Belvedere British School operates restrictive entry/admissions procedures. The access procedures and admissions include an entrance examination. Pupils are assessed prior to and upon entry to the school to ensure individual needs are identified and met. The school seeks at all times to provide an individual service ensuring all assessed needs are met accordingly.
In addition, parents or guardians must complete the Belvedere Application Form, provided by the School. This form should be returned to the School before Term 3 of the academic year.
Belvedere British School requests that all children upon entry should be able to communicate in English at a level that is expected for their age group. Children of all nationalities are welcome to apply. The school will assess the child’s ability in English and if necessary will advise parents or guardians of summer school booster sessions in the English Language when available.
Children with special needs are also very welcome to apply and the school will assess their ability and discuss with the parent or guardian whether the school can accommodate the child in order to provide the essential teaching, learning, and care required. Each case is assessed individually based on the child’s needs.
From Year 7 onwards, boys and girls will be in separate classes, this will also be enforced in most extra-curricular activities.
We reserve the right to refuse admission to a student where we are unable to meet their educational needs.

Parents expressing an interest in the Belvedere British School are asked to complete and return our Registration of Interest Form. This may be completed at any time prior to entry.
Once we have received your Registration of Interest Form, we will contact you to book a suitable time for you to come and view the School. You may bring your child with you if you wish. There is no formal assessment of your child at this stage.
Entry to Belvedere British School is by a process of stages (formal assessment, interview, previous school reports, and Transfer Letter). Offers of places are then based on a discussion with parents as to how the school can meet their child’s needs. This is regardless of religion, ethnic background, or beliefs.
Prior to any formal offer of a place, children attend an Assessment Day, and if successful, are invited to return for an interview.
Based on the information we have gathered about your child (which would include his/her assessment results, interview, their previous school reports, and transfer letter), we discuss with you how we feel your child would be able to have his/her skills and talents developed at Belvedere British School.
On Assessment Day, we are testing the academic ability of your child. That is to enable us to gain their correct academic profile, they will sit the correct Assessment Test Paper for their age (English Spelling Test; English Writing Test; Numeracy Test).
According to their results from the Assessment Day, the next process will be an interview. It is at this interview that the Year Group your child is to be placed in will be discussed with families and decided (their age, the Year Group that they are currently in; their previous academic school report; and their transfer letter will all be taken into consideration before the Year Group is finally decided). We look forward to meeting with you in this interview.
After this interview and subject to available places, you will receive an Offer of a Place with a start date indicated. You are required to complete the Acceptance Form and accept our Terms and Conditions.
Once we have received your confirmation, we provide you with all our necessary consent forms, uniform lists, and any class information. Furthermore, you will have the opportunity to meet your child’s Class Teacher and discuss your child’s transition to Belvedere British School.
