In Primary School, class teachers assess new students. Applicants may also be assessed by the Learning Support of ESL department if further information is required. Actual placement of the child will be dependent on the age of the child, last grade completed and the results of the placement exam.
In Secondary School, students will be assessed in English and Maths and placed in year groups appropriate for their age and previous education. Students will not normally be accepted into year groups more than one year outside the year appropriate for their chronological age.
