If you are considering Ambleside Primary School of Kensington for your children, the first step is to learn about the kind of education we offer.

We recommend watching the videos under our school Philosophy. If Ambleside Primary School of Kensington offers what you are looking for, please send an email or contact the school office for a date for our Information Mornings.

Information Mornings are an ideal opportunity for prospective parents to meet with us and to observe the Ambleside method of teaching.
Kindly contact us for an appointment.

After you have attended one of our Information Mornings, you will be able to make an appointment for your child for an Assessment.

The school will assess if children are ready for the proposed grade - academically, emotionally, socially and physically. After the Assessment parents will attend an interview with the Principal.

As we are an English-medium school, children must have a good grasp of the English language.
