Step 3: Application Review and Assessments
If you are not yet in Thailand, our Admissions team can send a remote assessment pack to your child’s current school/teacher, if you provide these details to our office along with your child’s application.

Applications will be reviewed and any required assessments arranged subject to the availability of places.

We will assess the following applicants:

  • EAL – Applicants who are non-native speakers or multilingual in English and other languages, will be assessed for their English language abilities by an EAL (English as Additional Language) Specialist. This assessment will take place at our school by appointment, prior to confirmation of a place.
  • All Foundation Stage (Nursery, FS1 and FS2) students will be assessed to check their readiness for school entry.
  • Applicants with any potential or confirmed Learning Support needs should make full disclosure of this at the time of submitting the application.
Step 4: Admissions Decision

An admissions decision will be made taking into consideration the results of any assessments, school reports, a confidential recommendation from the previous school and availability of places.  We will contact you as soon as possible to advise whether we are able to offer a place.

If your application has been successful you will receive a formal offer letter from the Head of School.  Please note that you are not guaranteed a place until you receive this letter.

Step 5: Enrolment

Once a place has been offered, parents should sign and return the offer letter to accept the place.  An invoice for an initial fee payment of THB 50,000 will be sent upon acceptance. This non-refundable fee must be paid in order to hold your child’s place. Copies of valid non-immigrant visas for Thailand must be provided before your child starts school.
