3. Where can I check for vacancies?

We are currently full. Any applications coming in will be placed on our waitlist for possible vacancies to start in August 2018.

Our admission process will start between February and April each year. We will invite those on our waitlist according to their waiting priority for an assessment/interview if there are vacancies for the year group.

We do not take in new admission in Year 11 and 13 as this is the second year of the IGCSE and IB program.

You may wish to look for possible vacancies in other ESF secondary schools at this point.

Please contact ESF Centre http://www.esf.edu.hk/our-schools to apply.

4. How can I check for transfer of application to other ESF secondary schools?

We do not do any matching of placements for applicants. Applicants may check for vacancies with other ESF secondary schools directly. We will only transfer the application to other ESF schools upon request of the applicant and confirmation of the receiving school.

5. How can I check on my waiting status?

External – we do not disclose the waiting order. Applicants will be invited via email for assessment/interview between February and April if there are possible vacancies in the year group starting the following academic year.

Please be reminded that ESF will send an email to those applicants on the waitlist for reapplication around February.  It is important to respond to these emails, in order for ESF to have your updated information.

Internal Transfer – we will contact the parents through their current school around the end of March/early April.

6. What is Individual Nomination Right?

Nomination Rights provide a fast track entry route for children into ESF schools, providing they meet the admissions requirements.

There are limited Nomination Rights available across all year groups throughout the whole year.

The proceeds raised under the Nomination Rights scheme will be exclusively reserved for the funding of the capital projects.

Please refer to ESF website for details. http://www.esf.edu.hk/esf-nomination-rights

The application process is centrally handled by ESFC.
