Age placement for Secondary School is according to the above protocol.
Years 7-9 students are expected to have sufficient competency in English in order to benefit from our academic programmes. Should we have some concern regarding an applicant’s ability to access the curriculum, we test their level of English, and if necessary the school will consider options which would allow the child to receive additional English language support within the school.
Throughout Years 10-13 we offer challenging academic programmes geared towards students who are planning to go on to college or university in Morocco, U.K., Europe, North America and other areas of the world. At this level, students must have a high degree of competency in English.
All students applying to Secondary School must provide school records for the previous two academic years and/or other documentation regarding their level of English language proficiency.
They will also be asked to take an academic assessment test. Provided academic ability is evidenced, the school will consider options which would allow the child to receive additional English language support within the school.
Interview with the Head of School
Children applying for admission to Years 7-9 as well as Years 10-13 are required to have a formal interview, with at least one of the child’s parents/guardians present.
As part of the interview process children will be required to sit a formal entrance test/examination. In reviewing a child’s eligibility we look at his/her school records in instances in which we have some questions regarding the applicant’s ability to access the curriculum.
With the advanced level of the education program in Years 10-13 it may be deemed that the child may not enter the school if it is felt that their English language skills will make it impossible to access the exams that would follow.
BASM reserves the right to contact the applicant’s previous school prior to acceptance.
Our classes from Years 7 to 11 are limited to 20 pupils per class. The maximum Year 12 & 13 class size will be 15. When these numbers are reached a waiting list system will apply.
