As a high quality international school, admission to Brainworks is highly competitive. Student acceptance is based upon age requirements, recommendations, and placement testing.
Ages and Grade Levels at Brainworks
Age requirements are driven by the target age for graduation at IGCSE levels of 16 years old and “A” levels at 18 years. Candidates who will be more than 21 years old at the completion of “A” levels examinations will not be accepted.
Age requirements must be met. Developmental age norms are preferable, however, target maximum age limits will be carefully considered as a guideline for admission.
Timing of Admissions
New admissions to the school occur in May and June through placement testing. Late admissions are considered only under exceptional circumstances, most often in the case of new arrivals to the country and/or the city.
Potential candidates for jumping’ or ‘skipping’ a level must meet the following criteria:
Note: Grade skipping puts social and emotional pressure on children who may lack the maturity of their older classmates.
Students who have attended 2 years of Brainworks Preschool and are enrolled in the Primary Preparatory Program are expected to continue into the primary school at Primary 1 with the approval/recommendation of their school’s Head of School/ Head of Academics (HOS/HOA).
Students who have attended 1 year of Brainworks Preschool are expected to take either kindergarten graduation examination or placement test before admittance to the primary level.
