Our admissions policy ensures that the school is following fair and appropriate procedures regarding the selection of children.
Detailed entrance requirements by programme are available through consultation with the Director of Admissions. Some special needs can be catered for but these should be discussed in detail and in advance.
Non-English mother-tongue students are welcome provided their level of English allows them to follow the curriculum effectively – we are a school for children of the world.
Places are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Siblings of current and past BSG students will have priority in placement.
Applications are accepted throughout the year, although the allocation of places is subject to availability.
Placement in a year group is based on the age and educational background of the student. In some instances, written evaluations may be carried out. The school will make the final decision concerning the placement of a student.
Re-Enrolment for Subsequent Academic Years
All students must be re-enrolled for each school year in order for their place to be confirmed.
A signed re-enrolment form should be submitted to the Principal (either in original or electronic form) before 31 March each year. The registration fee of 950.-CHF is also due by 31 March. Only once a signed re-enrolment form has been received and the registration fee has been paid will a place for the following year be confirmed. In the event of the form not being received or payment not being made, the school retains the right to allocate the place to another family.
Parents have the right to withdraw their child(ren) for any reason and at any time during the school year.
In this event the following charges will apply:
- Cancellation of enrolment before the start of the academic year: 2’000.-CHF
- Departure during the school year: fees due until the end of the term of departure.
- Notice of withdrawal must be received in writing prior to the end of an academic term, otherwise fees for the full following term will be due.
- No refunds will be granted for capital development fees or registration fees.
