|Brief description of entry evaluation required||
There are no academic requirements for acceptance into KG 1, KG 2 and Grade 1 (four to six years of age). Prospective students at these levels are interviewed; they must be toilet-trained and able to speak and follow simple instructions.
All other prospective students take diagnostic tests in core subjects. These tests help to determine if the student has attained the minimum expected standard for each subject. The school then makes final placement decisions but can resort to the various strategies at its disposal to help bring a student to the required level. For example, there is the option of attending extra lessons or intensive classes in a subject. Special academic support is taken very seriously by the school.
