Admission into BISG is highly competitive. Prospective families are therefore encouraged to register early. Our admissions office will support you throughout the entire process.

We have an open enrolment and therefore accept registrations all year round but, an earlier application will increase your family’s chances of securing a place. If we are not able to offer a place, you may choose to be added to our waitlist on a first come first served basis.

All prospective students will take an entrance assessment called CEM Select Evaluate produced by the Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring(CEM) and places will be offered only to those who meet the threshold mark.

In determining the appropriate age group for each student, BISG uses the British academic year: 1st September to 31st August. The school does not admit students to a year group above or below their chronological age, unless there are exceptional circumstances. These will be discussed on an individual basis with parents prior to the placement of the child.
