The 5 Step Admissions Process

Step 4 – Student Assessment (Mandatory)

Kindly note that the non-refundable assessment fees of AED 200 is payable online.

The purpose of the assessment is to gain an understanding of the child’s stage of language development, knowledge, abilities and experience in relation to our academic programme.

There is no preparation required for the Assessment and it is not the only deciding factor as to whether a seat is offered. This is not an exam but merely a guide for us to identify each student’s capabilities and to allow the admissions team to make the most informed decisions regarding placement for your child, the class and class teacher.

You will be contacted within 24 hours from the date of the assessment. If your child is offered a seat at SIA, you will be asked to proceed with registration.

PLEASE NOTE: For entry into Years 1 to 13, successful completion of the assessment and review of school documents is required and for Years 10-13 the same is followed by an interview with the Principal or Head of Secondary regarding subject selection.
