Entry evaluation for students

Test, meeting with the principal

Brief description of entry evaluation required

All children are invited to the school. Each child meets with the Principal and he looks at the child, their relationships with parents and general attitude and behavior. If available he will also review any past school reports. The child will then take a small entrance test in order to determine their ability within each grade group.

Early years: Children of this age often do not have any prior learning records. Decisions are not made using entrance tests. All children must be toilet trained on entry to school.

Primary and Secondary: Children entering the school from Grade One will be required to submit an academic report from the previous school year. Placement tests are conducted after meeting the Principal to ensure learning needs can be met.
