The selection of the right school to suit your child’s personality and interests is one of the most difficult decisions a parent can make. The MCS endeavours to place the individual needs of each learner as a priority and will do everything possible to apprise you of all the school has to offer, so that you are able to make an informed decision.


Prospective parents and pupils are welcome to contact us to visit our school, and be taken on a tour of our facilities.


If you would like to enroll your child at The Mountain Cambridge School, you need to fill out an application form, which can be downloaded from the website or obtained from the school secretary when visiting the school by appointment. It is advisable to apply for admission as far in advance as possible to avoid disappointment.

Upon receipt of your application form and fee payment, you will receive acknowledgment.

Submission of an application form does not imply automatic acceptance for your child. Although the date of application orders the waitlist, special consideration is given to siblings.

Once you have received confirmation of your application, you will be required to accept the school’s Conditions of Admission and Code of Conduct.
