Step 2: Inquiry and Application
If you decide you would like to enrol your child at AIS, please complete an Application Form.
Parents will be provided with an Enrolment Pack containing everything you need to progress to the interview stage. The Enrolment Pack is available from the school Enrolments Team.
Please submit the completed forms to the Enrolments Team along with the required documentation (passports, report cards etc).
Please note that in order to progress to the interview stage, it is essential that all forms must be completed IN FULL and all the required documentation must be provided (see the checklist in the Enrolment Pack). We understand there may be some documentation that is unavailable at the time of enrolment (eg: UAE residency VISA); the Enrolments Team will ascertain if sufficient information has been provided for you to progress to the interview stage.
- For international enrolments from outside the UAE, it is important parents of children enrolling into Grade 2 or above finalise the transfer certificate and reports cards attestation process PRIOR to leaving the country they are residing in. Detailed information can be found on the Transfer Certificate and Report Card document in the Enrolment Pack.
Step 3: Enrolment Interview Booking
Once all the required documentation has been completed, submitted and checked by the Enrolments Team, the next step is to arrange for an interview with a School Administrator.
To request an interview, complete the Interview Booking Form.
No interview will be booked until ALL of the above is completed.
The Enrolments Team will arrange for an interview and will notify you of your interview time. You will also receive a confirmation call 24 hours prior to the scheduled interview.
Step 4: Enrolment Interview (mandatory).
The parent and enrolling student are required to attend the interview with a school administrator. In some circumstances, this may also require the student to undergo a Diagnostic Assessment.
The purpose of the interview is a chance for us to get to know you better and to ensure there is a mutual alignment regarding the school's expectations of work ethic, behavior, values, morals etc.
At the end of the interview, you will be required to complete the ‘Form: Enrolment Agreement and Acceptance’. Note: Signing this form is NOT confirmation of approval . The HoS will decide on the outcome of an enrolment application.
Students enrolling in Grade 10, 11 or 12 must also complete the SET Plan as part of the subject selection process and followed up with an appointment with the Secondary Guidance Officer upon commencement of enrolment. Due to the SET Plan requirement, the interview for students in Grade 10 to 12 will take approximately 60 mins.
Interviews for students enrolling in ELC to Grade 9 will take approximately 30 mins. If a diagnostic assessment is required, an additional 30 mins will be required.
Step 5: Acceptance.
The Head of School will decide on the outcome of the enrolment application, with parents notified in writing within 48 hours of completing the interview and/or assessment of their successful or unsuccessful application.
If you are accepted, the non-refundable Registration Fee of AED1,150 will be required within one week to secure the enrolment. If the Registration Fee is not paid at this time, the position may be offered to another applicant.
All enrolments are subject to approval by the Sharjah Private Education Authority (SPEA) and the UAE Ministry of Education (MOE).
