- 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.
