If any year the School receives more applications than there are places available, a waiting list will be created until three months after the admission date.
If the number of applications for admissions exceeds the number of available in any particular year, places will be allocated in accordance with the following criteria:
Students will be given priority if they have a sibling, or siblings, currently attending the School on the date of admission. The term ‘sibling’ means full, step, half, adopted or fostered brother or sister; it does not include cousins.
Number of Admissions

If the parents would like to withdraw their child(s) from Capital School, then, they have to inform the Principal – in written – and should be including the full details of their child(s) and the reason for leaving.
We required at least ten school working days notice to prepare the exit documents.
Progression of Students between Years
In line with the Ministry of Education (MoE) policy, the School will adopt a continuous progression policy where all children move to the next age-related year group.
For Years 2 and above, the MoE requires that all new students coming from Bahrain or internationally require MoE approval for all school transfers. Please contact the admissions office for more information on this matter. Please note that the original transfer approval letter is required by the admissions office for school records.
