In order to take due account of academic and social maturation issues, the school will admit students according to strict criteria with regard to age, as follows:
Students seeking admission into Year 7 at the start of a school year in September must reach the age of 11 years by the 31st August in that same year.
Similarly, students seeking admission into Year 8 at the start of a school year in September must reach the age of 12 years by the 31st August of the year of entry.
Students are normally admitted at the beginning of the school year. Admissions during the school year will only be considered if there are vacancies, and will be subject to the same admission criteria.
Students seeking admission to CKA at any time later than the Year 7 September entry will be required to provide a confidential reference from their previous school regarding their conduct and behaviour. Students who are older than the eligible age for their class will not normally be admitted. However, after considering the circumstances, the effect of the candidate’s maturity on his/her performance, and the effect on the other students, the Head of School may use his/her discretion as whether to admit.
