The intake process follows various stages depending on the age of the pupil.
All Kindergarten children are admitted on the basis of an interview with the parents, subject to availability of places. We accept children over two years and six months who can use the toilet independently.
Children who apply for Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 are assessed informally. In cases where the child has attended school before, reports and samples of work are essential for the application and selection process.
All applicants for Years 3 to 6 of the Primary School and Years 7 to 10 of the Secondary School are formally examined in English and Mathematics. Greek-speaking pupils are also examined in Greek.
Applicants for ‘AS’ and ‘A’ Level courses are accepted on the basis of the results they have achieved at IGCSE/GCSE or ‘AS’ Level. Applicants with ‘AS’ levels applying for ‘A’ level courses may only do so if they are transferring credits from the same Examination Board. Applicants who do not have IGCSE/GCSE qualifications will take formal entrance tests.
Interviews with prospective pupils and their parents or guardians, as well as copies of recent reports from a recognised school and a reference letter from their current Head of School, form an integral part of the admissions process.
An Application Form must be completed after the initial enquiry. All Application Forms must be accompanied by all the relevant documents which are specified.
We follow the English National Curriculum, but pupils who come from the Greek or other education systems usually adapt well in our school. Where necessary, the school can provide extra support to facilitate the transition.
We believe that good communication between parents/guardians and the school (teachers, management and administration) is essential in order to meet the needs of the individual pupils and to ensure the smooth functioning of the entire school.
Means of communication between school and parents/guardians include:-
- Parent-Teacher Conferences
- Formal Reports
- Interim Reports (when requested by parents or teachers)
- Information meetings for transition years (Kindergarten to Reception, Year 2 to Year 3; Year 6 to Year 7; Year 9 to Year 10; Year 11 to Year 12)
- Formal and Informal Events
- The Homework Diary / Student Planner
- Appointments with individual parents
- Informal meetings with teachers
- The School’s Newsletter
- Letters, telephone calls and e-mail messages
- The school website
- The Bulletin Boards
- The Parents and Teachers Association (PTA)
