Sample Answer:

Dear Principal,

I am writing to ask if there is any opportunity to admit my son in your school. He is in 7 grade at his present school. He has a great interest in science courses, particularly math and physics. Therefore, I am eager to get admission for my son in a school with good laboratory facilities like yours.

I am attach his last year’s report card that set forth the testimony of his enthusiasm in science courses. Not only is he good in academic side, but also he loves sports, especially cricket. He played role as a captain in the inter-school cricket league. Besides, he is a good debater, and an active member of the school’s debating club. In addition to this, he has engaged in many volunteer services run by this present school.

We are going to arrive our new place in June next year, and are very much anxious about our son’s admission in school. It would be great if you give my boy the opportunity to study in your school.
I look forward to hearing you as early as possible.

Yours faithfully,
John Gray
