Sixth form students are invited to participate in a virtual interview/guidance meeting.

Here is a brief step-by-step guide as to how our application process works:

First Step

Process the application fee and then choose the application form that applies to your child.

If you are applying
 for more than one child,  you will need to complete one application form for each child.

Second Step

When the application form and payment receipt have been submitted, you will receive notification from our Accounts Team. Your child will then be added to our waiting list or moved to the evaluation stage depending on availability.

Third Step

Once a place has become available for your child, we will contact you to arrange an evaluation.  

If applying for secondary, you will be welcomed to sit an entrance exam.

Fourth Step

Once your child has completed the assessment process, the Admissions Team will notify you of the next steps.
