We accept applications all year round for Kindergarten to S6 and each journey is unique to the individual child and family. However, here is a timeline to help you understand the general route from interest to admission:
Prospective parents and pupils are invited to attend our annual Open Evening. The Open Evening is a great way for families to tour our campus and meet the pupils and staff who make the College such a special place to learn.
Usually, after Open Evening you would send in your application for the next academic year. Applicants from Primary 4 to Senior 6 must also include the ‘Green Blazer Story’ - a short essay about themselves and what they hope to achieve in the Green Blazer - their hobbies and interests, favourite subjects, and ambitions. This should be handwritten and as a guide should be no more than 500 words. Please note, if your child has any additional support needs or supporting documentation, please include it with your application - it is very important to us that we meet the needs of every child.
Before submitting your application, you may also choose to have a personalised tour with our admissions team if you missed Open Evening, or your child may join us for a Taster Day to experience a day as a pupil at the College.
Bursary applications must be submitted in full in December, with all relevant documentation.
Getting to Know You meetings and our Entrance Assessments are held in January. However, if you apply at a different point in the year we will organise this individually.
Applications should be submitted prior to Getting to Know You meetings and Entrance Assessment. Before the Entrance Assessment, we will invite you and your child to meet with one of the senior management team at one of our Getting to Know You meetings to find out more about your child's interests. We will inform you of the date and time of your meeting at the start of January. The Entrance Assessment for P2-S2 will be held on a Saturday in January. Kindergarten and Primary 1 assessments will be held separately in January and April (Kindergarten 1). S3 - S6 applicants do not sit a formal assessment.
Offer letters, along with parental contracts, are sent out in early February. If you choose to accept an offer of a place at the College, please send back your signed parental contract along with the deposit by the date specified on your offer letter.
Kindergarten 1 Entrance Assessments.
Your child will attend an Orientation Day at the College so that they know what to expect when they start at their new school. All new parents are invited to attend a New Parents Meeting, designed to welcome our new families into the Aloysian community.
The first day of term arrives as your child marks the true beginning of his or her own Green Blazer story.
