Admissions - Procedures

To seek admission to Westwood International School parents need to complete and provide for each child:  

  1. an Application for Admission Form  
  2. at least two recent school reports (translated into English where appropriate)  
  3.  a copy of the applicant's birth certificate  
  4. one current passport-sized photograph  
  5. evidence of good financial standing from the previous school  

 If a child has a special or specific need please provide us with all the necessary documentation such as:

  1. Specialist Report (e.g. Occupational Therapist Reports, Psychological Reports and Doctors Evaluations etc.)  
  2. Report and/or assessment from Special Needs Teacher of former School.  
 Additional Requirements for Secondary School Admission
 A student wishing to enroll in the secondary school must meet the following additional requirements:
  1.  successful completion of the preceding year or its equivalent in another recognised educational institution
  2. a general fit within the recognised age-group for the intended year of study (see table on the school website)
  3. a previous school record free from behavioural or discipline problems; and
  4.  where a student has English as a second language, enrollment will be dependent on their ability to access the curriculum, with reasonable ESL support.
Where any of the above requirements are not fully met, the school may, at the Head of School's discretion, admit a student on a conditional placement, subject to review as outlined above. Admission to the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme is subject to previous examination results and/or school reports, as well as admission criteria as stipulated by the IBO.
 
A student who has received schooling equivalent to the highest year at WIS from another educational institution is not eligible for admission to WIS. A WIS student who has completed two years in the IB Diploma Programme may enroll for a further, final year in order to complete graduation requirements.
