Assured School Placement

We will provide a list of schools with vacancies for you to choose from based on your residential address, providing you with greater certainty and convenience. Learn more about the application process.

If you have no preference of schools, you can apply for a place through the Assured School Placement. We will guarantee your child a place in a school with vacancies as near to your residential address as possible.

How to apply

You can follow these steps to apply for a school placement:

  • Inform us using the Application Form for School Placement for Returning Singaporeans within 3 months of the intended date of school admission.
  • We will identify a list of schools that have vacancies for you to choose from, based on the residential address indicated in your application form. This will take approximately 3 working days.
  • Once a school place is confirmed, it will be guaranteed and reserved for your child. 
  • Contact the school to arrange for any pre-admission procedures closer to your return date. Schools may conducted school-based tests and interview to determine the level and class or course for your child before they start school.

If a permanent Singapore address is not available at the point of this application, you will have to provide an intended residential area in Singapore for us to process your request.

Note: Schools will generally not admit students in the final term of the academic year (i.e. October to November), as this will not be educationally beneficial to your child. Hence, if you apply for admission after September, we will process your application and inform you by end December for admission in the following year.
