Waiting List Definitions 

Open – We are accepting applications into the waiting list and anticipate making admission offers, however, we cannot guarantee place availability to all who apply. Waiting lists are maintained for all year groups and applicants may be waitlisted after assessment, depending on availability.

Open, Waitlist Only – Applications are accepted into the waiting list on the caveat that all year group places have been offered, and we do not have places to offer today. Students will be invited for assessment and places offered from the waiting list if they become available.

Closed – Waiting lists are kept open until the cap is reached, at which time they are closed and no further applications are accepted. Note, we will accept applications from DBS Group staff, siblings and corporate debentures even if closed.
