Applications Open -2023/24 Entry

Applications to our international school are open for the 2023-24 academic year! Applications are prioritized by the date received and priority criteria. As early admissions dates and offers have passed interested applicants should apply now in order to secure limited August spaces.

Applications for 2024/2025 and beyond can be submitted any time and receive priority over later applications-apply early for this benefit.

As a flexible international curriculum school, 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. We are a through-train international school, and once your child secures an enrollment at Stamford, they can attend until graduation – no need to reapply.

Application and assessment fees for our international school are currently waived.

Applications will be considered in priority by the order they have been received, as well as other admissions priority criteria. Early applications for our international school are favored. Offers of admissions will be made from December onward based on space availability and grade applied.

Mid-Year Entry

We are accepting online applications for the 2022-23 mid-year entry to our international school (subject to space availability). Early applications will be considered in priority by the order they have been received as well as other admissions priority criteria of our international school.

*All students must hold a valid Hong Kong visa prior to start date
