Testing and Interviews
Preschool Program
Parents will be asked to come for a brief visit once the application is received.

Junior Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 1
Junior Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 1 applicants will attend an individual session by appointment to complete early literacy and math assessments to evaluate readiness for our programme. The assessment is child-friendly and done on a laptop with an adult monitoring the process. The school will contact the families of the applicants to schedule the session.

Grades 2 to 11
Applicants to these grade levels will participate in a Saturday morning standardised testing session administered at the school. The school will contact you to schedule a session.

The Cognitive Abilities Test (CAT4)  is an assessment that is designed to help students and their teachers understand how they learn and what their academic potential might be. It assesses how students think in areas that are known to make a difference to learning. Tasks involve thinking about shapes and patterns (Non-Verbal Reasoning), words (Verbal Reasoning), numbers (Quantitative Reasoning) and some questions are answered by mentally generating and transforming visual images (Spatial Ability).

If you have any queries, please contact our Admissions Director Mrs Rose Taylor at rtaylor@lcis.bs.

Interview for Grades 6 and above
An interview for these applicants will be scheduled. Students and parents are involved in this process.

English as an Additional Language Proficiency
LCIS is able to provide some support to students with varying levels of English Proficiency. For non-native speakers, an assessment will be done to determine the student’s baseline level in speaking, listening, reading and comprehension. The school will contact families to schedule an appointment if this test is needed.
