Entry Requirements


The college has an inclusive admissions policy, which means that, in principle, all students are eligible to enter the school, provided that the school can cater for their needs and they have a suitable level of English for their age group. Prospective students are assessed in English and Maths and must provide copies of past school reports to ensure we can target our programmes effectively for each child’s individual needs.

Provided the entrance test results, past school reports and interview where applicable are satisfactory, and there is space in the appropriate class, a place will be offered.

Pupils who do not speak English as a first language will be considered as long as satisfactory support strategies can be established, which may include a commitment for extra tuition after school hours.

Detailed entry requirements for specific year groups:

NURSERY CLASS
Children are admitted into the nursery class when they are three years old. Children have to be fully potty trained and free of wearing nappies. There is no minimum level of English required, although an understanding of the language is an advantage.

Last week, 10 staff from Morna gave up their weekend to attend the annual National Association of British Schools in Spain conference in Valencia. As well as including important updates about child protection, safeguarding and educationally related laws, there were also a number of training workshops designed to help teachers improve teaching and learning in schools. These workshops not only benefitted the staff that attended, but the information was also shared with staff throughout our school.
We are always looking to improve at Morna, and we make a major investment in the training and development of our staff each year.
The NABSS conference is one small part of this, but the fact that so many staff were keen to attend, shows their commitment to this process.
Our staff are always looking to do what is best for the students of our school, and this is another example of that.
Have a great weekend.

Last week, Y10 students visited the “Parque Natural de las Salinas” with their Spanish teachers. They learned about the sea turtle species which have come to the island to lay their eggs in the last years. Students did a simulation of the nest translocation protocol that is carried out by environment agents and scientists when a turtle trace is found.
