|Admission and School Fees|
When visiting the School an appointment will be made, for parents and their children, to meet with the Headmaster, Mr Richard Wijeratne, in both the Junior and Senior Schools. Parents with children going into the Senior School will also meet with the Director of Studies, Mr Al Castle, Head of Pastoral Care, Mrs Pat Baker and if relevant Head of Sixth Form, Mrs Maria Wickman.
In order to secure a place, a Registration form must be completed and the Registration Fee paid for each child.
Upon registering a child the parents enter into a contract with the School, undertaking to comply with the ethos and standards that exist within the School.
Once the registration process is completed, each child entering into either Year 7, Year 8, Year 9 or Year 10 will be required to sit an exam in English, Mathematics and Spanish. This exam is purely to ascertain the academic level of the child in these subjects.
For students entering 6th Form the minimum requirement under the British Education System is:
A minimum of 5 GCSEs grade C or above including Mathematics and English. Some subjects will require a minimum of grade B to continue to AS level.
Under the Spanish System the minimum requirement is:
Graduado plus evidence of ability to study, at depth, in English
Other Educational Systems:
The equivalent of the above, with official translation of qualifications if they are not in English.
Should an appropriate place be unavailable, it is possible to place the child on a waiting list. This will require the registration fee.
The registration fee will be refunded when the school or parent wishes to remove a child from the waiting list. However, should a place be offered, and subsequently declined the registration fee will be withheld.
All students are covered by the school's accident insurance.
