Enrolment requirements at our international School
Unlike other international schools in Singapore applications for admissions to GESS can be submitted at any time during the academic year and acceptance is subject to availability. GESS reserves the right to decline student applications which do not meet the academic, language or personal expectations of the school.
Final acceptance and enrolment are subject to the school’s principal decision and the school receiving all required information. Only children enrolled before 30th April in the Kindergarten / Pre-Primary classes of the current school year will get automatic placement in the next school year for our Foundation or Grade 1 classes, subject to our usual terms / conditions and educational decision-making.
As an international school the GESS accepts students of all nationalities. English is the language of instruction in our European Section. In the German Section most classes are taught in German, however, we offer a differentiated English programme in this school section as well. Furthermore, some courses are taught in English in the German Section's High School classes.
Students applying for entry into Grade 6 to 11 of our European Section have to take the IB specific English test online, either in or out of Singapore. In some cases, additional tests in maths and science might be required.
Students applying for entry into our German Section will be evaluated based on their past report card and grades. In exceptional cases, placement tests might be necessary for the student's benefit. Admission into Grade 11 and 12 of the German Section might require the approval of the German Standing Conference of the Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs in particular cases.
