THE ADMISSION PROCESS and APPLICATION FORM
We are pleased that you are considering Jameah Girls Academy for your child.
Jameah Girls Academy is an independent day school for pupils in Years 1-11. We are a small school with single form entry, and places in all year groups are limited.
We appreciate that choosing the right school for your child is very important, therefore we encourage you to explore our website. We hold an Open Day in the Autumn Term which is an opportunity to view the school. We base our procedure on our principal criteria which is whether the pupil will thrive in a competitive, but tolerant and friendly environment, and whether she will access the integrated curriculum we offer. This will be assessed at Stage 1, 2 and 3 of the admissions process outlined below. The aim of the process is to identify potential.
Jameah Girls Academy is looking for well-rounded pupils with a genuine interest in education in the broadest sense of the word, with interests that stretch beyond the confines of the academic curriculum. Moreover, we look for pupils who are keen to take advantage of either the Hifz or ‘Alimiyyah options on offer. Please be aware that applications to Year 6 and Year 7 are usually oversubscribed. In order to avoid disappointment, we recommend that families enrol their children as early as Key Stage 1. This carries the additional advantage that children will begin learning the Arabic language, and partake in the Islamic Curriculum and Tarbiyah lessons from an early age.
The Stages are outlined below:
Stage 1: Application Form: JGA must receive a fully completed form with all the latest documents in order to be considered in light of the description above. We will open an Admissions window when possible - there is no fixed time for when an Admissions window may be opened for an in-year application. For all applications for a new academic year, admissions are considered from the Spring Term.
Stage 2: Admissions Test: Only applications which meet the Stage 1 requirements of the admissions procedure will be invited to an Admissions test. You will only hear from us if the application advances to this stage.
For Key Stage 1 applications, the test will consist of a numeracy, writing and reading screening.
For Keystage 2 and 3, there is a Maths and English test, plus a digital test that yields a standardised age score for key areas of learning. Accepting an invitation to a test is not the guarantee of a place offer.
Stage 3: Interview: Based on performance on the test and information we glean in light of the description above, applications that progress to Stage 3 will be invited for an in-person pupil and parent interview with a member of the school leadership team. The interview gives us the opportunity to discuss your daughter’s performance in the assessment and assess her academic potential and personal interests.
Stage 4: Decision: Applicants will be informed if the school is able to offer the applicant a place or not.
Please Note: Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that all applications will progress through every stage of the process. Progression at each stage is subject to certain criteria, the capacity of the school, number of applications and availability.
