Admissions Procedure

The admissions team will endeavour to respond to your inquiry within 48 hours working hours, however, during peak admissions season our response time may be slightly longer due to the demand for places at our school. We intend to warmly welcome you and to ensure that your children are given every opportunity to be assessed without discrimination.

We designate an admissions advisor to each family who will be in communication with you throughout the admissions timeline. From submission of your inquiry through to the review of application items, notice of completion, waitlist updates, assessment confirmation, consideration of placement and enrolment management – we are here to help you along each step in the process.

Please read the overview of our process below:

Age Placement

Our age placement policy is strictly in accordance with age related criteria. The cut off birthday determining age & grade level is 01 September. Please click here to download ISV Age Placement for the 2021-22 academic year.

Nationality Restriction Policy

ISV is a connected community that celebrates our cultural diversity and our admissions policies aim to reflect that desire to remain truly international. For PYP (from Pre-K to Grade 5), we limit the number of students from one nationality to 105 students in the whole PYP section.

Waiting list

If a placement is not available, the application shall be placed on the waiting list. Kindly note, only a completed application will be placed on the relevant waiting list on a ‘first-come first-served’ basis, in accordance with ISV admissions policies. We endeavor to enroll new students throughout the school year as placements become available. However, it is not possible for us to guarantee placement in advance for each child who applies. The possibility of placement for waiting list applicants will be based on the number of student withdrawals and priority applications, all of which influence the number of vacancies in each age group.
