How academic do I need to be to study at Capernwray?
Since its beginning, Capernwray Bible School has always focussed more on a person’s spiritual growth and relationship with the Lord Jesus than on passing tests, assignments or exams. Having said that, we are a Bible School, and there are a number of assignments to complete, books to read and lectures to listen to and process. Almost every student will be entered onto the ‘Foundations in Christian Living’ (Winter School) or ‘Principles in Christian Living’ (Spring School) courses, which lead to an NQF Level 3 qualification accredited by the Northern College of Further Education. Every student will need to come with the willingness to work hard at their studies, and most students who come with that attitude do succeed. Capernwray sets no specific entrance requirements to study with us, but if you are concerned about whether you’ll have the academic ability to succeed here, please raise those concerns when you apply, and we’ll contact you to discuss it. We do provide one-to-one assistance for students who request it and need help with their work.
