Does TBAC have an admissions test and if so, what kind of test do prospective students sit?
All applications are reviewed by the school to determine if a prospective student has the ability to successfully access the school curriculum. If there is some uncertainty about this, a student will be invited to complete an entrance assessment.
Is there a registration fee to pay?
A nominal fee is charged if you accept an offer of a place at TBAC. This is non-refundable and is not redeemable against school fees. Please note that the first term's tuition fee is paid at the same time as the registration fee.

Do you cater for children with special needs?
We have inclusion policy. We generally do not accept children who have a 'statement of special needs' or require one-on-one support to access the curriculum. Students with an individual education plan will be reviewed carefully and will have to undertake an assessment.
My child will not finish the school year before he moves to TBAC. Does this mean he has to repeat the whole year?
