Do students have to sit an entry test?
New students must attend a “Discovery Day” to enable the class teacher and the school head to assess academic strengths and challenges of the students. There is an English Test provided on this day for students applying to Primary School. Applicants to Secondary will take additional tests in other subjects. If students pass the test, parents are required to enrol students at school within 1 week.

Do you accept applications for enrolment during the academic year and what are your intake year levels?
Charter International School accepts students at all year levels throughout the year and even mid-term, if places are available in the year level required.

Do you operate waiting lists?
Waiting lists operate in all year levels. For this reason, every application we receive for enrolment at Charter International School is registered by its date of submission and becomes part of our database of prospective families. At the beginning of the year, place availability is assessed and if a place is available in the year level of entry required, our Registrar contacts families from our database to determine whether the family still wishes to continue with the enrolment at Charter International School. Once these replies are received we arrange an interview for the family. Offers of placements are made after the interview. Priority is given to siblings of our current students.
