Admissions Meetings

Our admissions meetings are designed to enable us to understand what your child needs to thrive, while you have the chance to get to know the school. To best meet and understand learner needs, our teachers will engage prospective students in a range of activities which are appropriate for their age and stage of development, in the older years ensuring the English language level is sufficient to meet the demands of the curriculum. Meetings in KG and Elementary take place in the classroom the student is likely to join after enrolment. Middle and High School students will spend some time 1:1 with a member of our iCan student support team.

Please note you must complete our Application Form before attending an admissions meeting.

Securing Your Child’s Place

Once you receive an offer, you have 10 days to complete registration and to pay the registration fee to secure your place. The registration fee is 30% of the tuition fee and is deductible from the first term’s school fees. You can read more about our school fees and our sibling discounts here.

Your Child’s First Day at School

The school fees should be paid for the term before the first day of school. Placement of our students in their new class is carried out by our senior team, considering each child’s strengths and abilities to match them with the best teacher for them. Before term begins you will be issued with a parent handbook and invited to familiarization events with your child. We look forward to welcoming you on your first day!
