Our September 1st cut-off date and age placement policy reflects what we believe to be the most appropriate classification for the social, emotional and academic well-being of children attending the school.
Placement in all years is strictly determined by age as of September 1st in the academic year of entry as follows:
Immersion in the English Language is usually sufficient for children to quickly develop proficient English language skills. However, it is recognised that extra support may be needed for children entering primary school with little English. In year groups 1 to 6 there is an assistant teacher working in each class with additional English language support provided where necessary.
Interview with the Head of School
Children applying for admission to Years 1-6 are required to have a meeting with the Head of School. In reviewing a child’s eligibility we look at current/prior school records. If the student cannot provide previous school records a formal interview is required to assess their ability to access the curriculum. As part of the interview process children wishing to enter Year 5 or 6 will be required to sit a formal entrance test.
Our classes are limited to 20 pupils from Year 1 to Year 6. When these numbers are reached a waiting list system will apply.
