Admission Procedure

Selection Process

Students seeking admission into Years 7 - 11/ Forms 1 - 4 at secondary level have to take an entrance examination. Admission into the IB and the ‘A’ level programme is based on student performance in public examinations.

Where students are equal on merit and there are limited places available, precedence will be given first to siblings of students already attending any of the Aga Khan Schools and then to siblings of graduates of Aga Khan Mzizima Secondary School.

Time of Admission

Ordinarily, time of admission 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 places are available.

Applications will generally not be accepted for admission into Year 11 or Form 4 and Year 13 or Form 6. Exceptions can be made if 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 together with a good faith deposit.

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 take the entrance examination on the announced date should contact the school. The School will arrange an alternative date, if there are still places available in the required year group.

Visits to the School

Parents and prospective students are welcomed to make an appointment to meet the Head Teacher and to tour the school.

Office hours are 7.15 am to 4.00 pm.
