Application and Enrolment Process
Admission to The Winstedt School is determined through a thoughtful application process that ensures a good fit for both your child and our community.
Winstedt offers rolling enrolment to students who can benefit from our individualised approach and small student-to-teacher ratio.
Our learning approach was developed for students with an average IQ or above, and does not cater to students with primary emotional or behavioural difficulties. Where students have emotional or behavioural challenges as a result of educational frustration, support can be provided.
The visit provides the opportunity to see the facilities, get a glimpse into a classroom and become acquainted with our School’s curriculum and culture. We encourage families to bring the child along for the tour so that they can get a feel for the school and we can conduct an informal assessment for suitability.
Step A: Register Online
Begin by registering on our: Application Website
Step B: Document Submission
The online application platform will guide you through how to upload the required documents.
1. Student's birth certificate
2. Student's passport and identity card
3. Passport sized photograph of the student
4. Parents' passports and identity cards
5. Immunisation records
6. School reports (at least 2 years preferred)
7. Copies of standardised test scores
8. Recent Speech and Language and/or Occupational Therapy evaluations. The evaluation/s should have taken place within the last 18 months.
9. Most recent Educational Psychological assessment. This report must include results from the WISC-IV or V cognitive assessment as well as achievement scores. The report must be dated within the last 24 months.
Based on the information provided in the Application Form and following your visit, the School will decide if your child can proceed with a 1-3-day class trial. A trial is an integral component of our Admissions process. It allows your child to try us out and gives us the opportunity to assess your child for a potential fit.
In some situations, the trial can be waived based on application documents and students can be given a conditional placement.
Private Education Institution (PEI) Contracts
The Winstedt School is an accredited Private Education Institution (PEI) and students must complete the PEI Student Contract. It is mandatory for all students to have a valid and signed contract before attending any classes as per Committee for Private Education (CPE) regulation. Failure to complete the PEI Student Contract and pay the fees as stipulated in the PEI Student Contract will result in the forfeiture of the student’s placement offer.
Once the contract has been signed, parents will receive the invoice for the school fees. Subsequent school fees will be due according to the fee schedule found in the “Fee Structure” section. Fee refunds are found under the guidelines set forth in the PEI Student Contract.
This application is made on the understanding that the child has a basic command of English.
If information relevant to the extent of the child’s educational, emotional, social or health needs has not been made apparent to the School on the date of admission, the School reserves the right to ask parents to withdraw the child, based on the School’s assessment (in its sole discretion) that the School in unable to meet the child’s needs.
The School reserves the right to allocate places at its discretion in special circumstances. Enrolment will be considered as vacancies become available.
