Moving on to Primary School

ESF International Kindergartens provide an ideal preparation for school. Most of our children move on to an ESF primary school or to an ESF Private Independent School, and others secure places at other international schools.

Our teaching methods include aspects of inquiry, exploration and investigation and the IB PYP curriculum, as do those of the ESF Primary schools. This helps provide continuity in the learning experiences for all the children who move onto an ESF.

Attendance at an ESF International Kindergarten is no guarantee of either an interview or a place at an ESF or ESF PI school. To receive priority for an interview, students must have attended an ESF International Kindergarten for the two terms prior to the primary school interview.*

If you wish to apply for a place at an ESF or ESF PI school, please refer to their individual websites directly, for their separate application forms and procedures. Central applications for Year 1 is 1-30 Sepember each year.

*Students recently arrived from overseas are exempt from the two terms requirement. Students graduating from K2 in the first year of operation of the new Tung Chung kindergarten are also exempt.
