To begin with, complete the registration form and submit a copy of your child’s passport and a copy of their latest school report which shows the year group in which they have been studying (if applicable) along with the registration fee. Once the school has received the completed registration form, your child will be invited to an assessment session.
An age-appropriate assessment is conducted at Foremarke prior to offering your child a place. The assessment is an opportunity for the school to get to know the child better and in terms of their social competence, maturity, and behavior.
