You can apply for your child's school transfer through our online system.

What you need to know before applying online:
  • Your child will be offered a school nearer to your new residential address which has available vacancies.
  • You will not be able to indicate your choice of school and the school offered might not be your preferred school as vacancies are subjected to availability.
  • You will need your Singpass to log in. Find out how to register for Singpass and 2-Factor Authentication (2FA) if you don't have one.
  • You can use this guide (406KB) to familiarise yourself with the online form.
  • It will take approximately 10 minutes to complete the form.

As a single parent, you can apply online if only your name is on your child's birth certificate, or if your spouse has passed away.
