ADMISSIONS


Admissions Procedure

At EtonHouse Prep we are able to offer places to children from all backgrounds – including local Korean families, those with dual citizenship as well as expatriates and international families.

Below you will find an explanation of our admissions process:

1. Call us or drop in and organise a time to be shown around

All prospective parents are warmly invited to make an appointment to visit us for a tour of the building by the Admissions & Communications Manager. This is an opportunity to ask questions and receive information.

2. Fill out a registration form and pay fee

If prospective parents would like to register their child, they are asked to complete a registration form and pay registration fees of KRW 500,000 . Availability of places will be given at this time.

3. Informal assessments of children and interview with parents

We undertake informal assessments of all children prior to their starting date. These assessments are designed to determine the pupil’s strengths and weaknesses in order that the correct support and resources are provided for that child as they start, as well as to ensure that the pupil will benefit from the education on offer at EHPS. It is also an opportunity for the Headteacher to meet with parents and discuss their aspirations.

4. Offer letter and request for deposit

Parents will then receive a letter requesting  for a deposit to be paid to secure that place. Should the parent want to accept the place, they will then return the deposit under the child’s name and the child’s place will be confirmed. If there is no place in a particular year group, the child will be added to a waiting list.

5. Signing of forms and receiving of our welcome package including uniform

There will then be various forms to sign on policies relating to admissions, fees and the release of information. Upon completion of those, a uniform, bag and a parent handbook will then be sent out.

Eton Elite Scholarship

This scholarship is designed to offer financial assistance with the Instrumental Tuition programme for any pupils currently enrolled at EH Prep School and EH Lodge. The applicant must show great aptitude in the instrument chosen, and show high interest and motivation towards learning to perform music. The scholarship will be offered regardless of which instrument(s) chosen or the number of lessons the applicant wishes to take.

Only a limited number of pupils will be selected to be considered for the scholarship. The decision on the eligibility of all applicants will be discussed and selected by the CEO/Principal of EHPS and teachers/staff of Music Academy. The amount of scholarship will vary by each applicant. It will depend on the scholarship budget availability and the applicant’s parent(s)/guardian(s)’ current financial status.

House System

1. Why have houses?

We feel that children benefit from being members of mixed age group houses. This helps develop opportunities for year groups to work together, encourages children to support each other, gives them a strong sense of responsibility and provides them with a range of cooperative and competitive activities in which to participate.

Being in a house is also great fun!

2. How many houses are there?

There are three houses: ELGAR, SHACKLETON and NIGHTINGALE with a balanced number of children from each year group in each house. Children are assigned a house on entry to the school and siblings are in the same house. Staff are assigned to houses too.

House shirts are available for sale at the office and serve to identify each child’s house and develop a sense of belonging. House shirts may be worn on PE days or when there is a house activity.

3. How are the houses managed?

Each house has a boy and girl captain elected from amongst our oldest students. There are house captain badges and a house cup and students collect house points each week from adults in the school. Points are awarded as follows:

Doves
For hard work, kindness, co-operation, good manners and behaviour
Cups
For various achievements
4. When are houses used?

Every day children may be awarded house points. Also, the house system is used at various events and activities in school. House activities might  include: house song, sports day, inter-house quiz, fund raising, or art competitions.

5. How does the house win the HOUSE CUP?

House points are recorded weekly and announced in assembly. Cumulative totals are calculated each term and the House Cup is awarded to the team with the most points.

Looking forward to meeting you.
