Frequently Asked Questions

Enrolment

We try our best to make the enrolment process as simple and straight forward as possible. Acceptance at Oakwood is based, to some degree, on a child’s performance in our standard Cognitive Ability Tests (CATs). These tests are designed to investigate a child’s potential and allow us, should they be enroled, to address their particular learning requirements. Full details about our application procedure are available here.

Our maximum class size is 22 learners per class in Forms 1 to 4 and 18 per class in Lower and Upper 6.

Oakwood will have an entrance assessment, which will be based on a number of Cognitive Ability Tests (CATs). These tests are designed to measure a student’s current academic ability and give an indication of future potential.
