Admissions

Thank you for your interest in The Perse School Singapore. We are a British school with an academic year that runs from Aug – July, however, we accept children throughout the year subject to the interview process. Children must have turned 5 by 1st September of that year in order to join Year 1.

At The Perse School Singapore, we believe that a child’s attitude towards learning is far more important than aptitude in a specific language or subject area. We strive to be transparent with parents at each stage of the admissions process, and consider all applications on an individual basis, keeping in mind circumstances surrounding each child.

What are the entry requirements to enrol your child? 

The Perse School Singapore is a non-selective school with a mixed ability, however our Principal or Curriculum Coordinator meet with each child for a short entrance assessment. We are able to offer out places for children that have:

  • English as their working language. An age appropriate fluency in English language (speaking, reading, writing and comprehension).
  • Please note there is no provision to teach children who are at an early stage of acquiring English language skills.
  • Individual learning needs, which can be largely met within the mainstream classroom and without significant additional adult support.
  • The right to study in Singapore.
  • A positive attitude towards learning!

The Perse School Singapore Admissions Process

*Please note we can only accept children who hold a Dependent Pass or who are Permanent Resident Holders in Singapore.
Additional Processes if Required
  • In class observation may be needed for confirmed or suspected additional educational needs.
  • When an in-class observation is not possible, and if expert assessments are more than 12 months old, additional assessments will be required from a (recommended) provider.
