Admissions Process

Step 1. School Visit with Parent & Child

School visits are essential prior to enrolment. Parents can view the school facilities and meet the Academic Heads and Student Care & Admissions team to better understand the programmes offered. It is also an opportunity for the Academic Heads to determine what is the most suitable age group/class placement for the child. To schedule a school visit, please visit: https://app.annehill.school/appointment

Kindly note that parents are to bring their child along during the first visit. If the child is unable to attend, please inform the school.

Preschool Assessment – Students will be assessed on their PIES skills (Physical, Intellectual, Emotional and Social).
Primary School Assessment – Students will be assessed on their academics (Literacy and Numeracy) and readiness to learn (physical, mental and psychological readiness of the student).

Anne Hill International School reserves the right to request for documents from previous schools should we need more academic and developmental progress information.

Step 5. Class Availability

After determining a suitable class placement, the Admissions & Student Care team will check the availability of the class.
Available – This means that there is an available spot in the grade of the child’s class. The child will proceed to a formal student assessment.
Waiting List – This means that the grade of the child’s class is currently full. The Admissions & Student Care team will contact parents immediately should a spot open up. The waiting time will depend on the size of the waiting list.

Step 6. Enrolment Confirmation
