Primary 1 registration for international students

1. Overview

International students (IS) can only register for P1 during Phase 3 of the P1 Registration Exercise, after all Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents have been allocated a place under the earlier phases.

Prior to Phase 3, ISes must go through a 2-step process:
  1. Submit an online indication of interest form, available here from 9am on Tuesday, 30 May 2023 to 4.30pm on Monday, 5 June 2023, otherwise you will not be able to register in Phase 3 of the P1 Registration Exercise.
  2. We will notify you via email in October:
  • Whether your child can be offered a P1 place.
  • How to register in Phase 3 with the designated school if they are offered a place. 

Check when your child is eligible for P1 registration

You can register your child in the 2023 P1 Registration Exercise if your child is born between 2 January 2017 and 1 January 2018 (both dates inclusive).
