Admission and Registration

General Information

Ambrosoli is a non-selective school which aims to educate students from the local and international communities within Uganda, providing where possible for the special needs of all its students.

Before starting at Ambrosoli International School, the following initial documentation is required:

  1. Completed Students Application Form *Application Form
  2. Enrollment Agreement Form, including medical information for the student. *click here to download
  3. Confidential School Report Form from the previous school, (only applicable if transferring from another school).

Once a provisional place has been offered, the student together with their parents/carers/guardians are met by the Head of School. This is to ensure that the school can meet the needs of each student as well as to assess the students ability to benefit from the academic programme offered at Ambrosoli. Parents will be obliged to abide by the stipulations listed in the Enrolment Agreement.

All new students will be required to provide various documents to support their application, including 2 passport photographs, a copy of their birth certificate or a copy of their passport including the visa page (unless an East African national) and a transfer report from the previous school. Students will also be required to provide medical records of all inoculations received as well as lists of any allergies.

During the interview with the Head of School, parents are encouraged to ask questions about the school. The Head of School will also use the interview as a way to get to know the needs of the student and read previous reports. If extra learning support is required, then the student will be assessed before entry by the ILN Coordinator. If a student has English as an additional language, then the ILN coordinator may make an additional assessment. If such support is required, then the placement would only be given if the parent agreed to the additional support. Ambrosoli International School will offer a place to children whose needs can be well matched within our school setting.

When all the necessary documents have been received by the School and finance details have been addressed, children may start in their assigned class. The start date will be agreed on by the Head of School and the family.

Children can be enrolled throughout the year, according to availability. All Seedlings children need to be toilet trained before starting school. Our classes are small to give full attention to each child. We aim to keep our class sizes at an optimum level of 16 and a maximum of 18 pupils in Reception classes and an optimum of 18 and maximum of 20 in Year 1- 6 classes.

Year 1 and 2 make up our Key Stage 1 group and Years 3-6 make up our Key Stage 2 group. These groupings correspond with the units of study and assessment in the British Curriculum.
