Enquiry, Assessment and Registration Procedures

  1. Appointment

An introductory meeting is held with parents who are interested in sending their child to Chiswick House School and St Martin’s College. A representative from the Registrations Office will meet with the parents and the child.

Parents are requested to bring their child’s latest school report to the meeting. The school report is to be provided in English.

  1. Assessment procedures and selection process

In order to establish a child’s potential to cope with the academic requirements of the programme, the school assesses pupils in the following manner prior to registration.

The assessment for pupils applying to join the school at entry levels 2, 3, 4 or 5 takes the form of an entry assessment questionnaire which Parents/Guardians need to complete.

The assessment for students applying to join the school at entry levels 6 and above takes the form of a placement test in English, Mathematics and Maltese. The Maltese placement test does not apply for international applicants.

Parents must submit a copy of their child’s latest school report either together with the entry assessment questionnaire (Level 2 to Level 5) or on the day of the placement test (Level 6 to Level 11) whichever is applicable. The school report is to be produced on an official letterhead and accompanied by the contact details of the Head of School.  The report must be in English – if not, an official translation must be produced prior to registration.

The Registrations Office at Chiswick House School and St Martin’s College reserves the right to contact the previous school of the student.

  1. Documentation required for registration
