RBIS Rasami British International School is committed to accepting students that can benefit from being educated at our school. We are particularly interested in recruiting children of good character, with an inquisitive nature who can make a positive contribution to the school’s community.
The school’s admissions policy does not discriminate on the grounds of race, religion, gender or nationality.
Upon contacting the school an appointment will be arranged with the Admissions Officer. The Admissions Officer will take prospective parents and students on a school tour and will answer any questions. A subsequent meeting and interview will then be arranged with the Head of Phase and/or the Headmaster.
Although new students are expected to begin their studies in August it is not unusual for children to join the school mid-year. The academic curriculum to be studied will be agreed at interview with the Head of Phase and/or Headmaster and will, where necessary, be informed by the results of diagnostic placement tests in English and/or Mathematics. Secondary candidates will have Initial Assessments (IAs) in English and Mathematics. Primary candidates will have an IA in English. These assessments are purely diagnostic so as to allow educators to determine the academic standard, the degree and type of support required (if relevant) and provides a baseline from which we can then measure progress. New entrants in Key Stage 3 and 4 should also expect to meet with specialist subject teachers especially when they hope to enter examination classes.
The following documents will need to be provided by parents:
- A completed application form (available at the school); medical data (including allergies) is included in this form.
- A photocopy of the pupil’s passport and/or other official documents certifying nationality.
- A transcript/report, in English, of academic performance from the student’s previous school (as a minimum this should be for the previous 12 months).
- A letter of reference from the school previously attended which gives us more information on academic potential, sociability, participation in school activities, etc.
- A photocopy of a currently valid residence permit.
N.B. Parents of children in need of learning support should also submit the written results of diagnostic testing as well as the learning support information form. All non-native English speakers may be asked to sit a diagnostic English test. Younger pupils may be given an oral test instead.

An application for admission may be made prior to an appointment with the Head of Phase and/or Headmaster but the school cannot make a confirmed offer of a place until a prospective student has completed the interview process.

The school is open throughout the year, however we strongly advise you to visit the school during the term time so that you can fully experience what we can offer at RBIS with our current students and staff. This is the best way to get a true flavour of RBIS. The visit will also enable you to speak with teachers, the Head of Phase and/or the Headmaster to discuss your child and your thoughts for the future.
