Admissions

Thank you for your interest in the Florence Bilingual School. In this section you will find useful information on the application procedure.

Per la maggior parte dei cicli la disponibilità dei posti nella nostra scuola è limitata.

The school is normally at full capacity in most year groups. The admission office follows-up on requests and works to accommodate applicants when space is available.

As some of our students’ families relocate, often with short notice, we we are pleased to accept applications year-round.

Enrolment Procedure

For the first years of each school level, from pre-school to liceo (high-school) enrolments take place between December and January in the year before candidates are due to attend school.

For all classes it is possible to submit the application form any time during the year. Applications will be examined, and places assigned based on availability.

We invite you to fill in the application form to provide us with the necessary data to contact you.

Should the grade of interest to you be at full capacity, we will add you to our waiting list and we will contact you as soon as a place is available.

For any additional information or query, please contact the Admission Office by sending an email to admissions@florencebilingualschool.it.
