The Head and other members of the educational team review the file and make the final decision on acceptance. We then inform you of the decision via an official email and if your child has been accepted, you will be asked to confirm our offer of acceptance within five working days.

Please note that applications for learning support, assisted places, or those involving other special circumstances may take longer. Feel free to contact us at any time if you have questions about your child(ren)'s status in the admissions process.

Step 3: Preparing for the first day of school

Once you have confirmed acceptance for your child(ren), we will be in touch about everything you need to know for your first day at ISB. 

* Please note that it is essential for us to have your correct email address so this information can be sent to you.

If you have questions about any aspect of this process, please contact our Admissions team immediately. We will be more than happy to assist you.
