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.

Results in these examinations

Our Class of 2021 cohort have achieved remarkable results, the best in LIS’s IB Diploma history. The results were outstanding, with 97.6% of students gaining the full Diploma. However, so many of our students not only achieved excellent grades, but outperformed expectations and should be extremely proud of themselves. Furthermore, all students who applied for the HZB (Hochschulzugangsberechtigung) were successful, and all students made their UCAS (Universities & Colleges Admissions Service) offers, too. This represents a truly outstanding achievement. See details here: https://www.lis.school/school-sections/secondary-school/exam-results-2021.html
