Further Important Notes:

Students of Early Years must be toilet-trained to attend the applicable year level at Al Wisam School.

Early Years students must obtain a medical report stating they are fit to join a regular school.

Applicants of Reception through to Year 12 will sit for an admission/placement test to determine their level.

An interview is an integral part of the admission process.

The placement test is designed to reveal 3 things to the school and to the parents:

  1.  Is the student able to enter the British Diploma programme?

  2.  What year level should the student be placed in?

  3.  Should the student be admitted into the school under conditions of probation and with tutoring services in place
