Step 2: Written Assessment

Once we have seats to offer, all applicants (except for Play Group) must undergo an admissions test, which consists of a simple age-appropriate oral and written question and answer session with a member of the teaching staff. This helps us to know about each applicant’s capabilities and identify any special needs. Admission assessments are necessary for all students. On the basis of successful assessment results and seat availability, admission will be offered.

Step 3: Face to Face interview

Applicants who clear the written assessments will be invited for a face to face interview with Admissions panel comprising of a representative of the principal of the primary/secondary school plus a teacher/Key Stage and will include the prospective student and at least one parent of the student concerned.

Parents must provide a copy of the previous school reports ; and It is recognised that in the case of applicants applying from overseas or from other states, it will normally not be possible to schedule a meeting until the physical arrival of the families in Chennai. In such cases, the Admissions Panel may grant a conditional admission based on the previous school records. Such conditional approval will be subject to confirmation following the interview, which should be scheduled as soon as reasonably possible.
