In order to comply with the Department of Education and Knowledge (ADEK) regulations, all pupils must submit a Transfer Certificate (TC) from their current school. This must be submitted prior to the first day of attendance.

The TC needs to be completed on the school’s official letterhead paper, signed by the school Principal and stamped.
