Application & Deadline
The ESF system places children in Year Group according to their date of birth (1 January – 31 December). Children usually start Year 1 during the calendar year in which they turn 5. Children are never admitted early.
Applications for entry are made through the Online Admission System (OAS) accessed via the ESF website (http://www.esf.edu.hk/our-schools). For Year 1 and Year 7, application is made during a strictly limited period, September 1 to 30 of the year before they enter school. A few late applications are received each year.
Students can only apply to the school of zone according to their Hong Kong residential address. Students from overseas can only apply to the school of zone for their expected area of residence in Hong Kong. Applicants from Hong Kong and applicants from overseas have equal status. Zones are adjusted from time to time in the light of changing numbers.
Individual and Corporate Nomination Rights provide a fast track route for children into ESF schools, providing they meet the entry requirements. Please refer to details here: http://www.esf.edu.hk/esf-nomination-rights
