Grade 1 entrants should be aged 6-7 years old on the day of enrollment. A child under the age of 6-7 years cannot yet enter Grade 1 even if his/her placement exam shows that his/her academic ability is that of Grade 1 already. If a parent insists for the Grade level of their child other than the recommendation of the school, the school and the parent should enter into a special memorandum of agreement addressing this problem.

As required by IB, students will be assigned to each grade according to their age and not ability. The age range is as follows:

Daycare Program        - 2 years old

Early Years Program (EYP)

Nursery             - 3 years old

Preschool         - 4 years old

Kindergarten    - 5 years old

Primary Years Program (PYP)

Grade 1           - 6 years old

Grade 2           - 7 years old

Grade 3           - 8 years old

No special memorandum can be agreed between the school and the parent/guardian to have a student assigned a grade based on his/her ability. Each teacher within Fredfort has been assigned to adopt a differentiated approach to teaching and learning, therefore, different needs will be met within the classroom with regards to student ability.

II. Official Enrollment

  1. Students are only considered officially enrolled once they have completed all the requirements for admission.
  2. Officially enrolled students shall be given the school ID and uniform on the same day of official enrollment.
  3. Only officially enrolled students will be accorded all privileges and services as stipulated in the enrollment contract.
  4. Unofficially enrolled students are given a week to complete their requirements. Failure to comply within the given period means the student can no longer be accepted in the school and payments made can no longer be refunded.
  5. All students together with their parents/ guardians upon official enrollment should follow the rules, regulations, and policies of the school as stated in this handbook.

III. Enrollment procedure  

The following needs to be conducted by admissions in order for a student to be fully enrolled:

  1. All of the documents outlined in section 2.1, requirements for admission, must be submitted upon enrollment.
  2. All fees including deposit fee, registration fee, capital fee and tuition fee must be paid fully. Additional fees such as uniform, confectionary and van service must also be paid in full.
  3. The student will be required to take an entrance examination and interview as outlined in section 2.2.1.
  4. The parent and student together will have to participate in an induction PowerPoint presentation. The presentation will educate parents and students about Asia-Pacific Fredfort international school as well the IB curriculum.
  5. If the student has received a scholarship, the scholarship form must be signed by all parties with the original being kept with the school and a copy made for the parents.
  6. ID’s for both the student and parents shall be prepared and handed to them.
  7. All original documents and receipt of payment will be given to the parents who will signal that the student is now fully enrolled within the school and will receive the full privileges offered at the school.

If the above procedure is not followed for whatever reason then the student will not be considered as fully enrolled, therefore will be unable to receive any of the rights and privileges offered by the school.
