Step 1: application form, registration fee AND REQUIRED DOCUMENTS.


The first step in achieving a place for your child at ICS is to:

You can submit these to us in the following ways:

Your child will then be placed on a waiting list and arrangements will be made for testing and interview. 

Required Documents

You will then be asked to submit a number of documents to us, as follows:

  • Photocopies of school records or transcripts for the two years immediately prior to this application.
  • Receipt of a confidential letter of recommendation from your child’s current Head of School or Principal, sent directly to our Admissions Manager. Please note that this often needs to be arranged well in advance of the testing date.
  • A photocopy of your child’s Birth Certificate or details pages of the passport*.
  • Two recent, passport-sized photographs of your child.

Step 2: Subject Testing & Interview

Your child will be tested in English and Mathematics. They may be interviewed by the Head of School and appropriate subjects and levels considered.

Following satisfactory testing, interview and the receipt of all required documents, your child will be offered a place in our school. You will then be asked to return the following:

Your child's place will be officially confirmed. We shall then issue:

  • An invoice for tuition and book fees.

Step 4: Starting at School

When you join the school, we will issue:

  • The Parents’ and Students’ Handbook.

Please NOTE

*The school cannot help with residence permission arrangements once the student is in Spain. Parents or guardians must obtain information from the Spanish Consulate or Embassy in their present country prior to entering Spain.

**The fee deposit is returnable when the student leaves the school on giving one term’s notice of departure in writing. Only when both the enrolment fee and deposit has been paid will a place be reserved for your child.
