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 11 in the 2021/22 academic year and we will offer Pre-Primary to Grade 12 in 2022/23. We are a through-train school, and once your child enrolls at Stamford, they can attend until the graduation - no need to reapply.
