School Admission & School Leaving Process of Alpha Cambridge School – Qatar
All the children are welcome to apply, regardless of nationality, ethnicity or religion. Our schools are truly international institutions. Admission to the school depends upon the availability of space in the appropriate age group and the school’s ability to meet the needs of your child. The offer of a place is not solely dependent on this criteria. Further information such as a recent copy of your child’s school report or interview with a member of the senior leadership team may also be required.
Priority will be given to students who have a brother or sister attending the school. Priority is also given to the children of staff, although this is not guaranteed.
Students will not be admitted into a year group outside of their age group unless there are exceptional circumstances.
The prescribed minimum age for admission to Kindergarten is three years of age.
If you withdraw your child from school, you will forfeit the term’s fees, irrespective of the number of days your child has attended during the term.
Please note that from Year 3, there is no automatic promotion of a student from one Grade to the next.
