Funtaj International School accepts children without discrimination of sex, religion, race or nationality.
Admission to the Schools will be determined by the respective Head of School, with the advice of the teaching staff, based on information obtained with respect to:
– The potential of the applicant to benefit from the educational services available; – The capacity of the school to meet the educational needs of the applicant; – The availability of places.
Applications for admission for the current school year will be considered in order of priority and date of application, as places become available.
Students are assigned to instructional groups primarily on the basis of age. However, factors such as previous records, measured aptitude and achievement, physical and emotional development and other relevant details are also considered. The final decision rests with the Head of School.
A six-week trial period in the class, to which the student is assigned, is mandatory.
The School requires student records in English or translated into English from the applicant’s previous school before any student is accepted. These records include reports, transcripts, results of standardised tests and any reports by a counsellor or psychologist (a checklist is provided). The School reserves the right to contact the applicant’s previous school prior to acceptance.
A standardised entrance test in English and Maths is given to applicants.
The School reserves the right to deny admission or re-enrolment to any applicant if, in its opinion, there were reasons to believe that admission or re-enrolment would not be in the best interest of the applicant or the School.
The School also reserves the right to postpone admission if a class is full. In this case, the applicant is placed on a waiting list. The qualified applicants are then accepted in order of date of application, subject to the above priorities.
A student may be admitted to the School at any time during the school year (if places are available).
