We currently offer Preparatory to Grade 10 (Year 1 to 11). Grade 11 (Year 12) will be added in the 2022/23 school year

In March / April we start registering siblings of children already at RICE for Year 1 (Preparatory), since siblings receive priority. We then invite families on our waiting list, for Year 1 only, to bring their child for a Place Assessment. The purpose of the Place Assessment is to ensure a child is ready to start in Year 1. The Assessment examines English, Maths, and Amharic. Places are then allocated according to the number of spaces available and the assessment result.
