The application is not completed until the parents have received an acknowledgement of the application and the Application Fee has been duly paid. If you do not receive the acknowledgement email, please contact the Admissions Office. Please note that the acknowledgement of application is not a guarantee of assessment or offer of a place in the School.

03

Please note that parents may apply for a place two years in advance of when they want their child to start at the School and the application is valid only for the school year the student will first enter (August to June).



Admissions Assessments
and Interview

01

English is the only inclusive language common to pupils and therefore is the language of instruction. As such, pupils are expected to have a working knowledge of English on entry to the School. Applicants may be invited to sit assessments subject to the availability of places and will be interviewed by one of the senior teachers.

02

The assessments might include: an interview; English, Mathematics and Non-verbal Reasoning tests for Year 2 and above. For Early Years (Pre-Nursery, Nursery and Reception) and Year 1 pupils, assessments will be less formal, but equally rigorous.



03

Parents should ensure their child’s passport and original bank pay-in slip for the Assessment Fee is brought to the assessment session.

Enrolment

01

Subsequent to the assessment and interview, applicants will be informed the result within 1 week.

02

In order to accept the offer of a place, parents should complete and return the Acceptance Letter within 10 working days to the School. Failure to do so may result in the place being offered to another pupil.

03

Induction materials will also be sent out which will provide details of starting dates, class placement and uniform purchase.
