  • Your proximity to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You may possibly need to send off your offspring to a specialised school to cater for your loved one.
  • Religious Schools
  • Your son/daughter attended a linked nursery/primary/secondary school.

  • Assessment or audition (if the school awards a precise number of spaces on the basis of aptitude for certain subjects)
