Admissions

Admissions Policy

All candidates for entry to the School have to undertake the School’s levelling entrance examination and have an interview with the appropriate Heads of Section.

Preference is given to pupils with good academic potential. The school will look for evidence of good character and sound moral values. Every candidate is expected to make the best use of the academic; social; artistic and sports opportunities offered by the school, which will enrich and strengthen the candidate´s skills and weaknesses, respectively. Candidates are also expected to accept their responsibilities and observe the Official College Rulebook, thus setting a role model to both his/her peers and the school community.

There are no automatic admissions to St George’s College. However, priority will be given to children and grandchildren of Old Georgians and to those who have brothers or sisters already enrolled at the College. Similarly preference will be given to first language English speakers and students from the International Community.

At the transfer stage from Kindergarten to Prep and then to the Secondary priority is given to pupils already attending St George’s. However, attendance at the Kindergarten or Prep does not mean automatic entry to the following school section. EPB 6 students passing from Prep to the Secondary must take entrance levelling examinations to determine their appropriate academic setting. Their attitude is also evaluated and as with candidates they all have a personal interview with the Heads of the section.

The Head of each Section is responsible in consultation with the Headmaster for the admission of all new pupils to their section. Once the admission procedures have been satisfactorily completed, assignment to a given year will be made.
