The admission process is as follows:
- Complete the admission form and return it to the Admission Office with all the relevant documents. Failure to do so will result in your child's application not being processed.
- For overseas applications, please email the filled out form together with all the requirements to email@example.com.
- Those applicants who do meet our entry requirements will be placed on hold until a suitable opportunity arises for them to move to the 2nd stage of the assessment process. Applicants who are invited to attend a formal assessment will be charged QR300 (non-refundable). The results of these assessments are the property of the school and places will be allocated at the discretion of the Principal.
- When a place is offered, a letter of acceptance will be prepared. Parents will have 7 days to settle the payments required or the place will be lost. In the event that the entrance standard has not been met, the child may (at the school's discretion) be invited to do the test again at a cost of QR100. The school will guide the parents about where improvements need to be made in order to improve the chances of a positive outcome the next time.
- Pre-School, Reception, Years 1 and 2 will be assessed by Head or Deputy Head of Primary. The focus of the assessment will be the children's communication and social skills.
- Years 3 and 4 will be assessed using Progress in English (PiE) and Progress in Mathematics (PiM) tests.
- Years 5 to 10 will be assessed using the digital Cognitive Abilities Test (CAT).
- Applicants seeking entry into Year 12 for the IB Diploma Programme will be subject to meeting our minimum entry requirements of 5 I/GCSEs with grades between A* to C. Copies of the applicant's predicted grades or IGCSE results will have to be provided so that they can be reviewed by the IB Coordinator before being offered a provisional place. Applicants who come from a system different from I/GCSE will be assessed by the IB Coordinator.
- Entry into the school will normally be allowed only at the beginning of a term. If a child is enrolled after the beginning of a school term, a full term's tuition fee will be required regardless of when the admission occurs.
