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 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.
  • We will then 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.
  • Please find a link below to our own privacy and data protection policy.

    Padworth College is a small co-educational international boarding school for students aged 14-19 providing individual attention in small classes.
    The College is an accredited NCUK Delivery Partner for the NCUK International Foundation Year (IFY). The NCUK International Foundation Year (IFY) is a modular programme that prepares international students for first-year entry to undergraduate degree courses. Students study a combination of modules that fit in with their degree destination with four pathways available: Business, Engineering, Humanities and Science.

    NCUK programmes are widely recognised around the globe, with many students progressing to the best universities in the UK, the US, Australia and the rest of the world. Successful completion of the IFY leads to guaranteed entry to one of the 33 NCUK Partner Universities, including the University of Manchester, University of Exeter, University of Bristol and a number of other Russell Group universities. The minimum grades required in order to be eligible for the NCUK guarantee are based on results in subject modules and English for Academic Purposes.

    Current Foundation course fees are £10,500 per term for 2020/21, £31,500 for a full academic Year.
