Please return the completed forms together with the supporting documents detailed above to:
the Admissions Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Admissions Officer will confirm receipt of the application papers by email. Please note that the application process can only begin when we have received all the required documentation.
The documents will be reviewed. This process ordinarily takes only a few days. If there is space available, the offer of a place will be made in writing. When demand is high and limited space is available, fees will be due for the period between the acceptance of a place and the date the child starts school.
If a place is not available, the child's name will be placed on the waiting list for the respective class. The Admissions Officer will contact the family if and when a place becomes available. Applications will be retained for one calendar year.
Please note that the Head of School takes the final decision on acceptance.
