ADMISSIONS PROCEDURE

ADMISSIONS CRITERIA

  1. Age:  Students must be at least 10 years old before the resumption date.
  2. Class:  Pupils must have completed at least Primary five (5) before they can be considered for admission.

  4. Independence:  Pupils must be able to wash their own clothes, look after themselves and keep their belongings safe, clean and tidy.
  5. Health:  As a fully residential, boarding school, pupils are required to be in a good state of health in order to be able to cope with the demands and requirements of living with minimal support in a boarding school.  Therefore, pupils who have conditions which require such special care and attention for which we may not have the facilities or the skills with which to look after them satisfactorily may not be admitted.  Failure to declare such health conditions prior to admission being offered may lead to withdrawal of the admission offer at any point in the academic year.
