We understand the importance of securing admission into a good school for your child. As a result, ‘admission time’ can be a very stressful period for everyone. We hope that the following FAQs will help you to better understand our admission process.
As you may be aware, there are limited seats available for Nursery candidates across the three campuses. Due to the high volume of applicants for each seat, we have no choice but to refuse the vast majority of candidates who apply. Therefore, if your child is not accepted at this time, please do not take it as a personal reflection of you or your child.
Our teachers are trained to encourage self-esteem and be positive with all candidates. Therefore, if the teacher tells your child how bright he/she is, or how well he/she is doing, that in itself is not a reflection of your child’s performance in the assessment.
We realize children are at different developmental stages and consideration is given to the age of the applicant. We are more interested in determining the overall intellectual and academic potential of the candidate.
Siblings are given a degree of preference but no child is guaranteed admission. However, you can re-apply again at a later stage for higher classes (III, VII and X) if you are still interested in Bay View Academy.
Nursery admissions for all campuses will take place at the Defence campus. Students will be assigned a campus at the school’s discretion. Admitted siblings will be given preference for the same campus as their enrolled sibling.
