After the application is completed, we invite each prospective student to meet with the principal and the admissions team for a visit. During the visit, the student and his or her family will have the opportunity to ask questions and learn more about St. George’s International School. The student will also sit the English Placement Test and Cognitive Ability Test (CAT) during this visit.

On occasions, we understand that is not possible for a child relocating from abroad to meet in person with school leadership. In these circumstances, a Skype interview can be held and the child may sit the tests online.

The admissions committee reviews all applications once they are completed and a decision is made. When your child is offered a place at St. George’s International School, you will receive:

  • An acceptance letter
  • A form of intent
  • An invoice for the entrance fees

If you have any questions before you submit the application, please get in touch.
