Our policy throughout the admissions process is to allocate the appropriate placement for the candidate so that he/she may benefit fully from the education we offer.

The procedure for admission to the school varies according to the age of the candidate:

Infant Department

Nursery & Reception (age 3 & 4)

In September of the calendar year when children reach the age of three or four (i.e. up to December 31st) they join Nursery or Reception Class. In order to do so, parents must complete and return the official application form to be requested from the school. An appointment will be then made for parents to visit the school and meet the admissions officer. We recommend applying early as places are limited. Children applying for Nursery and Reception places are not required to have any prior knowledge of English.

The Admissions Officer will inform all parents about the availability of places when the admissions procedure commences each year.
