Meeting with the Head of Admissions

The Head of Admissions will give the family all the relevant information on the school's philosophy, academic, sports, arts programmes and other activities, as well as a tour of the school, concentrating on the sections of the school which are of most importance to the family of the prospective student. These meetings are scheduled Monday through Friday, to give the family a chance to see how the school operates on a typical day.

Admissions evaluation

All students will be called for an evaluation. Depending on the Year level, this will consist of an English and a Mathematics test, and an interview, and are undertaken by the Heads of Early, Primary or Secondary Years. The purpose of this is to get to know the student and evaluate the correct placement. For non-native speakers, the school must be sure that the student has enough knowledge of English to follow the work being done in class.
