Steps for Admission

Step 1

Prospective students who wish to apply to the ISSP will need to submit all forms, fees and documents before an application can be reviewed for admission. Applications are considered in chronological order of receipt.

Step 2

Once these documents have been submitted and the application fee has been received, the Admissions Office will review the application file. More information may be requested from you or from your child’s previous school. ISSP will then contact your family to schedule age specific assessments with our academic team followed by an informal interview. You will then be notified whether your child has met the criteria for admission.

Step 3

When a place is offered, the capital assessment fee must be paid within seven (7) days. If the capital assessment is not received within 7 days, priority will be given to other applicants. The Medical Examination Form will need to be completed and returned prior to the student’s start date.
