Preparatory Years

Preparatory Year 1 (PY1) is the first year of entry into SISHK. This year group has the largest number of applications and most students will usually continue with us to the Secondary school. We also accept applications into Preparatory Year 2 (PY2), although places are very limited. All completed applications received by SISHK before the application closing date will be considered by our Admissions Panels, and applicants are invited to attend an admissions assessment as part of the admissions process. The admissions assessment helps the school to gauge an applicant’s language and learning abilities as well as suitability for the school’s curriculum. You can choose to apply online (preferred) or to download an application form.

The application period for the PY section has closed, and all school places for both PY1 and PY2 have been filled. Applicants who are Singapore citizens or Singapore permanent residents and are relocating to Hong Kong may still choose to apply if they are willing to be placed on the waiting list until a vacancy becomes available.

The application period for PY section for AY2019/20 closed on 30 September 2018. Applicants who are Singapore citizens or Singapore permanent residents relocating to Hong Kong may still apply after 30 September 2018. However, applications received after 1 December 2018 are subjected to the  availability of school places.

The application period is from 1 August 2018 to 30 September 2019. Applicants who are Singapore citizens or Singapore permanent residents relocating to Hong Kong may still apply after 30 September 2019. However, admissions are subject to availability of vacancies. The majority of our students have been with us since PY1, we advise parents who wish for their children to join SISHK to start at PY1.
