Year 8 Transfer Information 2016/17

Happy Year 8 Victoria College Girls

GL Examination Centre - Allocation Reached

We have now reached our allocation of candidates to sit the GL examinations at Victoria College in November 2016. We are therefore unable to accept any further applications for the 2016 GL examination. We are sorry for any disappointment this may cause. Parents who wish to register their child for the GL examination should contact their next choice of school/examination centre.
