Woodford International School has an open policy on eligibility. While the offer to enrol is not decided by ability, religion, or race, there are limitations in what we are able to provide with regard to special needs children or children who have little or no command of the basic language of instruction, English. In such circumstances parents may be requested to pay for the additional assistance of a teacher aide for their child and/or to enroll them in additional support classes. Failure to comply with any such request may lead to the cancellation of a student's enrolment.
The enrolment process involves 3 stages:
- The completion of a placement test
- Interview with the Head of School or designated officer
Should be on the appropriate form and be accompanied by proof of date of birth (certificate or passport), the last two school reports for students applying to enter grade 1 or above and submitted with the application fee*. *SBD$1000.00 is required which will be used to offset fees in the first year of enrolment. In cases where an enrolment offer is not taken up or deferred, no refund will be provided and a new application and fee will be required.
A student’s initial placement will be according to age using the following guidelines but may be adjusted by the Head of School following the
review of placement tests, interview and observations of performance over the first couple of weeks.
