WAT is an inclusive school and admits students irrespective of gender, religion and nationality.
The school admits students with learning problems and physical handicaps on a case by case basis, depending on whether the school can accommodate their specific needs. Each student’s safety, well-being and impact on the instructional program will be considered prior to a final decision.
When you decide that WAT is the right school for your child, you will need to complete our admissions process. Our administrative staff is on hand to guide you through this process.
The application materials can be found in this section of the website. You can download the tuition fees, application form and other relevant documents below.
Students can only be enrolled if the parents provide all documentation required. For children who have not yet completed two years of schooling or for students who have attended a school that does not issue a report card, a confidential letter of recommendation completed by a teacher or Principal at the child’s current school may be requested.
Students joining the secondary school must take an English Language Test in listening, writing, speaking and reading. The outcomes of this test do not affect admission to the school but they help the school determine the level of students and deliver a programme that suits their needs. The school provides English Language Support for students who need support in English.
It is preferable that the students visit the school to take the test but alternatively this test can be taken just before the students enter the school. Depending on the documentation provided, the school may decide to administer an additional Math Test and an interview on general scientific and humanities knowledge.
For admission to the Grades 9 – 12 the school needs to determine the degree of potential success for a student working in English language based classes. Where there are more applicants than available places and all necessary conditions are met, admission shall be by date of application according to a waiting list.
The following forms and documents must be submitted before the interview and assessment takes place (see Step 4 above)
Parents may also be requested to provide the contact details of a teacher / the principal at the previous school to allow us to obtain a reference from this school.
