Entry evaluation for students

Assessment and interview

Brief description of entry evaluation required

The interview is designed to find out from the student what they enjoy about school and what they are expecting at HIS: it is also designed to find out from parents why they wish their child to receive an international education. It is also a final opportunity for parent or student questions to be answered.

The admission assessments have two main purposes:

Assessment of the students previous learning and understanding, if appropriate, and Identification of any learning and/or language support needs the student might have.

All assessments are age-appropriate and are designed to be straightforward and non-stressful: we want the students to be able to show what they are capable of. For younger students the assessments are primarily observational or one-on-one with a teacher, whilst for older students there will also be short written assessments of numeracy and literacy.

Deadline for registration (new academic year)

In line with the needs of families to move globally and locally at all time of the year, HIS accepts applications all year round.
