Primary 1 registration for international students

2. Indicate your interest

To register your child for primary school, you will first need to indicate your interest by filling up our online form from 9am on Tuesday, 2 June 2020 to 4.30pm on Monday, 8 June 2020.

The online indication of interest is now closed.

If you need to amend the particulars provided in your submitted form, please fill up our online amendment form. You may be required to upload a copy of the supporting document for the amendment.

If you want to withdraw your application after indicating your interest, you will have to fill up our online withdrawal form. You will need to upload a copy of the acknowledgement email of your initial online indication of interest.

By withdrawing your application, your child will not be able to participate in the Phase 3 registration in October. However, if your child becomes a Singapore Citizen or Permanent Resident during the P1 Registration Exercise from July to August, they can participate in the next phase they are eligible for.

What you need to know

  • An indication of interest is not considered registration.
  • Admission is not guaranteed due to limited vacancies, as priority is given to Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents.
  • You cannot proceed with registration and we will not consider any appeals if you miss the submission deadline to indicate your interest. If this happens, or if your child is subsequently not offered a place in a mainstream school, you may wish to consider alternatives, such as private schools.
  • Posting results are final and appeals will not be considered. Schools will also not accept any walk-in applications for admissions or transfers.

  1. Child’s details (birth certificate, passport, immigration exemption order, Dependant’s Pass, Student’s Pass, Long Term Visit Pass, if any).
