On completion of Step 1, an email will be sent to your nominated email address containing a URL to continue the application at your convenience.

Step 2: Enrolment Interview

Before a place is offered, we will invite you and your child to attend an enrolment interview. Interviews are generally held in Term II and III of the year preceding entry. Preparatory Interviews include a visit to TIGS Prep. The interview is an opportunity to discuss the School’s programmes and to allow parents and students to raise any questions. Please note: Not all students who are interviewed will be offered a place at the School.

Step 3: Offer of Placement

Subject to the outcome of the interview and availability of placements, a letter offering a placement will be mailed to the parents/guardians.

Step 4 Accepting/Declining the Placement

To accept your child’s placement at the School, you will be required to sign and return the Acceptance of Offer together with the non-refundable Enrolment Fee of $1750.00 within 21 days (or as stated in the letter of offer). Enrolment Fee: is a non-refundable fee which is required to be paid to demonstrate the firm intention of parent/guardians to take up a place held for their child for commencement on a nominated date. It is security held for the enrolled child, as the School has to incur expenditure for both physical and human resources in preparation for the new school year. To decline your child’s placement at the School, a written letter declining the position is required within 21 days or earlier.

Step 5: Receipt of Acceptance and Commencement

Upon receipt of the signed Acceptance of Offer and payment of the Enrolment Fee, your child will be deemed enrolled.
