Age Guideline

These age guidelines follow the UK suggested guidelines. We are aware that the HK guidelines differ slightly and we will review this as well.

The placement of a child in the appropriate year group is a joint decision of the school and the parents. Many factors will go into consideration when selecting the most appropriate year group, such as the child’s date of birth and the results of their assessment.

The age guidelines for entry for the academic year of 2021 - 2022 are as follows:
