Step 4 - The Assessment Process

Our assessment processes have been put in place to ensure that Brighton College (Singapore) is the best school for each child we enrol and that it will be a place where they will be happy and thrive.

When we have your completed application, we will work with you to arrange a suitable time for your child’s assessment.  This may be on campus in Singapore or can also be carried out remotely, depending on each family's circumstances. 

  • The parents of children applying for Pre-Nursery will be invited to join us, with their child, for a 1:1 meeting with one of Senior Leadership team.  This meeting will last approximately 30 minutes.
     
  • Nursery and Reception children will be invited to join either an individual or group observation (with a small number of other similar age children) with one of our Early Years specialists.  The session will last around 30 minutes and will be an enjoyable and fun experience for your little one as they get to explore and experiment in one of our classrooms.
     
  • Children applying for Year 1 to Year 5 will be invited to come and spend a little longer with us as they take part in more formal assessments in English, Maths and verbal and non-verbal reasoning. The children will also spend a short amount of time meeting with one of our teacher team. 

In addition to the above, the information provided in your application (e.g. school reports, Child Development Form and the Pupil Reference Form) will also inform your child's assessment. 

Step 5 - Receiving an Offer

Following your child's assessment, our Academic Leadership Team will review your application and families will usually be notified of the outcome within 72 hours.

Successful applicants will be sent an official offer letter.

Written email acceptance of the offer, along with a completed Student Contract and payment of the enrolment fee within 14 calendar days will confirm your child's place.

Should a place in the relevant year level not be currently available, our Admissions Team will support you in joining our waitlist.

Step 6 - Confirming your Acceptance

Once you have formally accepted the place of an offer, completed the Student Contract and paid the Enrolment Fee, the following information will be required before the first day of school:

  1. - Copy of your Child’s Immigration Status (i.e. Dependent Pass / Permanent Resident Re-Entry Permit / Immigration Exemption Order).
     
  2. - A completed Health Declaration Form
     
  3. - Copy of your Child’s immunisation record*

 Our Admissions Team will support you in providing the above to you.

They will have to do so before they proceed with their applications to MOM or ICA for long-term stay in Singapore. Please note that this process can take in excess of one (1) month.  Existing pass holders will not be subject to the requirements when renewing their pass or applying for a new pass.
