Admissions @ DPA

Welcome !!!

Thank you for your interest in Desolat Prudent Academy

We are proud of the reputation our school has gained since its establishment and pleased that you are thinking about becoming part of our learning community.

We are available to answer your questions to help expedite the admissions process.

Admission Policy

Children who want admission into the Nursery and Reception classes must have attained certain ages  at the beginning of the school year. The children admitted into Nursery and Reception classes do not require a written test; the Head of Nursery will only conduct an oral interview to ascertain an appropriate placement.


Admission is by competitive entrance examination conducted by the school for the Secondary Classes.


Parents may fill the admission form and walk in thereafter or contact our admission office on phone. This is then responded to by the Head of Admissions. If parents are in the country, they will be invited to the Office of Admissions for an informal interview.  Prospective parents who are abroad will be given a Phone interview. After the interview, an application form will be issued by the Head of Admissions if appropriate.


It is important to note that the Office of Admissions will only communicate with a parent or legal guardian.  If a child is in the care of an adult who is not the parent, the Office of Admissions requires a letter of authorization from the parent or parents stating that the adult is able to act on their behalf in the affairs of the child.

It is advised to apply as early as possible as demand for places is high.

The Preconditions for Admission Are That:

  • The applicant is of appropriate age.
  • The applicant’s needs can, in the opinion of the Principal, be managed within the School’s provision.
  • The present School (if applicable) reports satisfactory attitudes and conduct on the part of the child and parent(s).
  • Fees (if applicable) at the present school have been paid up in full.
  • The family have maintained a satisfactory payment history for siblings already admitted to DPA
  • Prospective parents meet with the Head of Admissions or are interviewed via Phone.
  • Parents/Guardians undertake a tour of the School (actual or virtual).
  • Parents/Guardians  have agreed to sign up to the School’s Parent Contract, including a Home/School contract outlining mutual support, responsibilities and support for the School and its policies and decisions.
