Admissions Procedure

Admissions Procedure

Always with the best interests of children in mind, San Silvestre´s admissions system is consistent with the age of each child. This system was designed very carefully to avoid any unnecessary pressure on either the parents or the children.

Younger sisters of current pupils, daughters of ex- pupils and daughters of staff are given priority.


The procedure for applying to Nursery 2020 ended in December 2018. For inquiries about this process please email

The procedure for applying to Nursery 2021 will open on Monday 12th of August and will close on Friday 20th of September 2019. Nursery 2021 applicants must have been born between 1st April 2017 and 31st March 2018.

Once the documents have been submitted, the Admissions Office will contact the parents, by email, to provide them with an application code and invite them to the Informative Talk.

The admission fee of 500.00 soles is a non-refundable and non-transferable payment. With this code, parents can pay the fee until days after the Informative Talk.

Subsequently an interview will be scheduled.

Informative Talk

The Admissions Office will invite you to an informative talk on the admissions process. The informative talk is an essential part of the admissions process, as it gives prospective parents a general idea of what San Silvestre School has to offer. Both the talk and the personal interviews provide the opportunity to find out why San Silvestre is such a special school.

Personal Interview with Parents
An interview of both parents together is an essential requirement within the admission procedure and is an important part of the admissions process. The interview encourages parents to talk openly about their daughter and for the school to be sure that the family really agrees with and supports our ethos and identifies with our values and vision in both academic and formative areas. After the interview, parents are taken on a guided tour of the School, so they can see our teaching system in action.

Once the admission process is completed, the Admissions Office will inform the parents of the decision.


Students applying to other grades or transferring from another school may apply at any time during the academic year. The admissions process is subject to availability of vacancies in the grade to which the girl is applying.

To find out if vacancies are available please e-mail

If there is a vacancy, you must fully complete the application form, available at the school’s Reception Office or through the link shown at the end of this document, together with the following documents:

  • 4 carnet-sized photographs of the child
  • 1 copy of the child’s birth certificate
  • 1 coloured copy of the child’s DNI
  • 1 coloured copy of the mother’s DNI
  • 1 coloured copy of the father’s DNI
  • Foreign families have to present a copy of their Foreign Resident’s card or passport

Once the application form and requested documents are presented, the Admissions Office will get in touch with the parents to arrange for an interview. This interview is an essential requirement within the admission process.

A non-reimbursable and non-transferable sum of 500.00 soles is charged to cover the cost of processing the application. Parents will be sent an e-mail indicating the code for payment at the bank.

The Admissions Office will inform the parents once the decision has been made.

Transfers from Abroad

Please bear in mind that girls who are accepted from abroad must bring their official certificate of studies duly legalized abroad. It is essential to make the necessary arrangements for this document to be legalized abroad before coming to Peru, as it is difficult to obtain this at a distance. All schools in Peru require this certificate to be validated by the Ministry of Education.

There are two ways to legalize documents:

  • Signatory countries of the Hague Convention: the document must have an Apostille seal issued by the country of origin and must then must be officially translated into Spanish
  • Other countries:  the document must be endorsed by the Peruvian consul in the country of origin, whose signature must be legalized in the Peruvian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The document must then be officially translated into Spanish.
