PROCEDURE – The school accepts foreign students of all nationalities and religions. Admission to all classes is subject to availability of space.
Admission to KG 1 and KG 2 is not dependent upon a test. However, a personal interview with the parent and the child might be invited on occasion.
The qualifying age for students at different levels of Kindergarten, as specified by the Ministry of Education is :
KG 1 : must have attained the age of 3 years by 21st October
KG 2 : must have attained the age of 4 years by 25th October
KG 3 : must have attained the age of 5 years by 5th November
(Subject to change every year)
All children seeking admission must be toilet trained. The minimum academic expectation for a KG 2 child is an awareness of phonic sounds in the English language and number knowledge of 1-50.
Children seeking admission in KG 3 – Grade 3 are required to possess English Language and Mathematics skills that correspond to international learning standards.
Any medical reports or allergy information must be shared with the school at the time of registration.
Students applying for admission to classes in KG3 – Grade 8 are required to pass a placement test in English and Mathematics. Based on the assessment of the placement test, an interview may also be required. The merit of the students is the sole criterion for admission. Dates for entrance tests are set by appointments.
Admissions to the IGCSE programme in Grade 9 require students to qualify in placement tests in English, Mathematics and Science. Generally, new admissions are not taken in Grade 10.
Admission to the ‘A’ Levels programme requires the student to have passed the IGCSE examination (or its equivalent from a recognised examination board) in that subject (especially for Mathematics and the Sciences) with reasonable grades. Unless a student seeking admission to the ‘A’ Level programme has secured a ‘C’ grade or above in a particular subject, he/she is asked to write a placement test in that particular subject. The objective of the placement test is to ensure that the student possesses knowledge of at least the basic concepts that make up the core content of the IGCSE syllabus in the subject. Scholarships are awarded to deserving students based on a well-defined formula of their grade achievements at the IGCSE or its equivalent level.
