All applications to our school require a non-refundable and non-transferable assessment fee of HK$3,000.
Please consider that we receive many more applications than we have places for. As the fee is non-refundable, we do encourage you to email us first to check availability in your child's year group.
Once we receive your Application Form and the supporting documents, our Admissions Manager will email you to confirm receipt of your application and to advise you of the next steps.
These next steps will depend on (i) the year for which you are applying and (ii) your requested start date.
Assessments for Nursery, Lower Kindergarten, Upper Kindergarten and Year 1 spaces take place in December to February of the year for which you are applying (ie. if you are applying to start in August 2018, assessments will take place in Dec 2017/Feb 2018). The school also accepts applicaitons on a rolling basis after this main intake.
Please note that, as siblings of children already in our school have priority, these children assessments will take place in Oct/Nov (ie.Oct/Nov of 2017 for August 2018 starters).
Assessments for other years (Years 2 to 10) take place, on a rolling basis, as and when a place becomes available. Our Admissions Manager will be in contact with you.
Your application and assessment will be reviewed by a member of our Senior Leadership Team, headed by our Principal. The final decision to offer a place is based on your child's application, assessment and their level of priority on our waitlists.
Once a decision is made, you will be notified by our Admissions Team by email. This email will include: (i) an Offer of Place, (ii) Enrolment Acceptance Letter and (ii) an invoice for a non-refundable, non-transferable Capital Enrolment Fee (details below).
Capital Enrolment Fee
