ADMISSIONS POLICY

Bloomsbury International School Hatyai is a non-selective school with English as our main language of instruction. We support families admitting their children and ensure they understand the admissions procedure clearly and where possible we offer translation into Thai to facilitate the process.

Our goal is:

  • to admit students seamlessly so they are able to move into the school community successfully;
  • to admit students throughout the school year;
  • to support the admission of student applicants with Special Educational Needs (SEN) and English as an Additional Language (EAL) where possible and offer extra support and guidance with this process;
  • to always place student applicants in their chronological age groups and ability levels.

Applications for admission are accepted throughout the year. No official decision on an application is given until all the relevant documents have been received. Families seeking admission for their child(ren) are advised to apply as early as possible as certain classes fill up quickly. All new families are encouraged to visit the school’s website to learn more about the school, and to download all admission materials.

As it is likely that student applicants may have a variety of prior educational experiences their placement within the school may be discussed at application. Unless there are extenuating circumstances all student applicants will be placed according to their chronological placement within the UK system. It will be acceptable for a student to placed within 1 year of the correct UK chronological placement if the circumstances of the application so merit.
