Application Procedure

Follow the checklist in the system

Fully completed applications will be reviewed by the Leadership Team and relevant teachers

We value all children not only those who are academically strong. We serve the expatriate community, as such English language proficiency is factor for admissions not a requirement. We admit students only when we have the support and resources to make them successful – we have a duty of care. Admissions of new students with specific learning requirements depends on the language and learning make up of the current cohort. Assessments are only given when deemed necessary, at our discretion and when a seat has been identified. There is a non-refundable processing fee for each application, which is valid for one academic year.

School Fees

Our tuition & fees are fair and transparent. We also offer a Corporate Contribution Program (CCP).
