Admissions

Admissions Process

Admission is based solely on merit and the School does not discriminate in admissions on nationality, race, tribe, ethnic origin or religion. Parents of students with non-Kenyan nationalities must show a valid residence permit, and obtain a student pass for their child to be enrolled at the School.

All prospective students are expected to be conversant in English, have good numerical literacy, show academic aptitude and interest in co-curricular/sporting activities, and have a positive record of behavior both in and outside the classroom. We are currently accepting applications for Grades 1 through 4 for the 2018 academic year.

Class one entry

In September each year, the Waridi School admits approximately 60 students into Class 1, aged 5.0 to 6.5 years. Preference is given to students from the Waridi Day Nursery School Nairobi, where the Montessori curriculum is followed. Students from the Nursery School receive admission to the Primary School if they have been at the nursery School and graduated (middle & pre-unit class) and they receive a recommendation for admission from the Head-teacher of the Nursery School.
A small number of students are also admitted from various other nursery schools. For these students, selection is based on performance on entry level assessments and interviews with the students and parents.

Transfer from other schools

For admission into other levels/classes, an applicant is required to sit an entrance test. An interview will also be held with the student and sometimes with parents. Past reports from previous schools are taken into consideration for admission.

Sibling Discounts

Please apply to accounts department for a discount if you have a second (or subsequent) child at Waridi Schools. The discount is five percent for the second child and 7.5 percent for each subsequent child.
