Choosing a new school can be daunting prospect, both for prospective pupils and their parents. When that school is in a different country, there will undoubtedly be many questions to be answered before a decision can be made as to which school is best for your child.
If you are a non-UK resident and would like your child to attend St Margaret’s School, the application process is as follows:
To express an initial interest in St Margaret’s School, you should contact the Admissions Office on email@example.com or on (01224) 584466.
A registration fee of £50 is required from all applicants. A passport photo and most recent school report should be provided at the same time as submitting your registration form;
Applicants who mark that they are not an EEA resident on the registration form will be asked to bring in a copy of their visa or permit to stay/study in the UK as well as a copy of the child’s passport .
Younger children (nursery age and younger junior years) can often have permission to study in the UK through parents’ visas. A copy of this visa would also be required. If a child does not have a visa, we can apply for one on their behalf as we have granted Tier 4 status by the UK Border Agency;
Assessments are dealt with on an individual basis depending on where you are currently living. You may be visiting Aberdeen in the near future, or we can arrange a skype call or send an assessment to your child’s current school. We are flexible in how we assess candidates depending on circumstances and happy to discuss;
Once a place has been offered and accepted, we require a copy of the enrolment form which is your contract of agreement with the school, along with a £200 deposit. The enrolment deposit is returnable at the end of a pupil’s schooling or can be donated to the school.
