Admission Process

Application forms cost N25,000 and can be purchased from The Regent Secondary School Office or downloaded from our website. Application form will only be sold to parents whose child meets the age requirement.

AGE REQUIREMENT

Students seeking admission into the following Year Group at the start of a school year in September must reach the required age by 31 August in that same year. The required age is:

  • Year 7 – 11
  • Year 8 – 12
  • Year 9 – 13
  • Year 10 – 14

Children who do not meet the age entry requirements will not be permitted to sit the entrance examination.

The school will not normally accept admissions into Years 11, except in special circumstances, and at the Principal’s discretion.

 COMPLETING THE APPLICATION FORM

For the purpose of proper documentation and effective record keeping, it is important that you fill in the application form completely and correctly.

The form should be completed by the parent or guardian and duly signed and NOT by the child.

Please state your child’s or ward’s name and surname as you want them to appear on all his or her school records. The names supplied follow the child all through his/her stay at The Regent School and appears on his/her reports and certificates.

Ensure that the e-mail address given is active to facilitate communication.

Attach one recent passport-sized photograph, photocopies of immediate past academic records, bio-data page of the international passport or birth certificate. If your child is transferring to The Regent from another Secondary School, please attach the Transfer Certificate and reference from the Principal of that school to the application. The duly completed application form should be returned to the school’s Administrative Office.

The Admissions Office will thereafter advise you of the dates available to sit our Entrance test.

ENTRANCE ASSESSMENT

All applicants will be required to sit the School’s Entrance Test which lasts for 3 and half hours. English & Mathematics are the subjects tested. Marking & grading of tests depends on the class to which the child is seeking admission into.

Entrance tests are scheduled for February and March in Abuja.  Additional testing sessions are offered at a later date subject to availability of space.

Candidates should come along with writing materials, mathematical sets and a non-programmable calculator to write the test.

Students are expected to perform at average (65%) or above average in order to be granted admission.

The School reserves the right NOT to admit a child even if he/she has passed the entrance tests.

 

 ADMISSION PROCESSING PERIOD

The Regent Secondary School academic year starts in September and ends in July. We encourage applicants to apply as early as possible. Application for admission will only be processed when all necessary documents as listed in the application form are received.

Once admission has been offered, acceptance is indicated by the payment of a onetime Capital Developmental fee which is NON-REFUNDABLE.
