ESF Guarantees Primary School Places for Kindergarten Students

The English Schools Foundation (ESF), which is the largest provider of English language education in Hong Kong, announced on Friday, March 8th 2018, that a new ‘through-train’ system will be provided from K1 to Year 13. 

From August 2020, all students entering the first year of an ESF kindergarten will be guaranteed a place at both an ESF primary and secondary school – no interviews or assessments required.  This means that there is ‘only one assessment’ and this will take place prior to entry into one of the ESF’s five kindergartens.

Applications for K1 will open in September 2019 for children born between January – December 2017 for August 2020 entry.
