Primary 1 registration for international students

2. Indicate your interest

To register your child for P1, indicate your interest by submitting an online form here from 9am on Tuesday, 30 May 2023 to 4.30pm on Monday, 5 June 2023.

What you need to know

  • An indication of interest is not considered registration. It is also not first come, first served. 
  • 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 P1 place in a mainstream school, you may wish to consider alternatives, such as private schools or taking part in the Admissions Exercise for International Students (AEIS) for admission to Primary 2 in the following year.
  • Posting results are final and appeals will not be considered. Schools will also not accept any walk-in applications for admissions or transfers.
