Entry evaluation for students

Entry exam

Brief description of entry evaluation required

Children entering from Years 1 – 6 will be asked to attend an informal interview with one of the teachers of the school who will assess the child’s academic level and level of English. Pupils in Years 7 - 13 will be asked to sit entrance examinations.

Entrance examinations vary according to the age of the pupil. An interview prior to acceptance is mandatory and reports from previous schools (if any) are required.

Do students practice religion at the school? What religion?

Religion is an optional subject at I.S.M. in which Christian morals and doctrine are taught. In Reception and Year 1 Christian stories are told but most of the emphasis is on correct behaviour, the reasons for the same and respect for others in one’s society and environment. From Year 2 up there is more attention to Catholic doctrine, especially in Year 4 when pupils are prepared for First Communion. In Secondary, pupils can be prepared for Confirmation. There is a minimal charge for RE classes to pay for the services of the priests and use of the local parish church. Pupils who do not attend RE lessons have Citizenship as the alternative and parents are informed in the February and June reports of the topics covered.
