Apply for a Place

Please complete and return the Application Form. You can download, complete and return the form, collect a form from the school to complete and return or complete the online application. We also require a copy of your child’s passport and a copy of the latest school or nursery report. There is a non-refundable application fee of AED 500.

Once we have received the application for your child, we will send you an invitation to bring your child for an assessment.

Assessments

All our assessments are age appropriate and are designed to help explore your child’s strengths and personal qualities, readiness and ability to access our curriculum. The information from the assessments helps our teaching staff by allowing us to get to know each child before they arrive for their first day in the classroom.

We hold assessments every Wednesday from 12 noon until 4.00 pm. We also hold assessments on Saturdays where required. Children applying for Grades 1 – 5 will sit a CAT4 test.

Assessments for Pre-KG and KG1 are play based while the assessment for KG2 is undertaken informally by a member of our Primary Years team. Wherever possible, we try to assess KG applicants on the day of their tour (if the child is in attendance).

Acceptance of Offer

Once you have received an offer, you have seven days in which to reply. To accept the offer, you will need to return the required documentation and pay the initial deposit. Once this is in place, your child will be enrolled for the forthcoming academic year.

Ambassador International Academy is committed to inclusion.

We seek to ensure that every single child is adequately supported socially and emotionally as well as educationally. Some children may require additional support. It is important that the school is aware of any known disability or special educational need which may affect a child’s ability to participate in the admissions process and then take full advantage of the education provided by the school. Every attempt will be made by the school to accommodate the needs of applicants who require support and for whom the school can adequately provide. The Inclusion Team will be involved in the admissions process from the outset and it may be that a member of the Team is involved in the assessment for your child. Following the assessment, the Admissions Office will contact you to discuss the support required for your child.
