Assessment tests

Our assessment tests are carried out by our trained education team. Our team works with students to make sure that our curriculum meets each child’s needs and abilities. As an international school, we do not discriminate based on nationality, ethnicity, gender or any other quantifying personal characteristic.

Doing well in an assessment test does not guarantee a placement in the school. Places are offered based on assessment test performance, former school reports and availability of places.

We have an allocated number of places available for students with additional needs. Please inform us of your child’s requirements when making your application so your child’s assessment test can be fitted to their needs.

Preference

Preference will be given to siblings.
