GEMS Wellington International School prides itself on an admission policy that does not discriminate against any child or family. All children are welcome to apply to GEMS Wellington International School, regardless of nationality, ethnicity or religion.
GEMS Wellington International School is a truly international institution which has limited spaces for children with additional learning needs. However it does not have the provision for children with severe or complex educational needs nor is it able to provide at this time, support for non-english speakers.
All students from Year 4 to Year 10 are required to sit age relevant placement test to ensure that he / she prepared for the high quality education on offer at Wellington International School.
Where applications are from overseas, the child's latest school report is used instead of an interview and as a result of that scrutiny it might be that then we ask for a test to be taken. In such cases GEMS Wellington International School will contact the child's existing school to courier placement tests so that the children may undertake these in their own school. The expense of this action is to be borne by the parents of the child making the application.
Offer of a place is not solely on entrance test / interview alone and all parents should provide GEMS Wellington International School with the most recent copy of their child's school resport when submitting an application form. Whilst GEMS Wellington International School is proud of high academic standards, applications from students who excel in other areas such a sports, music, drama and the arts are always welcomed.
