Schools in Tanzania
A great school,
"will educate its students not merely to be personally successful but also to use their gifts to build their communities and enhance the common good to levels beyond our dreams."
The Aga Khan Schools in Tanzania welcome boys and girls of all nationalities, races, religions and cultural heritage.
The schools are all selective and students seeking admission to the primary and Years 7 - 11/ Forms 1 - 4 at secondary level have to take an entrance examination. In the case of admission to nursery school, entrance selection is by interview. Admission to the IB DP and the ‘A’ level programmes is on the basis of performance in public examinations.
Where students are equal on merit and there are limited places available, precedence will first be given to siblings of students already attending any of the Aga Khan Schools and second to siblings of graduates of AKMSS.
Time of Admission
The ordinary time of admission to an AKES,T school is at the beginning of the school year for the year group for which admission is being sought. Students will be admitted mid-year where there are places available.
Applications will generally not be accepted for admission into Year 11 or Form 4 and Year 13 or Form 6. The only exception to this is where the student is coming directly from overseas.
Announcements are made in the local press inviting applications for admission. Information is given about closing dates for submitting application forms and the dates and times of entrance examinations.
Before sitting for an entrance examination, a completed application form has to be submitted and a good faith deposit made.
Where there are more eligible applicants than places for a particular year group, admission will be on a first come basis.
Parents of prospective students who are not able to sit the entrance examination on the announced date should contact the school to request a suitable alternative date. The school will be happy to arrange an alternative date, if there are still places available in the required year group.
Visits to the School
Parents and prospective students are most welcome to make an appointment to meet the Headteacher and to have a tour of the school.
Office hours are 7.15 am to 4.00 pm.
