The Vine School has a 6-step enrolment process:

  1. Research - If you are considering our school for your children, the first step is to learn about the kind of education we offer. We recommend reading "For the Children's Sake" by Susan Schaeffer Macaulay or "When Children Love to Learn" by Elaine Cooper. You can also research Simply Charlotte Mason or view a video link.
  2. Complete an enquiry  - If The Vine School offers what you want, then please click on this link, or the link on our home page, and complete the enquiry form to begin the process.
  3. Come for coffee and a chat - After we receive your enquiry, we will contact you to arrange for you to visit and chat to our admissions officer over a cup or tea or coffee.  Application forms and other information will be available at that meeting. 
  4. Apply - Complete the application form and submit with supporting documents and application fee.
  5. Orientation visit - After processing your application, we will arrange for your child(ren) to attend school for between one and three days of orientation and assessment. The assessment is to ensure that children are ready for the proposed grade - academically, emotionally, socially and physically. As we are an English-medium school, children should have a good grasp of English or parents must be willing to provide extra language tuition at their own expense.  We will also arrange an interview with the parent(s) to discuss the best way forward for their child.
  6. Enrolment - Once the placement assessment is complete, the school will let you know if a place will be offered. Applicants are considered based on space availability and preference will be given to families who want all their children at The Vine School. If no space is available in a particular class, pupils will be placed on a waiting list.  Please note that the school does not accept more than 16 children in a class.

As an independent Christian school, it teaches according to its Christian convictions, and will not promote, teach or practice any religion or conviction other than its own.
