Children who are six by the 1st of October 2017 are admitted to Grade 1. We admit students to grades 1 – 9 throughout the academic year.

For admission to all grade levels the following documents are needed:

  • The Online Registration Form to TIS, available here
  • A written application to the Principal. Download it here
  • A copy of the child’s birth certificate.
  • Child´s report card, in English, from the previous school or childcare institution.

All documents (except the Online Registration Form) should be sent to the school’s e-mail address

The initial grade placement of a student is based on the student´s birthday. A four-week observation period shall be applied after admitting a student, during which the teachers, in close co-operation with the parents, evaluate the initial grade placement suitability for an individual student. The initial grade placement is approved, and in some cases adjusted by the Teachers’ council, generally within four weeks of admission.
