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. To submit an application form, please apply online.
