"Each journey is unique to the individual child and family..."
Every child you see in a Green Blazer today has been through his or her own admissions journey.
Usually, applications should be submitted by mid-January prior to the Entrance Assessment in order to secure your child's place the following academic year. However, depending on places available, we can accept applications throughout the year whether you are looking for your child to join us at the beginning of the school year in August or mid-term.
Each journey is unique to the individual child and family, however, here is a timeline to help you understand the general route from interest to admission.
Prospective parents and pupils are invited to attend our Open Evening. Don't worry if you can't make Open Evening, as personalised tours are available at any time throughout the year.
Applications open for the following year:
Green Blazer Story
Applicants from Primary 4 to Senior 6 must include the ‘Green Blazer Story’ - a short essay about themselves and what they hope to achieve in the Green Blazer - their hobbies and interests, favourite subjects and ambitions. This should be handwritten and as a guide should be no more than 500 words.
Please note, if your child has any additional support needs or supporting documentation, please include it with your application - it is very important to us that we meet the needs of every child.
Bursary applications must be submitted in full by Friday 14th December 2018, with all relevant documentation.
Applications should be submitted by mid-January prior to Getting to Know You Meeting and Entrance Assessment.
Getting to Know You Meeting
Before the Entrance Assessment, we will invite you and your child to meet with one of the senior management team to get to know you better and find out more about your child's interests. These meetings will take place from 14th - 25th January 2019 and we will inform you of the date and time of your meeting at the start of January.
The Entrance Assessment for P2-S2 will be held on a Saturday in January (Saturday 26th January 2019).
Primary 1 assessments will be held w/c Monday 21st January 2019.
Kindergarten 2 assessments will be held w/c 28th January 2019.

You can find out more about our entrance assessments here.
Offer letters, along with parental contracts, are sent out in early February. If you choose to accept an offer of a place at the College, please send back your signed parental contract along with the deposit by the date specified on your offer letter.
Kindergarten 1 Assessments w/c Tuesday 23rd April 2019.
Your child will attend an Orientation Day at the College so that they know what to expect when they start at their new school. All new parents are invited to attend a New Parents Meeting, designed to welcome our new families into the Aloysian community.
The first day of term arrives as your child marks the true beginning of his or her own Green Blazer story.
