Entry evaluation for students

Interview

Brief description of entry evaluation required

The interview is aimed at establishing a conversation with parents and students to
evaluate if and how the school will benefit the candidate´s educational experience. In preschool, the interview includes play activities and dialogue.
As the student progresses in Primary the importance of the mastery of English literacy and numeracy becomes apparent. The interview will still be looking at acquired skills, prior knowledge but also at the student’s language profile and will include short written tasks.

Deadline for registration (new academic year)

In exceptional circumstances and provided there are vacancies, the school will accept applications for admissions throughout the school year and will place students for start dates at the beginning of a term in either September or January.

Students can join after academic year begins

Occasionally, mid-term placements are accommodated, but only if there is a commitment from the student to continue for the remainder of the term and for the duration of the following term and after consultation with the Supreme
Education Council.
