PROCEDURE (LINK TO APPLICATION FORMS)

  1. The first step is to complete and return the Application Form and the Application Fee of THB 5000 per child (non-refundable). All documents should be translated into English.
  2. Applicants will be invited for an age-appropriate assessment…
    • Nursery – Reception entry
    • Pupils will meet with teachers in small groups to determine attainment of age-related language and developmental milestones, followed by a discussion with parents/guardians
    • Year 1 and 2 entry
    • Children will meet with a teacher for a one-to-one assessment which will consider, as well as developmental progress and social skills, literacy, numeracy and reasoning. A discussion with parents/guardians will follow.
    • Year 3 to 8 entry
    • Children will be assessed in literacy, numeracy and reasoning skills. They will be interviewed to establish their broader interests and character. Where appropriate in respect of ‘key area 2’, further assessment may take place.
    • Year 9 – 12
    • Pupils will be assessed academically either through consideration of formal Public Examination results, or through assessment in numeracy, literacy, reasoning and such other specific subjects as may be required. They will be interviewed to establish their broader interests and character. Where appropriate in respect of ‘key area 2’, further assessment may take place.
  3. Following the assessment, parents/guardians will be informed either that
    • a) The entry requirements have been met and a place is to be offered, or
    • b) The entry requirements have been met, but that no places are available and so the pupil’s name is to be added to the waiting list, or
    • c) In order to make a final decision, further information is required – perhaps in respect of English skills or special educational needs, or
    • d) The entry requirements have not been met, and so no place can be offered at this stage.
  4. In order to secure a place once offered, parents/guardians must, within the time period set out in the offer letter, complete and return the Acceptance Form, together with all supporting documentation and the non-refundable Acceptance Fee of THB 150,000 per child.
