Admissions

Admission Policy

Every pupil wishing to enter the school is tested. Those wishing to be admitted to Grade Naught and One have special tests to assess their readiness and competency, particularly in English. The more senior pupils are tested on work they should be familiar with for that particular grade. As the medium of instruction is English, it is vital that all newcomers can speak and understand English. The results of these tests are not negotiable. Parents, upon acceptance of their child into the school, are required to sign a contract with the school undertaking to abide by ALL rules and regulations of the school.
