Join our educational journey and let us shape their future together
Thank you for considering joining our Royal Family.
Along with our truly dedicated Admissions and Enrollment Personnel, we look forward to welcoming you!
The Royal School emphasizes academic excellence and is selective in admissions. Acceptance is based on academic achievement rather than age.
Priority is given to students with siblings already enrolled and those from academically aligned schools. Admissions also consider academic aptitude, space availability, and application date, with other factors varying by case.
Upon taking an appointment, the student and his/her parents are requested to come to school in order to start with the admissions process
The Royal School must receive the completed enrollment application & required credentials/documents. Applications are filled on campus and are accepted throughout the school year subject to availability of spaces.
Applicants for Years 1-12 are assessed as part of the admissions process. Prospective students at Foundation Stage, Year 1 and Year 2 levels are evaluated by the Lower Primary Principal. Students applying for Years 3-12 take an on-line Cognitive Abilities Test (CAT4) in the core subjects of Literacy & Numeracy. CAT4 is chosen by schools for its proven accuracy in delivering insights and is the UK’s most widely used test of reasoning abilities for children aged 6-17+ years. Measuring the four main types of ability known to make a difference to learning and achievement, CAT4 provides an independent perspective on potential pupil achievement, with reliable information for each child that will help identify where to provide extra support or set more challenging targets. It provides a unique profile of strengths and weaknesses across four batteries:-
- Verbal Reasoning – the ability to express ideas and reason through words is essential to subjects with a high language content, and the most obvious skill picked up by traditional assessment.
- Non-verbal Reasoning – problem-solving using pictures and diagrams; skills which are important in a wide range of school subjects, including maths and science-based subjects.
- Spatial Reasoning – the capacity to think and draw conclusions in three dimensions, needed for many STEM subjects, but not easily measured by other datasets.
- Quantitative Reasoning – the ability to use numerical skills to solve problems, applicable well beyond mathematics.
The assessment tests are evaluated to determine if the student has attained the minimum expected standard for each subject. The final assessment decision is made by the school and the Family is informed.
The following documents should be submitted on the same day of the assessment. The remaining documents are to be submitted after the acceptance.
