When can I submit my child’s application form? When is the deadline?

While we accept applications throughout the year, the application deadline for our main admissions process is February 27th of each year. Applications received before the deadline, applying for the next academic year (starting August), will be processed considered for the August entry. Applications which are received after the deadline will be processed if spaces are still available after all the applications before the deadline have been processed.  Please be aware that mid-school applications can be submitted but classes are often full before the new school year begins, so it is better to submit the form and supporting documents as soon as possible (see the list on the application form).

What is the next step? When can my child have an interview / assessment  test after I have submitted the application form?

We will acknowledge receipt of your application and let you know if all the required documents for application have been submitted. Assessments and tryout sessions for August entry are generally arranged in February/March/April. Please note that we charge a fee of NT$ 5,000 for each assessment.

Can I reserve a place for my child before I submit the application form?

This is not possible as each application is treated on its individual merits.

Will my child have another chance for interview / assessment if he/she fails?  How do I re-apply?

Yes, you will. If you wish to reapply, you need to pay a NT$ 2,000 reapplication fee, and will be invited for another assessment test after a minimum period of six months.

Do you accept all nationalities? Are applications prioritised?

We accept applications from any nationals (subject to government regulations) as long as the applicant holds a foreign passport. Applications may be prioritised according to such factors as nationality or language proficiency. Please see our Admissions Policy.

Can my child skip or retake a year / grade?

Although we generally try to keep students in the standard year group for their age, in certain circumstances they can retake a year / grade. It is very unlikely we will allow a year / grade to be skipped.

Do you have language support (EAL/FAL/GAL) before enrolment?

We do not usually offer EAL/FAL/GAL classes before enrolment. However, it is possible for new students to join our summer school programme, which takes place several weeks before the new school year.

Will my child have a place in school if I donate money?

No. Contributions to the running of the school have no bearing on the applications process.

Do you provide boarding?

No, we don’t. If a child’s parents are not living in Taipei, they will need to find a suitable guardian.

Does my child need to wear uniform?

Students in the British Primary Section, have to wear uniform. More information can be found here.

Do you offer any bus services?

We offer bus services to most of TES’ families, depending on location. Once a student has been accepted, we will contact you to discuss arrangements.

More information can be found here.

Do you provide school lunches?
