Parents wishing to register their children in the secondary school should kindly note that all applicants are expected to undergo a selection procedure which not only considers pupils’ abilities but also assesses their capacity to integrate successfully and contribute positively to the current student body. In this respect, we pay special attention to each applicant’s academic, extracurricular and disciplinary records and consider his/her current schooling and educational background.
Please note that Park Lane’s secondary branch currently considers applications for entry to Years 7-11 (i.e. students aged 11-15). N.B. Our first cohort of Year 10 students began their Cambridge IGCSE courses in September 2016 and will tackle the IB Diploma Programme from September 2018.
Most of the basic registration procedures outlined in the primary school section (above) also apply to the secondary school (with the Head of Primary being replaced by the Principal). However, students wishing to register for Years 7, 8, 9, 10 or 11 are required to take entrance exams, which comprise of an online CEM selection assessment and an English proficiency test. Our secondary enrolment process also includes a trial day at school followed by an interview with the Principal. In all cases, we require very good to excellent school reports for the current and past two academic years and, where possible, a strong letter of support from the pupil’s current (or previous) head of school.
