The school will offer places to families where spaces are available and the school can meet the needs of the child. Applications are dealt with on a first come first served basis.
Students are eligible for re-registration for the next academic year unless there are significant behavioral issues. Fees must be up to date to enable re-registration.
Siblings of current students are given priority if the year group is at capacity.
Children of Aquila teaching staff are guaranteed a school place, subject to the terms of their contract and if the school can meet the needs of the staff but must still complete an enrolment form and supply requested documentation.
Where a year group is at capacity, a child may be placed on the waiting list. The parent will be contacted if and when a place becomes available. If a place is offered it must be accepted or declined within 1 week.
Applications for next academic year
These can be made at any time, and admissions assessments will begin in term 1.
The school requires current and accurate information regarding your child’s medical requirements, and that you update the school should the circumstances change. We require records of previous medical treatments, allergies, and immunization records on registration.
Placement of Students After Enrolment
The Aquila School places students in the correct year group in accordance with their age on 31st December if starting school for the first time or in accordance with their year/grade progression as per KHDA policy. To maintain equality and diversity in our classes, and to allow students to better support each other’s academic and social development, we place children in the class by considering nationality, language ability, gender, friendship and additional learning needs.
The Aquila School is a mixed school.
The Aquila School operates a fair and non-discriminatory approach to the selection of students, to enable a diverse and rich cultural experience for all children and members of the school community.
The Aquila School delivers the National Curriculum for England to children in English. Language proficiency in FS1 is not used as an indication for admissions. In FS2, primary and secondary, language proficiency is assessed to ensure students can access the curriculum, in order to progress to the best of their ability in our school.
Additional Learning Requirements
The Aquila School is an inclusive school for gifted students and those with special educational needs. We offer additional learning support where we can help the child to progress. Parents should inform the school at application stage regarding any additional learning support requirements for their child. We may request copies of external documents such as professional assessments and individual learning plans.
The Aquila School believes that good student behavior is fundamental in enabling the best learning experience possible, and all students enrolled at the school should have a positive attitude to learning and respect for the school community. Registration and re-registration are offered subject to this.
Class sizes will not exceed 25 students unless in exceptional circumstances.
Admissions for the academic year 2018-19 are currently open.
