Admission Requirements

Pre-enrolment Information

In what language are the classes taught?
All classes are taught in English. It is helpful for incoming students to have a reasonable proficiency and grasp of the English language, but this is not a requirement for Early Years and Primary. For secondary students this is an essential factor to consider when applying. GIS employs EAL specialists (English as an additional language) to assist students whose first language is not English.

Are there admissions or entrance tests?
Children of all abilities are welcome. A central purpose of GIS is to ensure each child’s worth is recognised and appreciated regardless of preceding academic capacity. All Secondary students take English and Maths assessments to ensure that they will thrive at Grace. These assessments help the teachers better meet each child’s needs in learning and instruction.

What else should I know before applying?
GIS accepts children of varying abilities, ethnicities, and religions. Class sizes are limited. We predominantly accept children with foreign passports; however, we have recently been granted approval to accept some local students (Bangladeshi passport).
