ADMISSIONS

Welcome to JAS Admissions

We are delighted that you are considering JAS as the school for your child/children. We have split the application process into the relevant areas below to help guide you through the admissions process so that you know what to expect at each stage of your application. 

General Information

JAS accepts applications for the current and coming academic years with the following exceptions:

 

Year 10 and 11 is a two-year GCSE learning programme. Applications are only accepted for entry into Year 10 at the start of the Academic Year. 

 

Year 12 and 13 is a two-year A-level/BTEC learning programme. Applications are only accepted for entry into Year 12 at the start of the Academic Year. 

ADMISSIONS PROCESS

Please have your child/children's latest year-end and interim reports to hand, along with all of the supporting documents needed such as Passport/Visa and Emirates ID. FS1 applicants can upload a nursery report or a photograph in place of a school report.

 

Due to the volume of applications we receive, we endeavour to respond to you within five working days. 

Entrance assessments are required for all year groups outside of FS1 and typically involve reviewing your child/children's current reports/CAT-4 scores and for secondary students a two hour virtual assessment including separate English and Maths modules. Sixth form students are invited to participate in a virtual interview/guidance meeting.

Before completing the application form, please process the application fee of AED 500 via bank transfer. Once the payment has been processed, you can begin the application form. At the end of each form you will be required to upload a copy of your payment transfer, this is to ensure your payment is not lost and is allocated to the correct application. Once received you will be notified to confirm we have received your fee and application. You will then be added to our waitlist.

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 is most relevant to you.

If you are applying for more than one child you can start the process for your eldest child and add siblings once your first application is complete.

Second Step

When the application form and payment receipt have been submitted, you will receive notification from the Admissions Team that your child has been added to the waitlist or been moved to the evaluation stage.

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.

Final Step

When a child has successfully completed the evaluation, they will be either offered a place to study at JAS or added to our waitlist until the next space becomes available.
