Student Applications

Please complete the Student Application Form via the portal link below. There is a non-refundable application fee of £50 which can be paid online by bank transfer – details are included on the application portal. To access the Student Application portal please follow this link:

As part of the application process, you will need to upload a copy of the following documents:

· Student’s passport;
· Past school reports / academic history;
· Photo of the student;
· Student’s birth certificate;
· Parent’(s’) passport(s);
· Recent school reports

The application process is meant to be a collaborative effort to be completed partly by the student and partly by the parent(s). Please take your time completing the application to ensure that it is accurate and that it contains everything you wish for us to know about your son/daughter. If you need to pause and return to your application later, you can do so by logging into the portal with your username and password. If you encounter any issues, please contact the Admission and Recruitment Manager, Victoria Lewin.

Once the completed application has been received by us, it will be reviewed; if the decision is made to proceed with the application, the student and their parent(s) will be invited to attend an initial online interview with the Admissions & Recruitment Manager and a member of the School Management Committee.

Depending on the outcome of this interview, a second online meeting will be arranged with a staff member and two current students to meet with the student applicant and gather more information on their interests and their reasons for applying to the school. This is an opportunity for the student applicant to ask questions of the current students about their life at Brockwood and the different study programmes they have chosen.

Based on the prospective student’s application and the feedback from both interviews, the school will decide whether to offer a place. The parent(s) and the student applicant will be informed accordingly.

Bursaries

At Brockwood, we wish to ensure that young people throughout the world are able to participate in the unique educational experience offered here. We recognise the importance of providing bursary assistance to deserving students who otherwise would be unable to attend the school and we are committed to finding annual funds for this purpose. Brockwood offers bursaries on a discretionary basis and The School Management Committee is responsible for these decisions. Our Bursary Policy provides a detailed explanation of our criteria for awarding funds. Please note that we do not issue the Bursary Application Pack until the student has accepted a place to enrol.

Visa Information

From 1st January 2021, all international, EU, EEA and Swiss citizens (except Irish nationals) need to apply for a visa to study at Brockwood Park School.
The visa application is a very simple process and the Recruitment Manager will be on hand to guide you through it.

After being offered a place to study at Brockwood Park School, the fee deposit is due. The Recruitment Manager will also ensure that colour scans of the student’s passport, parents’ passports, a translated copy of the student’s birth certificate and a Parental Permission form are on file with the school and that other necessary paperwork has been completed and returned to the school.

Students with an international passport (outside of the UK, EU, EEA and Switzerland) must pay the first years’ fees in full before the visa process can begin, to ensure that certain financial requirements are met in order for the visa to be granted. Students with a UK, EU, EEA or Swiss passport do not need to pay the first years’ fees in full before the visa process can begin.

Once everything is in place – and where applicable, the fees have been paid – the school will issue a Certificate of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) to confirm that the student has a genuine offer of a place to study at Brockwood Park. The family then uses this certificate to apply for either a T4 Child Student visa (for ages 4-17) or a T4 Student visa (for ages 18+).

There is a cost associated with applying for a visa and the amount you pay depends upon the type of visa you are applying for. As of October2032, the costs are £490 to apply for a Child Student or Student visa from outside the UK, or to extend or switch to a Child Student or Student visa from inside the UK.

Please note that you will also be asked to pay the Immigration Health Surcharge (IHS) at the point of applying for the visa. The cost for the IHS is due to increase to £776 per year of study and is payable upfront at the point of applying for the visa.

The IHS was set up in 2015 and anyone applying for temporary leave to enter or remain in the UK for longer than 6 months must pay an IHS to the Home Office at the point of applying for their visa. Income raised from the IHS goes to general UK government funds and is then distributed to devolved health administrations under the Barnett formula. It has raised over £1.5 billion since it was introduced.

In simple terms it means that your child will be eligible to receive free medical care from the National Health Service (NHS) in the UK during their time at Brockwood Park School.

For more information on what this is and how much it costs, please refer to this page of the UK Government website. Please note that these amounts are paid by the family directly to UK Visas & Immigration and are separate to any monies paid to the School. We would always recommend that you apply for a visa with your child that spans the duration of their studies at Brockwood Park.

When applying for a Child Student or Student visa from outside the UK, you can expect to get a decision within 1-3 weeks; when applying from inside the UK, you can expect to get a decision within 1-8 weeks.

We would expect to begin the visa process 3-6 months prior to the student’s enrolment date.

Please note that Brockwood Park School is not included on the UK government’s list of sponsors because our sponsorship is held under the charity name of the Krishnamurti Foundation Trust Ltd., and this can be found on the list of sponsors. The Krishnamurti Foundation Trust Ltd. has been an A-Rated Sponsor of international students, charity workers and staff since the UK Home Office introduced the points based system in January 2009.
