The AO will require some basic documentation, including the personal details page of the child's passport and a copy of their most recent school report.
The AO will book an entrance test for the year group being applied for. For Primary students these tests are specially designed by BSK. For older students wishing to enter Year 6 to Year 11, age-specific Cognitive Ability Testing (CAT) is used. Applications to join Year 12 or 13 are processed in line with the published entry criteria for admission into those year groups.
The AO will also make contact with the relevant Assistant Head Teacher Pastoral (AHT) in order to inform them of the application.
It should be noted that it is not possible for students to join Year 11 unless they have completed year one of the appropriate two-year GCSE/IGCSE courses. It is not possible for students to join Year 13 unless they have completed year one (AS) of the appropriate two-year Advanced Level courses.
