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. We are a through-train school, and once your child enrolls at Stamford, they can attend until the graduation – no need to reapply. Application and assessment fees are currently waived.

We are accepting applications for the 2022-23 academic year (subject to space availability) Applications will be considered in priority by the order they have been received as well as other admissions priority criteria. Mid-year entry applications will be assessed ASAP and offers made within a week.

The following dates are the priority deadlines for application submissions; however, the dates are subject to review dependent upon the flow of applications.

  • 2023/2024 Entry – Oct 31, 2022
  • 2024/2025 Entry – Oct 31, 2023
  • 2025/2026 Entry – Oct 31, 2024

Applications will be considered in priority by the order they have been received as well as other admissions priority criteria. Offers of admissions will be made from December onward based on space availability and grade applied.
