Joining School Later On
Sometimes children join school when the term has started or later in their school life. We make every effort to make sure they are welcomed, looked after and monitored so that they quickly make friends and can find their way around the school. Teachers give students time to settle in before making an assessment of their academic ability. The assessment, together with records from their previous school will enable your child to have the best start at our schools.
