It is the RGS group policy that all applicants are assessed and that all candidates have at least a basic working knowledge of the English language. A detailed ‘Assessment Guide’ outlining the purpose and format of the assessments, as well as useful tips on how to prepare your child is available to download. Please see attachment below.
The School aims to provide a happy, purposeful environment for our pupils and we try to demonstrate this on assessment days by putting candidates at ease and making it a pleasant and enjoyable time.
Once you have submitted your Application Form, our Admissions Secretary will contact you with available group assessment dates and timings. We appreciate that some applicants will be coming from overseas and it is not always possible or convenient to attend an assessment in Qatar. In this instance we can arrange for your child’s current nursery or school to carry out the assessment on our behalf, in accordance with our strict guidelines. If an offer of a place is based upon an external assessment or report, then we reserve the right to reconsider this decision once your child has joined us if we feel that our learning environment and curriculum is not well-suited to your son or daughter. We will discuss this with you in full once we have had the chance to meet your child in our classroom setting.
The Principal may request to meet parents following the assessment stage to discuss the role they will be expected to take in supporting their child’s education. This is also an opportunity for parents to ask any questions about the School.
