Children are admitted by selection and organised both in terms of age and ability. Applications for September intake are invited during May/June every year with Saturday 23 June being the deadline for 2018.

Minimum age for admission is 6½ years – the school has 150 places for this age group.   The school also has a Preparatory Class for children aged 5½ and 6½ years.  There are usually limited number of places for children aged 7 and over.  Please apply early to avoid disappointment.

Applicants are invited to a short interview which decides the outcome of the application. SIS applies the following admission criteria when selecting pupils:

1. children of the right age group for which places are available
2. children whose needs can be met by the school
3. children who live close to the school
4. children who have siblings (brothers and sisters) in the school

Unsuccessful applicants need to re-apply as the school does not operate a waiting list.

SIS usually only admits children from September.  This allows the school to ensure that all children are taught well and following the same syllabus.

However, on rare occasions the school may accommodate enrolment at different time of the year.  Interested parents are requested to email their requests to
