Procedure for Admissions

Thank you very much for the enquiry regarding the British International School.

 We look at two factors when placing students at BIS, age and the number of years of education.  Applicants for Year 7 must be at least 11 years old during the calendar year they wish to join and to have completed 6 years of primary education. 

 The Admission process to BIS is as follows:

 Step 1: Complete the application

 All applicants must submit the following information and payment in order to complete an application for admission to BIS.


1.     A completed application form with one passport photo attached

2.     A copy of the applicant's birth certificate

3.     A copy of the applicant's last school report

4.     The payment of the 20,000 Naira Application fee


Note: The Registrar's Office will not accept an incomplete application. All the application documents are required before the application can proceed to Step 2.


Step 2: Assessment


All applicants to BIS must complete an entrance exam.
