Placing your child in the right class is very important in their development. We allocate students to a class based on the following criteria:

  • Age according to UK schools’ criteria. (the table below is a guide to which class a child is most likely to enter)

  • Academic background (e.g. having already completed a specific year in the British system at a previous school).
  • Special circumstances based on observations and for specific social/emotional (non-academic) reasons.

Please note that whilst each applicant is considered individually and with reference to their educational background, based on best practice we do not generally advocate putting children in classes ahead of their age group.

School reserves the right, based on professional judgement, to move a student to another class and/or year group following careful consideration and clear communication with the parents should we feel the student is not optimally placed.
