CRITERIA FOR ENTRY
Oaktree will welcome students who can demonstrate merit or potential for merit, as well as those who will work hard, show commitment to their studies, try their best and contribute to the school through active participation in a range of activities and residential life. Students will also be welcomed if they can show a good understanding for their age of personal responsibility. If the student is admitted, their test results will also allow the staff to make an initial assessment of general level of academic ability.
What is Merit?
Merit entails responsibility and understanding of obligations. When assessing levels of merit the selection committee will ask itself the question ‘is the student likely either now or at some later time to take full advantage of the opportunity of studying at Oaktree International School?’ If the answer is ‘yes’ or ‘most probably’ then the student is likely to be admitted.
The entrance tests will not seek primarily to examine prior knowledge of facts. Facts are of course important but of no less importance are understanding, critical thinking, and general aptitude. The tests will cover a wide range of disciplines including English, Mathematics, Science and Humanities, but they will focus also on general reasoning and critical thinking.
The Admissions Interview:- The interview is designed to allow the student to introduce themselves to the panel, to discuss their application form, and to present some aspect of their life of which they are proud or which is of greatest interest to them.
This school offers facilities like library, laboratories, well ventilated classrooms & a play area.
