Learning principles

Learning support staff can assist K1 to Grade 12 students. The school has a limited ability to support students with highly specialised needs.

Support for gifted and talented students

UWCSEA offers differentiation in the classroom and staff have undertaken training in this area, but the College does not have a specific 'gifted and talented' programme.

Admissions

Can students join after academic year begins

Yes

Students aged 4-14 (K1 - Grade 8) can join up to and including the start of Term 2 (January).

Admission process

Any test results are used as a guide for subject selection: they do not play a role in the process of allocating places to eligible candidates. It depends on the available reports and in High School, the subjects students would like to take.

Admission and language criteria

In Grades 2-8, if existing reports are insufficient or not translated students may need to sit an assessment. In High School (Grades 9, 10 and 11 entry) students sit maths, English, general aptitude (DAT's), and, if applicable, their mother tongue ('Language A' or 'Language B' in the IB Diploma).
