Application Process

Admissions Policy

The school accepts children without discrimination as to gender, race, religion or nationality, provided there are no reasons why the applicant cannot be educated in Egypt. After completing an application, families will be contacted by our Admissions Office to schedule their assessments and interviews.

The final decision on acceptance and placement is taken by the Director, based on advice from other members of the educational team, and information obtained with respect to:

  1. The applicant’s ability to meet the academic and ethical standards of the school,
  2. Reports and records from previous schools,
  3. The potential of the applicant to benefit from the programs and educational services available,
  4. The capacity of the school to meet the educational needs of the applicant.

Class Placement

Under normal circumstances students are assigned to classes on the basis of age. However, factors such as previous records, physical and emotional development and results of testing are also considered. The final decision rests with the Director.

A child may be accepted into a class as follows, if he/she is of age before 1st October in the year of entry. Only in exceptional circumstances will an applicant be placed outside his/her chronological age group.



If places are available, a student may be admitted to the School at any time during the school year.

Please note that the School reserves the right to deny admission to any applicant if the school cannot meet the applicant’s educational needs or to postpone admission, if a class is full. In this case, the applicant will be placed on a Waiting List.

Registration Period

The School offers rolling admissions throughout the entire year, where space is available. We are always delighted to meet with parents and show them around the school.

Pupils applying for entry into Nursery will be contacted after their application is received to set up a parent/child interview with an Early Years Practitioner. Please allow 45 minutes for your interview.


In general, it is expected that students will progress steadily through the school and move up to the next class at the appropriate time. If a student is not coping academically ,or has not the maturity to deal confidently with the course content of the next class, then the student may be asked to repeat the year or find a more suitable alternative. Any concerns in this area will be raised at least six months before the end of the school year.
