Admissions Criterion

INTRODUCTION

The school has four sections, which are: a. Kindergarten (KG), Primary, Secondary and High. Children aged four are admitted in KG1. All children seeking admission in any grade are required to appear in an entry test exam that is held by the school’s admission committee. The schedule is announced in time so that the parents can make arrangement for their presence in the school with their children. The entry test is designed based on the concept the candidate seeking admission in a grade would have acquired the skills of the previous grade level. The test contains basic skills of the previous grade and the admission committee (AC) expects that the candidate will acquire 60% passing score. The qualified candidates are then interviewed by the AC members to ensure that the passing grade aligns with the knowledge of the candidate.

Candidate who succeed in the admission process are offered admission and he or she is provided with all the necessary options and documentation checklist that is required for further process. The candidate may accept or reject the admission offer based on their situation. The qualified student can request for a seat in the school bus. The school bus does not always have the required seat, therefore denial of the request should be expected.

Sample of the admission test can be acquired from the Head of the AC on request.

Parents and pupils requesting a place at the school are offered an initial interview, brief assessment and guided tour of the school at the first available appointment.
