At One World International School, it's our goal to make the admissions process as straightforward as possible.

We understand that relocating and transitioning to a new school and culture comes with plenty of challenges. To make it easier to navigate those changes, we strive to create a welcoming environment for prospective students and their families. We are a nondenominational, multicultural school that provides a well-rounded education, preparing today’s students to be tomorrow’s leaders.

Requirements and Application

*Rolling admissions are available

Our academic year begins in August and ends in late June, and we accept rolling admissions throughout the year. Our aim will be to try and ensure that our school has a balance of nationalities, genders and languages. This will allow students to enjoy the maximum benefits of learning in a diverse, co-educational environment whilst maintaining a high standard of spoken English, our primary language of instruction. 

The admissions process begins when parents complete the application process. Be sure to include any supporting documents so that your application can be processed in a timely manner. 

Our inquiry-based curricula will help empower students to take ownership of their learning and become independent thinkers from an early age. We place a lot of emphasis on student agency, meaning that the learner is at the centre of learning and is responsible for making choices that drive the learning. 

We focus on teaching and learning Excellence, and as a result, our teachers will personalise their students’ learning journeys by trying to understand their interests and what motivates them. This will allow students to develop a passion for their education that traditional learning methods struggle to maintain.

To make our decision, we look at previous school reports and references, communication with parents and, depending on their age, formal assessments and interviews of prospective students.

To determine whether children are a good fit for our school, we look for:

A positive attitude towards learning

Learning aptitude to benefit from our curriculum

Ability to relate positively to other students

A sufficient level of English to access our curricula or benefit from intensive English instruction

Once your application has been accepted, we will welcome your child to our school community.
