When will I know if my child has been accepted?

What does the interview entail or involve?
A combination of written, spoken and comprehension. We will test their level of English to ensure that they are capable of understanding the lessons and that their move to study in Wingate will not be detrimental to their educational development. Most students who fail the interview process are due to our staff believing that the child’s level of English would not allow them to follow lessons properly and would negatively impact their progress. Most students then go on to do intensive English courses and reapply the following year. We can keep them on the waiting list if the parents choose.
We also will check the child’s attitude and behaviour and ensure that they will contribute to a positive experience for everyone whilst they are at Wingate.
How long will my child be on the waiting list?
We will do our best to give you a realistic expectation based on the current waiting list at that time
What level of English is required to attend Wingate School?
We have to ensure that your child is capable of following the lessons correctly and that studying at Wingate will not be detrimental to their educational development
