The Satit Bilingual School student admissions policy is guided by:

  1. Will the student make a positive contribution to the school?
  2. Do the parents support the school’s vision, mission and concepts?
  3. Can the school provide the best opportunity for the child?

Students’ academic achievement and language proficiency are key criteria in the admissions process.

Applications for admission to SBS are accepted at anytime during the academic year, which typically runs from mid August to early June.

Admission is open to students of all nationalities and races. The school attempts to meet the needs of students with dietary, religious or other restrictions however, no guarantee is made by the school that all individual needs can be met.

Application for admission at all levels requires the completion of the enrolment form. Admission is subject to the payment of the appropriate enrolment fee. Students will be placed in their correct age group, apart from exceptional circumstances. The reasons for these exceptions would only be in the best interests of the education of the child as determined by the school and requires approval from the Head of School or his/her designee.
When doubt exists as to the reason for leaving a previous school, the Head of School or his/her designee will contact the previous school, prior to enrollment.
Final approval for admission lies with the Head of School.

The cut-off date for entry to each of our grade levels is August 1st. For example, a child must be 3 by August 1st of the current year to enter K1, and 6 by 1st August of the current year to enter Primary 1.
The level of English of all non-native speakers applying for Grade 3 and up will be assessed before a place can be offered. The outcome of this assessment will determine whether or not a child will need English as an Additional Language (EAL) support.
Our staff at SBS are here to help guide you through all the information required to ensure the early days of our prospective partnership are as easy and productive as possible. Please do not hesitate to contact us for further advice or information.
