How to Apply

Admissions are open to all students who would benefit from the education offered at Ascot International School through the medium of English and those whose parents believe and support the philosophy of the school. Ascot admits students whose needs can be met by the school’s programmes and services. All students accepted to Ascot are expected to function in the regular classroom. Children with mild to moderate learning disabilities or physical, mental and emotional/social difficulties are accepted if adequate provision can be offered, enabling the child to function within the regular program.

All children in Upper Primary and Secondary are required to take Maths and English assessments to determine whether they can be admitted. Admission may be dependent on the child receiving EAL support, which is provided free of charge..

It is the responsibility of the parent to inform the school of any serious condition. Failure to do so could result in reviewing the child’s position at school. Applications for admission are accepted throughout the year. All applications to the school must be accompanied by previous educational records, any significant medical conditions, proof of age and copies of the most recent educational/psychological assessment and the Individualized Educational Program (IEP) from the applicant’s current school if appropriate.

Placement

Acceptance by the Headteacher, Head of Primary Years and Secondary Years, and Special Educational Needs Coordinator, is tentative and the school may reassess the child’s placement after the child’s abilities have been thoroughly observed in class or through additional testing. Children entering Ascot will be placed according to their age as of 31st August of the year they enter. A spreadsheet showing birthdate and the relevant placement is used to advise parents during the admissions process.

A child will be placed in the relevant year class (dependent on their chronological age), in exceptional cases, a child may be accepted into a class one year below their chronological age. In this situation, previous school records and internal assessment will determine the placement, on approval by the Head of School.
