Admissions

When considering placing a child, we mainly consider the date of birth (appropriate age of the child), the information provided by the parents on the child’s developmental history, school reports from the previous school where applicable, a readiness test for the children joining Reception or Pre-primary class and any other relevant information that has been provided.

The following procedures are to be followed when applying:

Step 1

To begin the application process, please pick and fill an application form from the Admissions Office. The form should be submitted along with the following documents:

  • A valid copy of birth certificate
  • A copy of immunization/vaccination card
  • 2 recent passport photographs
  • A recent report card /or leaving certificate from the previous school for students applying to Reception class.

Step 2

Once you have filled and submitted the application form, a convenient date will be scheduled for the entrance assessment (For Reception/Pre-primary Class only). Entrance assessments are intended to detect the level of current development and achievement. For KG/NR 1, 2 & 3 admission is based on the appropriate age as per the class.

Step 3

When the assessment is completed, the Admissions Officer will invite the parent to discuss the results of his/her child and then, if appropriate, issue an admission letter, bank slips, and Nursery School regulations. Payment should be made within two weeks from the date the admission letter is issued. A copy of the School bank slip should be delivered at the Admissions Office after making the payments.

Step 4

Once fees are paid, the parent will be required to purchase a complete set of School uniform.

Step 5

On the starting date, the parent will be required to come along with the child/student to the Admissions Office by 8:00am and the Admissions Officer will then introduce the parent and child to the Nursery School Head teacher.

Please note that registration at the Aga Khan Nursery School does not guarantee your child a space in Nursery School, and AKNS reserves the right to place a child in the class which is most appropriate, according to their age and current development stage. Class sizes are also limited, so early registration is advised to avoid disappointment. In case a class is full, your child will be put on the waiting list on payment of 50% admission fee. Application to the School is not limited to the Nursery School but applies to the whole school. For example, a child can be asked to join the School at Primary School level when a vacancy arises.
