirm that the request for information has come from a parent/guardian, not a child (under 16). If this is unclear from the information provided, we will separately email the respondent and ask for a return email copying in a parent/guardian, or ask for added confirmation of the age of the respondent. If necessary, we will then verify the identity of the parent/guardian with a separate email requesting confirmation of this relationship before any further information is sought from the respondent and before any data is shared with any 3rd party (requested school/university). Also, all ongoing communications will be copied to the parent.
  • Following this, we will email the right person within the faculty office of the chosen University or Boarding school admissions department, you want to make contact with, and copy you on the email, so you can see your request has been actioned.
  • The chosen University or Boarding school will then seek your permission (EU regulations, relating to EU data subjects) to send you the information you have requested and will make you aware of their own data protection policies.
  • If you have given permission for the Boarding School or University to contact you (EU regulations, relating to EU data subjects) we will ensure you get a reply from the University or School of interest.
  • We will then follow up with you to make sure your questions have been answered and you feel able to move forwards with your planning. 
  • We are happy to provide any further assistance we can offer at any stage of your application process to any UK educational institution featured on the site.

    For pupils whose first language is not English the school provides a professional and dedicated ‘English as an Additional Language’ (EAL) service for an additional charge. This is fully integrated into the weekly timetable. Upon arrival each pupil is assessed and an appropriate programme of EAL lessons recommended.
    The College offers GCSE’s, IGCSE’s, A Levels, IB, BTEC and the International Foundation Programme (IFP) qualifications.

    Ellesmere welcomes students with lots of interests and is not a school for narrow specialists. Alongside a strong academic focus, the College does pride itself on its sports provision and has outstanding sports facilities including; large external grounds for rugby, cricket and football, an on site 9 hole golf course, 4 indoor tennis courts and an indoor swimming pool. The College offers 7 different sports academies-tennis, swimming, shooting, football. cricket, rugby & golf.

    In November 2021 Ellesmere College was awarded the High Performance Learning World Class School Accreditation – one of only 39 schools worldwide to be awarded this accreditation.
    High Performance Learning (HPL) is an international movement delivering educational change, working with schools and teachers to provide a flexible learning framework, building cognitive competences and designed to achieve academic and lifetime success.

    Ellesmere employs the HPL approach through the whole school system – from Lower School to Sixth Form. It reflects what is already known about advanced thinking skills and learning behaviours, helping pupils to develop skills and attitudes like; confidence, agile thinking, perseverance and a greater awareness and concern for the broader issues in society. This is an holistic approach which aims to ensure pupils are fully prepared for academic, work & personal life challenges. For more information about HPL at Ellesmere-please follow this Link-


    Ellesmere College has been recognised as a Category DU (Dyslexia Unit) by The Council for the Registration of Schools Teaching Dyslexic Pupils (CReSTeD) which means the school has a designated Learning Support Unit or Centre providing specialist tuition on a small group or individual basis, according to need, which also includes dyspraxia, dyscalculia and other SEN needs. They identified the exceptional levels of work the Support for Learning Department undertakes to ensure teachers are well-informed about individuals with learning needs and that this information is used effectively to create a network of support, including individually-tailored teaching and a wide variety of academic support available outside of lesson time. They also applauded the way the school is “very dedicated to getting the best out of individuals” and remarking how “parents all commented about the improvements in their children’s confidence and happiness”.


    The College is situated in 160 acres of countryside in Central England, about 8 miles from the market town of Oswestry. It is about an hour away from Birmingham and Manchester international airports.
