Prospective Families Guide

ISA welcomes all students regardless of their language level in English and/or Chinese up to Year 6.

After Year 6, students need a reasonable level of English to proceed into Middle School classes.

Students applying for Early Years and Primary School are asked to attend an observation day as part of our enrolment assessment.

Students applying for admission to Middle School sit entrance tests in English, Mathematics and Chinese.

Once accepted, students may be admitted at any time during the academic year.

The School reserves the right to deny admission to any applicant if, in the School's opinion, there are reasons to believe that admission would not be in the best interest of the applicant or the School.



Our class numbers are small to ensure every child receives individual attention and support.

Parents automatically become members of the Parent-Teacher Association (PTA).

Parents who join the ISA community are welcome to attend PTA meetings and events.

Parents are expected to honour all contractual obligations indicated in the registration form and behave respectfully in their interactions with all members of the school community.

We endeavour to create a positive and harmonious home-school relationship.

Grade Placement


Students are assigned to classes primarily on the basis of age.

However, factors such as previous records, aptitude and achievement, physical and emotional development and other relevant details are also considered.

The final decision rests with the Head of School.

Students should be in the age range shown below, by September 1st of the school year.
