BNO Passport Holder

We can take children as day pupils from 4 years of age if their parents have BNO passport status.

The children do not need student visas, they arrive at the border and are granted “Leave Outside The Rules” which allows them to stay in the country for 6 months.  If they are applying to settle in the UK, they need to apply in January 2021 and proof will be needed of this.

We cannot advise on the BNO status – families are asked to contact their local British Embassy for advice.

Apart from the usual school admissions process parents would need to show the evidence below for the child to attend the school:

  1. Parents Valid BNO status from the authorised British Consulate.
  2. Childs BNO dependent status in the UK ( usually at 6months stay)
  3. Within 6 months they would need to show the school a legal change in status that will enable the child to study in the school.
