“Ilam School provides high quality care and education for its international students. Their individual needs, progress and achievement are monitored closely and support for learning is provided through well planned ESOL lessons and by skilled teachers. Students are well integrated into the life of the school and community.”
2013 Education Review Office Report.

The following enrolment process has been put in place so both the family and the school have as much information as possible to ensure the student has a secure, successful start to their education at Ilam School.

After we receive your application:

  • We will check the documentation and issue you with an international student fees invoice.
  • You pay your fees, we issue an Offer of Place
  • You apply for a student visa
  • Visa approved – make travel arrangements.  Advise the school of arrival date.
  • The school will provide you with a date and time for an interview with the ESOL Team Leader.
  • An interview (45 minutes) with the ESOL Team Leader will be held with the family to share information about the student and the school.
  • Once the information from the interview is assessed by the ESOL Team Leader, the family will be phoned with student’s class and teacher’s name. A stationery list will be made available for the student.
  • The student will start school 2 or 3 days after the interview. This allows the student and their family to settle into their new home, stationery and uniform items to be purchased and any effects of jet lag to disappear.

Ilam School is a signatory to The Code of Practice for International Students and adhere to this document.
