Admissions FAQ’S

When is the application deadline?

We are still accepting applications for entry in September 2017.


Will you be offering school tours?

The school is currently being refurbished and will be ready for summer 2017.  As a result, we are delighted to be offering Open House events, which will take place off-site during the refurbishment period. These will be highly visual, informative and welcoming evenings giving you a real experience of the Wetherby-Pembridge ethos. They will also be wonderfully social occasions where you will have the chance to ask any questions you might have, meet our Head of School and our dedicated team. Please consult our calendar for dates.


When are your Open House events and do I need to submit an application before I attend?

We held two Open House events on Wednesday October 5 and Thursday October 27. Please consult our calendar for 2017 dates. An application does not need to be submitted prior to attending an Open House and these events are for adults only.


Do you require the AABL (Admission Assessment for Beginning Learners) or the ECAA (Early Childhood Admission Assessment)?

We do not require this formal testing for entry into our Nursery Program, Prekindergarten, Kindergarten and Grade 1.  From Grade 2 to Grade 5 we are selective and the students will be required to sit formal assessments in English, Mathematics and Verbal Reasoning.


What should I do if I need to reschedule my appointments?

We understand that plans may change due to unforeseen circumstances.  Please contact us by email so that we can work to reschedule your appointment at a mutually convenient time.  If your child is sick and unable to make their play session, we will do our best to find an alternative play session.


What is the application process for international families?

Our application process for international students is the same as it is for all other applicants.  Please note that we do require all applicants to come for a parent meeting and a child play session.  We will work with you to schedule these appointments to accommodate your travel plans.

Will you offer a Financial Aid Package?

We believe in supporting diversity in our school.  To this end, we are already implementing plans for our financial aid provision.  We expect this will become accessible in the third year of the school.
