- Submission of satisfactory recent school reports and any examination results

We are looking for evidence of effort, achievement and good behaviour.

The purpose of the interview is to allow us to find out what kind of person you are and where your strengths and interests lie.

The interview is also an opportunity for you to ask questions about the courses and/or the College.
