TIS is a non-selective school and entry at every stage is decided by an interview meeting.  Parents considering joining TIS are advised to contact the Admissions Officer or Head Teacher well before their suggested entry date, as places are limited.

After the interview, places are only confirmed with a deposit of part payment of the school fees.

Uniforms / PE kits are available for purchase from the school and these are regarded as the property of the parents.  International students are offered a collection / delivery service from / to the airport or bus station.


Young adults have so many personal requirements and needs.  To give them some freedom from uniformity, we provide a bed and mattress but expect students to arrive with their own bedding and toiletries.  Stationary, textbooks, scientific equipment and exercise books for some courses are provided by the school apart from specialist equipment necessary for vocational subjects.  We expect students to supplement these with their own pens, pencils, geometry set, calculators, markers, coloured pencils, clipboards, etc.  Students who own laptops must hand them in to the Computer Room manager for safekeeping.


Our school fees are inclusive of scholastic materials, meals and a mattress. Foreign students are charged in dollars while Ugandan students are charged in local currency.

We expect all our parents to purchase for their children uniforms and to maintain them. We have a uniform shop at school at which our parents can buy any one of the uniform pieces that they wish to replace in case they wear out. Uniforms are therefore the property of parents.

The school fees paid for our pupils from outside of Uganda include the collection and delivery of the child from and to the airport. The fees for international pupils also entitle them to arrive a few days earlier or to remain at school for a few days extra, in order to accommodate the timing of their air flights at the start and end of term.

We require parents wishing to book a place for their child at TIS to pay Registration fees and Uniform in order for us to reserve their place.

We assist in obtaining student pass, at a cost, for our pupils who require them.

We provide our parents with invoices at the end of the term indicating fees for the next term.

We do not receive cash at school for security reasons. We request our parents to obtain the relevant bank slips from our offices, which in fact we normally issue out together with the invoices.

If you have any queries regarding the fees, statements or receipts, please contact the administration on +256 (0) 755200028 or
