How soon after submitting our application form will we hear from you?

You can generally expect to hear from us within 2 weeks after submitting your application.

 

Is it necessary to come for a visit? Does my child need to attend the visit?

It is always good to visit the school for yourself, but it is not necessary. The admission process can be completed at distance, in particular when families are based overseas.

Your child does not need to attend the visit. However sometimes if we are unsure of the grade the child should join, we may ask that the child attend classes for a day to help us assess their level and appropriate grade.

 

What happens during a visit?

Each family is unique, so each visit is as well.  We generally start our visits with a discussion which helps us understand what your expectations are of the school, what support your child(ren) may need (such as French as a foreign language lessons for non-native French speakers). During this discussion we will also explain the curriculum and discuss what grade your child would enter school. We usually conclude visits by a tour of the campus which provides an opportunity to see our classrooms and facilities and meet our staff.

 

By when do we need to pay fees?

 

Tuition fees are billed in advance of each trimester. You may pay annually (receiving a 3% discount), quarterly (31st July, 31st December, 31st March), or monthly (incurring a 3% surcharge). See further information in our Fees section.

 

Are school meals included in the school fees?

No, meals are charged separately. Older children may also bring their own home-prepared lunch into school to eat in the school cafeteria.

 

Are extracurricular activities, visits and trips included in the school fees?

Mandatory extra activities (such as trips for all students) are charged in a single fee in addition to the tuition fee. This fee will vary depending on the child’s year of study. This is set out in the Fees information provided in the Fees section. Some extracurricular activities and other additional activities such as private tuition incur additional fees.

 

Why isn’t there just one single fee for everything?

Your child is unique, and so your child’s needs are different to every other child in our school. This may be related to the curriculum followed, the extracurricular activities and sports pursued, or the language needs. And so this means that these offerings is charged individually - a bespoke educational package designed for your child, without the extras that they don’t require.
