Applying to ISP
What Is the Application Process?
Submitting an Application
Applications are submitted online through the ISP OpenApply Portal.
The OpenApply platform guides you as you complete the necessary application documents. Some forms are completed directly in OpenApply, while other documents must be scanned and uploaded to OpenApply.

How Are Applications Reviewed and Acceptances Sent?
We begin our application reviews in December of the current year for the next year. However, December is NOT an application deadline. There is no deadline for applying to ISP. We accept applications throughout the year and we regularly welcome new families after the beginning of the academic year.
Some grades fill up quickly and so we always encourage families to begin the application process as early as possible. Please contact the Admissions Team for the latest information on space availability per grade.
Once your application is complete the Admissions Committee will begin a review of your file. The process typically takes 10 to 15 working days. The Admissions Committee is composed of members of the Admissions Team, the Primary or Secondary School Principal and the Head of School. Additional colleagues may be consulted for specialist advice, including the Wellbeing Team or the Learning Support Team.
If you application is successful, you will receive an official acceptance letter with instructions on completing the registration process and securing your child(ren)'s place at ISP.
If we have reached our maximum capacity in a grade level approved candidates are placed in a waiting pool. Please see the Admissions Policy for full details on how we manage this situation.
