    ESF Announces New Admission Policy - August 2014

    ESF announced a new admission policy which comes into effect this August for children entering the 2014 school year.

    Children who are already in the ESF system and their siblings will not be impacted.

    However children attending an ESF Kindy will no longer be guaranteed an interview.

    Details of the new policy can be found here:

    "The new policy will put an end to the category system. Starting from August 2013, the admissions assessment process will be strengthened. The emphasis will be on the actual testing of the children’s English language proficiency, and on verifying the parents’ commitment to an ESF style English medium education through a parental statement and interview."

    "Children who attend an ESF International Kindergarten have in the past received priority for interview at ESF schools. Those children currently attending an ESF International Kindergarten in the 2012-13 academic year, as well as those who apply for and gain a kindergarten place in 2013-14, will continue to receive priority when they apply for a Year 1 place. When the new ESF admissions policy takes effect for applications for the 2014-15 school year, the interview priority will no longer apply."
