At the start of the academic year, admission from Year 3 upwards is dependent on a Transfer Certificate to ensure continuity of education for every child.  This is particularly important when transferring from a different curriculum. Children joining us during the academic year must also provide a Transfer Certificate from Reception - Year 11.


The next step for admissions

In order to give your child the best education and learning environment, and to ensure that Amity International School is a great match for them, we believe it is very important to get to know each child before they join. Our Admissions team will contact you to book an appointment, once your child's application is received. You will find more details below for each stage.


Nursery and Reception Programme

Children applying for our Nursery and Reception Programme are invited to a play session where we can understand your child’s development as well as your aspirations for their education.  These sessions are very relaxed, there are no hidden tests to pass or fail and no need to prepare your child to perform.


Years 1 and 2

Children will be invited to meet with the Registrar to give us a better understanding of their speech and language development. The Admissions Team will be with your child throughout the informal meeting. We’ll also need a copy of your child’s last school or nursery report, ideally before the meeting.


Key Stage 2 and 3 (Years 3 to 9)

Applicants will be asked to take our admission assessments designed to measure academic readiness for the year your child is applying for. We will also need a copy of your child’s last report for a broad overview of their capabilities.


Overseas Applications

If you currently live overseas, we will do our best to process your child’s application based on their most recent report or organise a Skype assessment
