Admissions Process

Step 1

Prospective students need to submit all required forms and documents online and pay a non-refundable Application Fee in order to be considered for admissions. To submit an application click here. Applications are considered in chronological order of receipt. Each applicant is reviewed individually and independently.

Step 2

Once the required forms and documents have been submitted and the Application Fee has been received, the Admissions Office and the appropriate school administration will review the application file. More information or interviews may be requested. Families will then be notified by email of the outcome.

Step 3

When a place is offered, the Facility Fee must be paid within seven calendar (7) days of receipt of the invoice. If the Facility Fee is not received within 7 calendar days, priority will be given to other applicants. The first installment of Tuition Fees and the Technology Fee, if applicable, is due on May 1st for August entry and October 1st for January entry. The Medical Examination Form will need to be completed and returned prior to the student’s start date.

Wait List

If a place is not available at the time you wish to join, your child’s name will be placed on the wait list and you will be notified as soon as a vacancy is anticipated. Please notify the Admissions Office of any changes of address or other contact details or if your circumstances change. Wait list priority is given to families with siblings.

Sibling Priority

Stamford aims to welcome all family members into our community. As such, our first admissions priority is given to families with siblings. Acceptance into grade levels with very limited places will be reserved for children with a sibling or multiple siblings already enrolled at Stamford or with applications submitted. Siblings will also be given first priority should there be a waitlist in their grade level.

Singapore Nationality/Singapore Passport Holders

Approval is required from the Ministry of Education (MOE) before a Singaporean student (6 years old and above) is allowed to attend classes at Stamford. The application for approval from the MOE will be sent as soon as a student is accepted, as required. Please note that Singaporean applicants who are 6 years old and above will be accepted onto our waitlist and no place will be reserved for the student until formal approval has been granted by the MOE.

Student Pass

Stamford will register a child requiring a Student Pass with the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) after acceptance and parents will process the application from there. Please note that applicants requiring a Student Pass will be accepted onto our waitlist and no place will be reserved for the student until formal approval has been granted by the ICA. Student Pass holders can commence classes after the student ID has been issued. Student Pass holders must meet the minimum 90% monthly attendance requirements stipulated by the ICA.

Specialized Support Program

Stamford offers a Specialized Support Program for students who require support for learning differences. The needs of eligible students will be assessed on an individual basis and parents should discuss their situation with the Admissions Office prior to making an application for enrollment.
