What the school says...

Our Lady of Sion offers a complete education from Nursery through to Sixth-Form in a caring family community. The school has been providing education since 1862, and is proud of its traditions of all-round excellence; the school's public examination results are always well above the national average. Although pupil's academic achievement is important, their personal development is regarded as equally valued, and each child is encouraged to fulfil their potential in every field. Class sizes are always small, allowing the school's team of well qualified and highly-dedicated teachers to get to know each child individually and so encourage them to achieve their best.
Admission to the Senior School is on a selective basis, and is offered on attainment of acceptable results in written examinations in English, Mathematics, Reasoning and French, parent and pupil interview with the Headmaster and satisfactory references from previous schools. In the Sixth Form, admission for all pupils, both internal and external, is dependent upon GCSE results and satisfactory school reports. Admission to the Junior School , for entry to Reception to Year 2, is offered at the discretion of the Deputy Head, following a parent and pupil interview. Pupils entering Years 3 6 will be tested in English, Mathematics and Reasoning in addition to the above.

Independent schools frequently offer IGCSEs or other qualifications alongside or as an alternative to GCSE. The DfE does not record performance data for these exams so independent school GCSE data is frequently misleading; parents should check the results with the schools.
