Entry requirements into The Knox School
Entry to PEAK – Personalised ELICOS at Knox Program
The Knox School offers a full-time English Language Intensive Course for Overseas Students (ELICOS) which prepares students to join their mainstream classes with the required level of proficiency in English.

Students must achieve 70% or higher in the PEAK examinations to be eligible to commence mainstream courses, subject to their previous academic qualifications and timing of the academic year.
All PEAK students are expected to graduate from the language course within 20 weeks.
