Online Application Process

We offer admissions on a rolling basis, so students can start school any time during the academic year if space is available in their grade. Please note that classes are only offered from Pre-Primary to Grade 10 in the 2020-2021 academic year and we will offer grades 11 through 12 in the subsequent academic year(s). We are a through-train school, and once your child enrolls at Stamford, they can attend until graduation-no need to reapply.
Whether you are relocating or switching schools within Hong Kong, we will do our best to help your family make a smooth transition into our community.

Application and assessment fees are currently waived.
To inquire about availability or information about Stamford, please contact the Admissions Team at +852 2500 8688
