Policy & Procedures
Applications for admission are accepted from all interested parties throughout the year. Students applying for admission must complete all procedures before being considered for admission. The school reserves the right to exclude students for academic or disciplinary reasons or to require special supplementary measures at parental expense. In selecting new students, the admissions committee places great importance on the applicant’s potential, indicated by testing, teacher recommendation and past performance in prior schools. Other qualities are given significant consideration as well. CGB is looking for well-rounded students of good character, whose families embrace the values and mission of CGB.
It is school policy that the representation of any one nationality within the student body should not exceed 50%. The admissions process must respect this proportionality. In all other considerations, all students are eligible for admission if it is believed the school can meet their particular needs and providing there is space available.
Students from Year 2 and above seeking admission to the school are required to present English and Mathematics tests, and an ELS test if English is not their first language. Students from Year 4 and above will also need to complete the CATs4, cognitive ability test. Children who are seeking entry into Nursery, Reception or Year 1 will also need to complete an admissions process. This will involve working with a member of the Educational Achievement Department. The process includes observation of fine and gross motor ability, visual perception, language and auditory skills. The results will be used to track progress made by the students during their time in the school. Parents and students will be invited to an interview with one of our psychologists.
