Step 5: Admissions Decision

There are three possible outcomes:

1. If your child’s application is successful and we have available places in the appropriate class, we will offer you a place at our school.

When you accept the offer and the agreed upon starting date, you will pay a deposit to secure your child’s place. See payment information here.

If your child does not start at the agreed time, the deposit cannot be refunded. See conditions here.

2. If your child’s application is successful but we do not have a place available in the appropriate class, your child will join our waiting pool. 

3. If we do not believe the applicant would benefit from an educational programme at OIS, or OIS is not able to meet their educational needs, your application will be declined. (The application fee is nonrefundable, even if we are not able to offer your child a place at OIS.)
