Admissions Calendar

As AGS is an expanding school admissions continue throughout the school year as classes fill.

Admissions for the next academic year are opened in February. Parents of existing pupils are asked to register their enrolment for September and priority for new pupils is given first to those who have a brother or sister already at the school.

Admissions are then open to other families. Admissions will continue until the classes are full then a waiting list will be opened for that class. Up to 5 children will be accepted on the waiting list in case any children drop out.

Application Procedure

Parents can register an interest in the school via the website, by telephone and in person. Administration staff will collect contact details and date of birth of the pupil and an interview or test will be arranged if places are available.

Step 1: Visit by Parents/Guardians
Parent/guardians begin the admissions process by contacting the school secretary on 44980124 Admissions Office to arrange a tour of the school. This first visit is a required part of the admissions process as we want parents to have a good idea of the school, meet the staff and see other children and their workbooks.

We then invite each prospective student to meet with a member of the school team for an assessment visit. Depending on the entry grade, this visit may be in a group or scheduled individually as an entrance assessment.

Step 2: Registration

    For Doha based families we ask that you complete:

  • Registration Admission, with photograph of applicant attached and copies of passport, ID card and health/ immunization records.
  • Pay the non refundable registration fee.
  • Current and previous year’s transcripts, as well as school records from current school, sent directly from your child’s current school

Step 3: Entrance Assessment
Students are invited to attend AGS to complete the entrance assessment for the appropriate year group. Every effort will be made to ensure that the teacher responsible for teaching that particular year group carries out the assessment.

On occasion, we understand that it may not be possible for a child relocating from outside Doha to visit the school for an assessment. In these circumstances, either a conversation by phone or via video conference is possible, or the child may be offered a place on the basis of the application in conjunction with teacher evaluations, records, and conversations with the current school. Each family will be considered on an individual basis.

As with all final admissions decisions, this is entirely at the discretion of the Principal and the school admissions committee.

Parents will usually be notified within 48hours if their child has been successful and will then need to complete health forms, bus forms if applicable, provide relevant documentation and pay the uniform, book, and tuition fees.
