We expect all students to have a reasonable level of English in respect to the Year level they are entering.
As a guideline we would expect:
However, it is a case by case assessment. Achieving this score does not guarantee acceptance. We do not require the student to sit IELTS before they start as we test arriving students to determine their Year level. Students who are eligible may be able to have a multilevel timetable. For example, a Year 11 student would be able to take Year 12 Maths. We do not allow students to ‘skip’ a year, such as moving from Year 11 to Year 13.
Our minimum term of enrolment is six months, which is two terms.
Students must begin at our school with all medical conditions declared. This includes pre-existing, ongoing and mental medical conditions.
We recommend submitting an application at least six months in advance due to high demand. The application must be fully completed with all supporting documents.
Incomplete applications will not be processed.
All copies of original documents must be verified by a lawyer, notary public, Justice of the Peace or an Epsom Girls approved Education Recruitment Agent. These need to be verified as true and correct copies, signed and dated.
Here is a brief timeline:
Do you want help from a consultant to complete your application? Our School works with many agencies in many different countries and we can give you a choice of helpful advisors near you. They can give you native-speaker advice as well as helping with visa and travel arrangements.
