We aim to make the admissions process as simple as possible with
5 easy steps:
- Attend a School Open Day or arrange a visit.
- Submit an online Application Form to the Admissions Office with one recent photo of the applicant and a copy of their passport.
- The school will then arrange a diagnostic assessment in English and maths for each applicant.
- A copy of the applicant's previous or current school records are requested.
- The school will arrange an interview (if the applicant has not already visited the school) and give a decision on acceptance.
Study Abroad Program
If you are already a SABIS student and want to come to the UK for a term abroad, please use the Study Abroad Program Application Form stating clearly which term you wish to attend.
Interested families are encouraged to visit the school by appointment. This gives the prospective family the opportunity to take in the beautiful surroundings, view the facilities and talk with our admissions staff.
You can book on a School Open Day or arrange a personal visit at your convenience.
Appointments can be made through the Admissions Office at +44 (0) 1225 891841 or E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications are accepted throughout the year. To initiate the admissions process, please complete an Application Form.
Once an application form has been received, the Admissions Office will arrange for the appropriate diagnostic assessment. Prospective students sit diagnostic assessments in order for the school to identify the student’s level of prerequisite knowledge. Placement in a grade level/year is established based upon results of the diagnostic assessments.
Diagnostic assessments are arranged at various times in the application process and typically take place on campus; however, arrangements can also be made for alternative site testing as needed.
School Records and Recommendations
The school requests that parents and legal guardians of all applicants authorise the release of school records including transcripts, test results and any psychological/neurological evaluations from the previous two academic years.
If the applicant is unable to visit the school, an interview will be arranged over the Internet with the School Director in order to explore the applicant’s interests and English language ability. This is also the chance for applicants to ask any questions about Ashwicke Hall School.
Decision on Applicants
Admission decisions are made after careful evaluation in order to determine the suitability of Ashwicke Hall School and its programme of study for each applicant. The school will take into consideration the diagnostics assessment, previous school records, including transcripts and recommendations, and any face-to-face or online interaction with the applicant. Criteria for evaluation include motivation, social and emotional development, and the ability of the school to meet the needs of the candidate.
A place will be reserved for the applicant at the appropriate entry level subject to the applicant satisfying the school’s entrance requirements and space available in that level. Placement is determined by the student’s performance not necessarily age; students may be placed with others older or younger than themselves, but maintaining a maximum of 2 year age range in the same class.
Throughout the application process, the school will be available to provide information, discuss areas of concern and interest, and respond to any requests parents may have.
Confirmation and acceptance of place
Once a place has been reserved for an applicant, parents are invited to secure this place through payment of the £1,000 Enrolment Fee and completion of the Parent Contract. The Enrolment Fee will be refunded upon graduation or when a student is withdrawn from the school according to the terms stated in the Parent Contract.
Applicants other than UK Nationals
All non UK-nationals will be required to present their passports and visa documents to the school and may be required by UK Border Agency law (www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk) to apply for a visa for study in the U.K. It is the responsibility of the applicant to identify their individual entry requirements to the U.K., but the school will be happy to direct you to appropriate resources. Please ask for further details from the Admissions Office.
All Ashwicke Hall School students whose parents do not live in the U.K. must have a U.K. guardian.
