When will I know my child has a place?

For Reception, it will be 6-8 months prior to the school year starting in August. So generally you will be notified between January and March.

For years 1 to 6, as soon as there is an opening you will be contacted.

Once my child has been accepted, what are the instalments for payment?

Once your child has been offered a place the first installment must be paid within ten days of the date of the offer. This ensures the place is secured.

There are a further two installments. You will be notified of the due dates in the confirmation letter.

How do the wait-lists work and can you tell you me where my child is on the wait-list?

Applications are wait-listed according to the date the application is received. The only priority are for applications of children who are siblings of HSV International Primary school current pupils.

We do not give out wait-list positions due to privacy and the constantly changing nature of the lists.

No, an interview is not required as part of the application process. Please ensure all steps are completed in the application process outlined here.
