- Child’s academic information (current grade and current school details, the grade they are applying for and reason to switch)
- There is also an application fee parents have to pay, it’s the cost of evaluating applicants.
If the school shortlists your child, then you and your child may have to visit the school for an Interview. The counsellor will inform you about the date and therefore you do not have to worry.
This visit is not only an interview but here you can ask questions, clear all your doubts about the school in question. The counsellor will provide your child with in-depth detail of the school, classes, curriculum, assessment and teachers. They will also conduct oral Interviews to gauge student’s abilities and skills. It will help them to gauge the child’s interests and passions so that they can provide a specialised programme.
The basic documents need to be submitted along with the application form and are considered to be the first step towards seat confirmation. There will be counsellors to guide you through the documentation process.
List of Documents
- Birth Certificate

The final decision will be yours as to whether or not you enrol your child in that school.
