Admissions Process


Welcome to Strothoff International School

Our Admissions Team aims to make your transition to a new school as easy as possible. We want to provide you with all the information you need and reply to all of your questions.

We welcome and accept applications from families at any point during the year. The admissions process helps us to ensure that we can offer the right match between what you are expecting from the school and what we hope for in a student.

Admissions Process

We are proud of our school and pleased you have chosen to learn more about the opportunities that await you here at Strothoff International School. At any time in the process our Admissions Team will be on hand to answer your questions and help you through to a successful start.

First Step: Contact the Admissions Team

The Team will be happy to send you an information pack and answer any questions you may have.

Please contact our Admissions Team
Sue Boek and Susan Liebertz

Second Step: Schedule a visit

We appreciate that this is not always possible for families who live far away, but we would always encourage you to make a personal visit to the school. It is best to visit on a typical school day (Monday to Friday during term time) before deciding whether Strothoff is the school for you.

Visitors will be shown around the school by a member of our Admissions Team and will have the opportunity to meet with senior members of teaching staff. It is a chance for us to get to know you, as well as for you to see us at work.

We get a lot of requests, so it is a good idea to contact us well in advance.

Teacher Recommendations.

Most private international school applications provide applicants with a specific recommendation form to be completed by a teacher. At Strothoff International School we ask for two 'teacher recommendations' The recommendations give us a more subjective evaluation of academic progress to date. Please complete the teacher recommendation request forms. Parents are asked to provide contact details of an English teacher and a teacher of the significant subject.  


For a child entering our Kindergarten, please request a ‘Kindergarten Teacher Recommendation’ form from Admissions. 


Application Review and Offer of a Place.

The Admissions Department will review each complete application (an application is complete when all forms and documents are submitted).


The Admission Committee meet regularly to review completed applications. Parents are informed of an offer of a place via telephone or email.  There is no deadline for submission of applications but we recommend that you send in your application as early as possible to guarantee a school place.


Acceptance of a school place and Fee Payment.

Once you have received your offer of a school place a formal ‘Letter of Acceptance’ will be sent to your home address. Acceptance of the place in school must be received within 14-days.  An invoice for Registration and Administration fees will be sent to you at the same time as the ‘Letter of Acceptance’.

The school contract information can be found on the OpenApply site. Please take a few minutes and read the Terms of and Conditions that you're entering,and pay special attention Section 9 – Termination.
