Admission Procedure

Admissions


Admission to GMIS is open anytime on Principal’s recommendation and is dependent on seat availability. Parents are welcome to visit the School and meet with the Principal (ring Reception at Tel: 0361-239746/239747 for an appointment). Any prospective student is also invited to access our comprehensive website including being able to download the school’s Admission Forms.

 

  • Applicants sit for an Entrance Test and subsequently have an interview with the Principal; the test is an English and Mathematics Assessment and takes about half an hour. The Entrance Test helps to determine what level the student is at the time of admission and the results are informed to the subject teachers so that any required help can be provided to the student.
  • Once admission has been confirmed, applicants meet the Administrative Manager to discuss financial terms.
  • Applicants then submit the completed Admission Form to Reception along with all documents as required (Documents: In addition to comprehensive health screening and visa/ID checking, the two important documents for admission are the Transfer/Clearance Certificate from the previous school and the student’s Report Cards for the past 3 years.)
  • Thereafter, payment of Admission and Enrolment Fees and Security Deposit may be made prior to the applicant enrolling.
  • Uniforms, text books and exercise books are then available from the School Store.
