Step 3 THE ASSESSMENT

The Assessment takes place with the school by appointment, although in some circumstances it may be possible for the assessment to be sat in a family’s country of residence where that is outside of Thailand.  The Admissions team will be happy to advise you.

In most cases, the assessment is as follows:

Early Years and Year 1-2

Applicants will be assessed using a play-based interview, at which time the applicant is assessed in the areas of fine motor skills, language use, and development, social skills, ability to follow instructions, and general program readiness. Year 1,2 applicant will be asked to submit previous academic year report card, which helps demonstrate class experiences.

Year 3-6

Students are initially screened with a computer-based WIDA test for English placement covering speaking, listening, reading and writing in English. MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) assessment will be used to determine the student’s math skills.  Thai language tests in reading and writing. Family interview with Principal.

Year Group Placement

Year group placement is decided by the age of the applicant, previous school year reports and how a child fairs in their assessment. The International Primary Curriculum allows our teachers to meet their student's individual needs based on both their age and stage of learning. Therefore, it is rare that we place a child outside of their age group.

Step 4 THE OFFER OF A PLACE

A decision on acceptance and placement will be based on many factors including school reports and the pre-entrance assessment. This will often be communicated the same day as the assessment but in certain circumstances, it could take a maximum of 5 working days.

Step 5 ACCEPTANCE AND GUARANTEE OF A PLACE

An offer will be given personally or in writing and once accepted our admissions team will check all required documents have been submitted. You will receive a follow-up email that will provide you with Invoices for Tuition Fee payment and its deadline. Payment must be made within the due date to secure the place. After payment has been completed, a foreign family is welcome to consult the admissions team regarding your visa plan.
