Admissions

Calendar

The school year starts in February and finishes in December.

Applications for students will be accepted at any time and processed as soon as possible.

Placement

Kindergarten Placement

Pre-K: Children who will be 2 years of age on or before June 30 of the year registered may be admitted in Pre-K.

K1: Children who will be 3 years of age on or before June 30 may be admitted in K1.

K2: Children who will be 4 years of age on or before June 30 may be admitted in K2.

K3: Children who will be 5 years of age on or before June 30 may be admitted in K3.

Before being admitted in Kindergarten, K2 and K3 candidates are interviewed by our educational psychologist from the Learning Centre. Parents will be interviewed by the Head of Kindergarten.

Primary Placement

Students who will be 6 years of age on or before June 30 of the year registered may be admitted to 1st Year. The appropriate ages for higher grades are: Year 2 – 7; Year 3 – 8; Year 4 – 9; Year 5 – 10; Year 6 – 11.

Candidates will be tested in the three main areas: English, Spanish and Maths. Their parents will be interviewed by the Head of Primary.

The candidate’s academic and disciplinary record will also be taken into consideration.

Secondary Placement

Students will normally be admitted on the basis of a satisfactory performance in the common entrance examination.

All candidates to Secondary will sit for written tests in Spanish, English Language and Mathematics.

Entry to ES 6 will be possible if the candidate has completed the first year of the IB programme and the combination of subjects presented by the candidate matches the profile of St George’s College North. Likewise, admission will depend on his/her previous school’s recommendation and an interview with the Heads of school.

The main requirements for entry are that the student will be capable of pursuing a rigorous academic programme, that the student will benefit from and contribute towards the sporting and cultural activities offered by the school, and that the student’s presence will enrich the atmosphere of the school.

It will be expected that candidates taking subjects at IB level will normally have studied them at IGCSE and obtained a satisfactory grade. However, failure to do this does not automatically exclude any student from entering the full IB diploma programme. A good performance in the IB Diploma examination has international credibility and acceptability amongst the private national and international universities.

The programme and syllabus are fully bilingual and every student has to take both the National and International Baccalaureate at the same time.
