‘CLEARER, FASTER AND LESS STRESSFUL FOR FAMILIES’ : ESF LAUNCHES NEW ADMISSIONS POLICY

Interviews scrapped for children moving from ESF kindergarten to ESF primary school

The English Schools Foundation (ESF), today announced that they will no longer interview children who move from ESF kindergartens to one of their primary schools. Starting from September this year, the offering of a Year 1 place will be made following a period of collaborative assessment involving the child’s kindergarten and primary school teachers. Launched earlier this year, the ‘one-form’ greatly streamlined the process for parents who were making an application for their child to attend an ESF school – cutting out duplication of effort and reducing the time between application and decision. For parents who have children born in 2016, 2014 or 2008, they should apply for ESF’s K1, Years 1 and 7 places from 1 to 30 September 2018, so as to start in August 2019 www.esf.edu.hk/application-form
