ADMISSIONS

All prospective students are interviewed by the Principal, and sit a computerised test to determine their abilities in English and Mathematics, as well as their overall aptitude.

Students are invited to bring in an object, picture or photograph that they would like to talk about during the interview. The interviewer will refer to the student’s questionnaire so we can ensure that each student can follow their own interests at the school. The computerised testing, as well as the student’s current school report, will also be taken into consideration before offering a place.
