Imperial School Admissions

Admission into Imperial School for the Junior Secondary School (JSS1) is through a prometric examination which usually takes place in May of every year. Placements are usually by merit in view of the competition for admission. The School admits pupils from all the segments of the society and there is no discrimination of any type provided the child performs well in the entrance examination. International students may be given considerations in the admissions. Sometimes a small percentage of the admission could be reserved for deserving pupils from the immediate community.

Students may also, depending on vacancies, be admitted into other classes except JSS 3 and SS 3. Students who transfer to Imperial School from other Schools into SS1 are expected to produce the results of their JSS 3 examinations or equivalent showing that they have passed at very good levels. Imperial School is a full boarding secondary school and entrants into JSS1 should be 11 years old to cope with the rigors of boarding and accept to live a fairly independent life away from parents. Medical certificates are demanded on admission and these must show evidence of no infections or serious maladies. There is a list of items required for boarding and these must be purchased and confirmed before admission into boarding system. All fees must be paid before resumption of any term or before admission.
