And Say: Oh My Lord Increase me in Knowledge (Qur’an 20:114)
The School has policies in place and the Head teacher will be responsible for the allocation of places to students at Olive. Our aim is to ensure that every child has fair access to the school.
An application form for the school can be obtained by calling into the school, or alternatively downloading from the website. All applicants will be required to submit an application form with a copy of the student’s current passport / Birth certificate and a current school report. Unfortunately if the application is unsuccessful none of the items can be returned.
To process any application there is a NON REFUNDABLE admission fee of £150.
Usually around summer term, the prospective student and their parent will have the opportunity to see the premises, meet staff, and ask any questions about the curriculum provision in the school. On this day they will also pick up all their equipment including two sets of uniform, which has to be paid for at the time of the admission at a cost of £80.
Parents are advised that admission is granted to prospective pupils in the following order of priority:
· Pupils with sisters/brothers at the school.
· First come, first serve basis.
If students are placed on a waiting list parent/guardian will be informed of their position on the list. No priority shall be given to parents wishing to enrol their child after withdrawing from the waiting list, after refusing a place, or, having withdrawn their child partway through the academic year. In all of these cases the application will be treated as a new one, and so, the applicant will be placed at the end of the waiting list.
NB. Currently Olive Secondary School is unable to cater for pupils with Special Educational Needs (SEN) and for whom English is an additional language (EAL). Hence, such applicants will not be granted admission.
