At The International School of Madeira, we welcome all enquiries regarding admissions and encourage pupils and families to visit the school, by appointment, for an opportunity to see all that we offer. Parents interested in enrolling their children at The International School must first complete and submit the Application for Admission form available from the office or via the web site. If there is a physical vacancy and the child is accepted as a pupil, an Admission Fee is payable.

For all levels, a personal interview with the principal of the school is required. All applications are considered without regard to race, creed, colour, ethnic, religious or national origin.

At Primary 1 level, an evaluation of the child will be used in a comprehensive assessment process by the school's Admissions Committee to determine the child's readiness for entrance into Primary 1.
We have found this necessary at Primary 1 level to ensure that the children have the social and motor skills necessary to enable them to participate fully, contribute and interact with other pupils at the same class level.
To enrol in Primary 1 the pupil must be six years old by 31 December of that school year.
