Offers and Over-subscription criteria
Once the interview and the assessment have been completed, a place will be offered to all eligible candidates, subject to availability. If no places are currently available to eligible candidates, they will be placed on a waiting list. Parents of children who are not eligible will be informed as soon as possible.
Where classes are over-subscribed, offers of places will not be issued on a first come first served basis (i.e. in chronogical order). Applications for the last available places will be considered within a reasonable time period and they will be offered on the basis of a family’s long-term commitment to the school and its ethos. To assist this process (and in the case of oversubscription in the school) the criteria below will be used to allocate places. Please note that these are only guidelines, and judgments will be made considering the criteria as a whole :
a) Family reunification.
b) Siblings in the school.
c) Commitment to Charter of Principles.
d) Commitment to keeping children in Agnes School until Year 6.
e) Acadmic results.
Incomplete dossiers will not be studied.
In the case of a renewal of registration and an already child established, only complete the “re-enrollment form”.
– After reviewing the record, the Secretariat will contact the family to schedule an appointment to introduce the school to parents and prospective pupils. A second appointment will take place with Mrs. SEGERS, Headmistress of the school, who will explain the rules.
– A response will be sent to parents by post following their appointment with the Headmistress
– The registration will be effective after sending your confirmation accompanied by the transfer of a EUR 500 deposit, which will be returned upon departure of the child from the school (subject to schooling costs being paid and up-to-date) and which is non-refundable in case of cancellation of a registration

Our school offers a place, subject to availability, to any child whose parents agree with the Charter of Educational Principles and who, in the opinion of the school, can benefit from the education provided, given the educational facilities, support and financial resources available at the time.
Within the limits of available funds, the school relies on ARDEA Foundation grants to help families who do not have sufficient means. Parents are invited to submit a bursary form to the ARDEA Foundation.
We welcome pupils with physical disabilities, provided that our site can cope with them. However, we advise parents of children with special educational needs or physical disabilities to discuss their child’s requirements with the Headmistress at interview, or before they sit the assessment, to determine whether we can make adequate provision for them. We will discuss thoroughly with parents the adjustments that can reasonably be made.
