The School Admissions Officer
Mrs Angela Dakin School Admissions Officer
T: +357 2596 3888 / 8003 / 8036
Please download OES Form 100/101 from the key documents section above.
Please complete Form 101 and forward to our Admissions Officer as soon as possible. ([email protected])
Mrs Dakin will review the Educational Supportability Assessment Request Form (101) and contact you should she require any further information. This will give you opportunity to find out a little bit more about the school and ask any questions you may have.
We will contact your child’s current school setting for further information. In most cases we will then be able to issue a Confirmation of Educational Supportability.
Please note that the Confirmation of Educational Supportability Certificate can only be issued during term time and is only valid for six months from the date of issue.
Please ensure that you apply for your child’s place at St John’s School in time and aim to send your completed form by the last Friday in May for a September start.
If your child has additional medical or Special Educational Needs, a MASO may need to take place before an Educational Supportability can be considered (OES Form 107). In this case, please aim to send in your admissions forms by the end of April for a September start as a MASO can take up to 6-9 weeks. Any admissions after this date, which require a MASO, may result in children not receiving a Confirmation of Educational Supportability for a September start.
The MOD has introduced a new Admission System – MOD Assessment for Supportability Overseas (MASO). This requires that certain information must be supplied by the parent and the prospective pupils’ current school before a Confirmation of Educational Supportability certificate can be issued, and a place offered.
Mrs Dakin will be able to advise you on what information is required.
Once the Confirmation of Educational Supportability has been issued it must be forwarded to the Families Section:
