Boys and girls join Worth either at age 11+ (Year 7), at 13+ (Year 9), or at 16+ (Year 12). A few places are offered for admission at age 12+ (Year 8) or at 14+ (Year 10). The admissions processes vary according to age and are detailed on the relevant links on the 'Process' page.

Admissions at all ages are conditional on the successful completion of Worth's own assessment tests, current school references and interviews. Those intending to join Worth are expected to support and be comfortable with our Catholic and Benedictine foundation and character but no applicant will be treated less favourably during the application process or during assessment on the grounds of their skin colour, race, nationality or ethnic or national origin, gender, religious faith, disability, orientation, or socio-economic group.
