All non-native English-speaking students applying for admissions to Grade 6 and above will sit for an APTIS test to assess their English level in all four language skills – speaking, writing, reading and listening. Students whose English is below the required grade entry level may not be admitted or may be given an offer conditional on additional English language tuition being undertaken outside school.
