Admission Information

At One World International School, it's our goal to make the admissions process as straightforward as possible.

We understand that relocating and transitioning to a new school and culture comes with plenty of challenges. To make it easier to navigate those changes, we strive to create a welcoming environment for prospective, new and returning students and their families. We are a nondenominational, multicultural school that provides a well-rounded education, preparing today's students to be tomorrow's leaders.

Requirements and Application

Enrolment is open to students of all nationalities.

Our academic year begins in August and ends in late June, and we accept relocation admissions throughout the year. Our policy is to try and ensure that each class has a balance of nationalities, genders and languages. This allows students to enjoy the maximum benefits of learning in a multicultural, co-educational environment whilst maintaining a high standard of spoken English, our primary language of instruction.

The admissions process begins when parents complete the application process. Be sure to include any supporting documents so that your application can be processed in a timely manner.

To make our decision, we look at previous school reports and references, communication with parents and, depending on their age, formal assessments and interviews of prospective students. To determine whether children are a good fit for our school, we look for: 

A positive attitude toward learning
Learning aptitude to benefit from our curriculum
Ability to relate positively to other students
A sufficient level of English to access our curriculum or benefit from intensive English instruction

Learn more about our English Language Support Programme

Beginning in Early Childhood, we accept students who are new to English if we believe that they can learn it quickly through immersion in everyday class activities. For children in Grades 1-5 who are new to English, we ask that parents enrol them to intensive English lessons (offered by OWIS) and provide general support at home. Students in Grade 6 onwards must be proficient enough to access the curriculum without additional help.

We also accept students who have English as a second language as long as they can access the curriculum and have sufficient support at home.

Once your child has been accepted, we prepare an official student contract, welcoming your child to our school community.

We like that the school is very multicultural and that our daughter comes home feeling valued. Teachers make her feel that her contribution and opinions matter. At OWIS, children are taught that being part of a team and teamwork is just as important as personal advancement!

OWIS places the children first. The ‘back to basics’ feeling of prioritising what matters forms the educational and social wellbeing of all students and is a plus for me. I also like that technology plays enough of a part within my children's studies but does not dominate basic skills towards literacy with reading, writing and presentation. There is very much a balance.
