Admissions

Would you like to pre-register your child at our school?

Start by completing the online form to put your child on our waiting list free of charge. You are also invited to our collective visits, which take place twice a year. In case of availability, we will then arrange a meeting with the Head teacher and a visit of the school.

 

Registration is for a full 10-month school year. It is officially registered on receipt of all the required administrative documents, together with payment of the registration fee and the first month’s school fees.
