The Northfields International School admissions team is committed to helping international and local families understand who we are and what we do. This is part of an ongoing determination to help each family identify the school that is the best possible match for them and their child.
Every family is different and has a unique story to share. It would be our pleasure to hear yours, and to guide you as you explore the details that define the NIS experience.
Prior to an application online, parents are welcome to visit NIS and discuss their children's schooling needs. This can be done by telephoning or e-mailing the Admissions Office to arrange a convenient date and time. Most students join Northfields International School in August, but we are happy to admit students throughout the year provided that we have places available.
Students will be placed in their age appropriate year group based on their age at the start of the academic year (starting in August).
