Entry evaluation for students

Evaluation

Brief description of entry evaluation required

If an applicant is considered suitable and LIS has available capacity, LIS offers an evaluation day, where possible, to get to know them first hand and allow them insight into LIS' environment and everyday routines. Where necessary, English and Mathematics are tested to assess students’ skill and grade level placement.

All staff involved in the evaluation day will subsequently give feedback on the performance and behaviour of the student. The final decision to accept or decline the application of a student rests with the Principal of the school section in conjunction with the Head of School.

External examinations or assessments available

IB Diploma, IGCSE
