What to Expect

We aim to make the whole process of enrolment as simple and straightforward as possible. We also like to keep in-touch with prospective students and their parents as they move through the process of joining our School. The simple step-by-step guide illustrates the process.

STEP 1

The initial enquiry – online, by telephone, via email or in person. Further information can be obtained and a visit arranged.

STEP 2

Visiting the School – parents and prospective students. This provides an opportunity for an informal chat with the Principal, the chance to ask questions, and seek clarification about the life of the School.

STEP 3

Tour of the School – with the Principal – when there is the opportunity to see the quality of our facilities, and meet current students and staff.

STEP 4

Speak with our admissions team to clarify the enrolment procedure.

STEP 5

A letter is sent, offering a place.

STEP 6

Further interview, if required, to clarify any specific requirements.

STEP 7

Parent or guardian confirms acceptance of the offer of a place.

STEP 8

Invitation for the student to attend our transition day in November. Here they will meet with their future class mates and get a taste of some of the activities on offer.

STEP 9

Parents will be invited to make an appointment to have a uniform fitted.

STEP 10

Orientation Day for new students - on the day before the School opens for the new academic year. Students receive their timetables, are allocated lockers and ensure their log-in details for our IT network are working. They also complete some on-line ability tests to provide as much information as possible about their strengths and weaknesses. This ensures that the students are placed in classes appropriate to their ability and can have additional help allocated if required. New students also meet with the School Counsellor, and enjoy games and activities run by the School Prefects.

STEP 11

The next day is the first day of School for all students.

STEP 12

In Week 3 of Term 1 a social ‘sundowner’ gives new and current parents the chance to meet with staff and members of the School Council to help them become part of the EACS community.
