How to Apply
Applications for entry onto a Green Shoots programme are accepted all through the year. To find out about entry for your child, please follow the simple steps outlined below.
Contact our Admissions staff via firstname.lastname@example.org
Upon receiving your enquiry, we will send out our Enrolment Form and associated documentation (‘Enrolment Pack’), which you can return to the school via email, by post, or in person.
Once your application has been processed, we will confirm admission and your child’s start date.
Please note that although our school is open to students of all nationalities, the language of instruction is English and a certain level of English proficiency is required for full participation. Students who do not have the required language skills may be asked to attend extra English Language classes at an additional cost.
Green Shoots welcomes applications from all potential students and endeavours to meet the needs of those who wish to study with us. While we are a non-selective school, in order to ensure that we can meet the learning needs of all of our students, we have put in place some entrance criteria.
Ages and Year Levels
At Green Shoots we will generally place students in the year level that corresponds with their age on August 31st of the year of entry. This is because, for the majority of children, an age-appropriate class offers both educational and social benefits beyond those that may be gained from access to an alternative classroom setting. Many of our classes are multi-level, offering ample opportunity for differentiated teaching within an age-appropriate setting.
Under exceptional circumstances we will consider placement in either a higher or lower year level if we believe that by doing so we can enhance a student’s learning experience with us.
The age table given here outlines which year level your child will enter in the 2016-17 and 2017-18 school years.
At Green Shoots we try to keep our fee structure as simple as possible so that you, our parents, can clearly see the total cost of educating your child with us.
Unless otherwise stated on the Fee Schedule, all costs associated with your child’s education (such as meals, books, ICT use, etc) are included in the tuition fee. Fees are charged separately only where they may not apply to all students (such as exam registration fees, bus fees, clothing, etc). A one-off Enrolment Fee is charged upon joining the school to cover the costs associated with enrolling your child with us. We do not charge an application fee.
An annual Development Fee, invoiced at the beginning of each academic year, helps us build our school to meet your child’s future educational needs. This money may be spent on a variety of different things including, but not limited to: curriculum development and teaching resources; accreditation and international school group membership fees, and campus development.
Fees, and our associated fee policy, for the current school year are given below. Fees for the upcoming school year are released in April of the preceding year.
We have included here a number of documents you may find useful. If you require a document that you can not find here, please contact the school to find out more.
Our Parent-Student Handbook and Policy Handbook provide information about how our school works, how we ensure the safety of your child and effectiveness of our teaching environment, and what we expect from our students, staff and parents.
Please contact the school if you have questions you feel remain unanswered after you have read these handbooks.
