The Application Process

Step 1 – Expression of Interest

Prospective parents should contact the Admissions Office by email admissions@isa.aberdeen.sch.uk to express their interest in enrolling their child(ren) in ISA. Fee information is included below and in the Prospectus. Please note, there is a specific Pre-School Enrolment Form for Pre-School (Nursery and Pre-Kindergarten) admissions only.

A ‘no obligation’ tour of the facility can be arranged prior to commencement of the formal admissions procedure.

Step 2 – Formal Admission Process

To commence the formal admission process, it is essential that the School receives:

Completed Enrolment Application Form or Pre-School Enrolment Form (one per child)
A minimum of three years previous school records (if applicable)
A copy of the information/photo page of the passport
Confidential Teacher Recommendation

Upon receipt of the Enrolment Application Form, previous school records and passport copy, an appointment will be made through the Admissions Office for student/parent interviews with the respective Principal and Counselor, together with any required in-house assessments.

Step 3 – Decision Notification

In the majority of cases, the Principal is able to confirm acceptance at the time of interview. Should the Principal require further information/reports to support the enrolment application after interview, a decision will be notified to the parents as soon as possible after receipt of such documentation. Parents should notify ISA of their decision to accept enrolment.

Personal interviews are not always possible prior to arrival in Aberdeen or during school holidays; in this instance, assuming all necessary documentation has been received, 'provisional admission' may be indicated and interviews will be scheduled upon arrival.

Step 4 - Upon Acceptance

If children are accepted, parents will receive a 'start of school' package from the Admissions Office which includes additional information required by the School, as well as other information on ISA, its Community and activities.

Parents should arrange an appointment to meet with the School Nurse as soon as possible, to ensure student medical information is up-to-date and to discuss any concerns +44 (0)1224 730300 or email admissions@isa.aberdeen.sch.uk

All fee issues should be directed to the Business Office +44 (0)1224 730300 or email business@isa.aberdeen.sch.uk
