We are home to 1700 students from 40 nationalities. We are inclusive and celebrate our diversity by welcoming students of all faiths.
Welcome and thank you for considering St Joseph’s Institution (SJI) International as a school for your children. We recognise that the choice of school is one of the most important decisions any parent has to make for their child. We invite parents to contact the Admissions Office to arrange a visit to the school. This can be done through a private visit or as part of our Open House morning on 4 March 2017. Registrations for the Open House will be available on our website 2 weeks before the event.
General information about SJI International can be found in our Prospectus.
Admissions for the current academic year are accepted and welcomed throughout the year, contingent on space being available and students meeting the entry requirements for the School. There is no deadline for the submission of registration forms, however if a course is oversubscribed, applications may be closed; see Table 2 below for a list of places available. In most year groups, providing that places are available, students are accepted throughout the school year. Parents are, however, advised to initiate the formal admission process at the earliest opportunity by contacting our Admissions Office.
Admissions for the 2018 academic year open on 6 March 2017 at 7:30 am. No applications (including e-mailed applications) will be accepted before the designated time. Expected vacancies for 2018 are detailed in Table 1.

Please read our Admissions Policy. By signing the Application Form, parents agree to the stated terms and conditions of the Admissions Policy.
The Admissions Process is as follows:
Wait List - Students are placed on a Wait List if there are no definite vacancies available. The Wait Listed students will be allocated a number and the parents will be informed. The Admissions Office make subsequent offers in numerical order. Students at numbers 1- to 3 will be informed of their position as soon as there is a change. Students stay on the Wait List for at least the first term of the Academic Year. We do not roll over applicants to the next Grade and Year.
Reserve List – Students on the Reserve List are not placed in numerical order and will be reviewed periodically only to increase the numbers of the Wait List. Students stay on the Reserve List for at least the first term of the Academic Year. We do not roll over applicants to the next Grade and Year.
The compulsory Admissions Tests take place from 12 noon to 4pm on a date determined by our Admissions Office, in consultation with parents and the Principal. Students must expect to be in school for up to a total of four hours (including the Interview).
The Admissions Test consists of the following:
Each applicant will have an informal 15-20 minute interview with the Principal/ Member of the Senior Team immediately after the Admissions Test.
Our Admissions Office will inform parents of the outcome of the Admissions process as soon as a decision is made. If the applicant is offered a place, parents will be asked to confirm acceptance within the designated time period (usually 2 weeks). Acceptance of a place is only confirmed upon payment of the Registration Fee and Security Deposit. The Registration Fee is non-refundable. Refund of the Security Deposit is subject to the notice period as outlined on both the Application Form and Fees page of the website.
Payment of the Term 1 Tuition Fees must be received 12 weeks prior to the start of the Academic Year. Once paid, school fees are non-refundable.
When a student is transferring from one international school to another, and we receive notification from the current school of outstanding financial obligations we will delay the student’s admission until a satisfactory arrangement to settle the account has been made.
