7Hills International School

Admission Procedure

7Hills Admissions Procedures

7Hills aspires to be an inclusive school and operates an open admissions policy.  Admission is not determined by academic level alone but the suitability of the school for the student and our ability to meet each student’s needs. 

7Hills is committed to only admitting those students whose needs can be met by the services available. To that end, following completion of our application form, the family meets with the Head of School, the student attends a shadow day and is interviewed by the Head of School. 

A generic assessment is taken by all students. Should a student’s performance be so low as to make it difficult for the school to meet the student’s needs given the services available, the student will not be admitted. Where there is reasonable doubt, a three-month probationary period will be given as a condition of admission.

7Hills are open to admitting students with mild to moderate special educational needs but must carefully assess those needs prior to admission to determine the school’s ability to fulfil them.

Parents are asked to identify any known needs on the enrolment form. Where a student is already receiving additional support or is known to have any special needs, parents are required to provide assessments, Individual Education Plans, or other documentation about the identified need.

A Confidential Report Form is sent to all student’s previous school requesting details of the current support given to the student.

In the event of physical disability, a risk assessment would be carried out to ensure that the school is not putting a student at risk by admitting them. Every effort to enable access would be made but the school reserves the right not to admit a student if the cost of creating the needed access was beyond the reach of the school.
