Admissions Policy

The Head Teacher shall maintain a fair and transparent admissions system and shall accept candidates who can benefit from and contribute to our mission and the school’s standards-bases, university and college preparatory curriculum delivered in the English language. Furthermore, the Head Teacher shall ensure that the rights of current students take precedence over those of candidates.

The Head Teacher should define the academic, physical, emotional, social and behavioral criteria candidates must meet for acceptance into the school. In particular, the Head Teacher shall only admit candidates if sufficient space and resources are available to meet their academic, physical, emotional, social and behavioural needs. The Head Teacher has the absolute right to refuse admission to any candidate and ensure that each candidate is considered fairly. When necessary, his or her needs must be assessed in the context of both the candidate’s ability to progress within the standard curriculum and the support services available within the school’s approved budget and the candidate’s year level.

It is not the policy of MIS to place students in year levels above or below their ability. Any exceptions are made by the Head of Department.

Basic Admissions Principles

1. MIS upholds a non-discriminatory policy and accepts applications from eligible students from: Pre-School, Primary through Secondary levels, regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, economic or social background.
2. MIS admits, according to available resources, students whose learning needs can be effectively supported by the school.
3. MIS gives admissions priority to: a) siblings of enrolled students based on the admissions considerations and at the discretion of the Head Teacher; b) children of teachers at MIS or other members of its staff.

Admissions Criteria
1. Early Years: Children will be required to pass an interactive test that will examine their attention distribution, personality and some basic numeracy and speaking abilities.
2. Primary and Secondary: Children will be given entrance exams in English &Maths to determine whether their level in these subjects fits with the year they are applying for.


The age that the student will be on 1st October will indicate the year they will attend.

Admission Process
1. A Parent has to complete an application form at the Student Affairs Office.

2. Student Affairs will then give the parent an appointment for an interview and assessment.

3. On the day of the assessment, parents with their child / children will meet with our Inclusion Manager. Once the interview is complete children will do their entrance exam in Math & English.

4. As soon as we receive the results, Student Affairs will call the parents to arrange an interview with a member of the Board of Directors, provided that the child passed his / her entrance exam.

5. We will at this stage require the latest Academic Report as well as a behaviour letter from the current school.

6. Once a prospective student has completed the above steps, acceptance may be given, based not only exam marks, but also general behaviour and personal interviews.

7. Preference will be given to students with exceptionally high marks, provided we have a placement available at the time. If not, a student will be placed on our waiting list and students who performed best overall during their assessments will receive the first available placement.

8. The final decision of acceptance is made by the Chairman and this will be communicated to parents via a telephone call from Student Affairs.

9. Manchester International School is unable to accommodate students that have special educational needs. The school is registered as non-specialist and provides mainstream education. It does not have the facilities or resources to meet the needs of students with special educational needs. It is the obligation of the applicant to state if they’re applying for a student that has special educational needs. Manchester International School takes no responsibility for the applicant’s non-disclosure of accurate information.


Terms and Conditions

1. MIS Admissions will be determined by the Head of School, with the advice of the academic staff, based on information obtained with respect to:
- The potential of the applicant to benefit from the educational programme available.
- The capacity of the school to meet the educational needs of the student; the availability of places

2. Initial year placement is determined on the basis of age and ability of the student. The decision of MIS in year placement will be communicated to parents prior to acceptance. MIS continually assesses the progression and re-evaluates the development of the student and reserves the right to reconsider the year placement in exceptional situations as described as follows:
- Promotion from one year to another;
- Retention in a particular year;
- Continued enrolment at MIS will be based on academic, personal, behavioural and social/emotional aspects of a student’s school record.

3. MIS reserves the right to deny admission or dismiss a student if:
- The student’s best interests and needs cannot be met effectively by the school’s programmes and services;
- The student’s behaviour is deemed to jeopardise the welfare of the school community;
- Educationally significant information is withheld from the school;
- School fees are not paid in accordance with financial regulations.

4. Admission may be postponed if a year level reaches the number of 20 students. In this case, the applicant is placed on a waiting list. Qualified applicants are then accepted in order of the date of application, subject to the above conditions.

5. Parents must pay the registration fee promptly and all the necessary fees on time; failure to do so will result in the student losing their place at MIS.
