Primary

We accept applications for all levels although places are limited and most of our students have been with SISHK since their preparatory years. All completed applications received by SISHK are considered by our Admissions Panel and we invite all applicants to attend an assessment and interview session as part of the admissions process. The admissions assessment and interview session 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 or to download an application form. If you should have any enquiries during the application process, our Admissions Team will be most happy to hear from you and help with any enquiries you may have.

Application deadlines

For our primary section, the application deadline is usually set at 30 September and the admissions assessment  will take place in December. While we do accept applications throughout the year on a case-by-case basis, places are extremely limited. We encourage applicants to apply by 30 September in the year before the applicant is due to start. For example, if you wish to apply for your child to start in August 2019, please apply by 30 September 2018.

Applications for the Primary section are now closed for AY2018/19. We do accept applications from Singapore citizens or Singapore permanent residents who are relocating to Hong Kong, however, the applicant will be placed on a waiting list until a vacancy becomes available.

The application period for Primary One to Six is from 1 August 2017 to 30 September 2018. Applicants will be required to attend the admissions assessment and interview in December 2018.  Applications received after 30 September 2018 will only be considered for assessment if a suitable place becomes available. Applicants who are Singapore citizens or Singapore permanent residents relocating to Hong Kong may still apply after 30 September 2018. However, admissions are subject to availability of vacancies.
