Admissions' Procedure

We welcome applications for boys and girls of all school ages. The ICS seeks to help each pupil according to his or her needs, and will not discriminate against any applicant on the grounds of nationality, religious persuasion or disability.

School Fees

Application fee

A non-refundable application fee of JD 150 (USD 212) is required for each individual pupil upon submitting the application form. You may pay this fee upon your arrival at the school.

Registration fee

A non-refundable fee, required for each individual pupil, is due in full before the pupil joins the school. Pupils joining in Nursery and Reception will pay half of the registration fee on joining and the second half will be paid when the pupil joins Year 1.

Tuition fee

A minimum of one term’s fees must be paid in order for your child to start attending school. Two weeks after joining, the remainder of the fees should be paid in full, or post-dated cheques for the correct amount should be submitted to the Finance Department.

You can find more information about all school fees in the School Fees page.

How to Apply

Primary School Applicants

Assessment will not normally be required before admission. However, we ask parents to bring copies of any previous school reports, and to highlight any special ability or learning difficulty encountered in school so far.

Secondary School Applicants

An assessment in English, Mathematics, and Science will normally be required for any pupil applying for years 7-11 (ages 11-16). Applicants for AS and A-Level courses may choose from a range of subjects, and may be asked to take a relevant assessment paper in order that they may demonstrate a sound grounding in their preferred options. The ICS will apply to the student’s current school in all cases. An appointment to meet with the appropriate Head of Secondary is required before acceptance for all A-Level students.

Reservation

The school must operate within proper educational limits, and must aim to provide a positive yield for all pupils and parents. We reserve the right to refuse entry:

  • If the year group appropriate to the applicant is already full.

  • If in our professional judgment, the applicant is not suited to the programme which the school offers.

  • If in our professional judgment, the applicant needs a level of resources and individual support which would deprive other pupils in the school.
