The essentials of enrollment

Entry requirements

  • The student must possess a foreign (non-Chinese) passport. As per Chinese law, we cannot admit children who are citizens of mainland China. At least one parent and the student must also have a foreign passport, which must be presented at the time of application.
  • Demonstrate age-appropriate adequacy in the English language and educational skills as determined by an interview, assessment and/or educational records.
  • All forms and paperwork must be completed prior to the interview or assessment.
  • ECC applicants must be toilet-trained by the time they enter the school.
  • In grades or programs for which there are more applications than spaces available, suitable applicants within the following categories may be offered priority enrollment: children of LifePlus staff; eligible siblings of a student already attending; students currently attending other LifePlus international schools; and applicants with higher levels of English proficiency.
  • If a student has passed the necessary admission requirements but there is no space available, he/she may be placed in a waiting pool. This waiting pool is dissolved at the end of the school year and parents need to re-apply if they wish to be considered for enrollment for the following school year. We encourage parents to look for other educational options while their child is in the waiting pool.

We consider each candidate holistically, reviewing academic growth, social and behavioral backgrounds, as well as English proficiency. Each candidate’s application is reviewed by our enrollment decision team, which consists of the Admissions Team and Principals.

Entrance assessments

Readiness interview (30 minutes).

Grades 1+
English language assessment and readiness interview (1–2 hours).

English language assessment
Once an assessment date is decided upon, students Grade 1 and higher will undergo a series of reading, writing, speaking and listening tests to determine if they are academically and socially ready for the grade level for which they are applying. This assessment will measure the ability of a student to listen, speak, read and write in English. The admissions assessment may require other academic skills as well.

After the admissions assessment is completed, the parents will be informed of the results via email. Upon acceptance, any ELS recommendations and placements will be made as necessary and chargeable as appropriate.

The school does not practice acceleration of students (skipping a grade) in cases of high achievement. New students who are non-native English speakers may be placed at a lower grade level at the principal’s discretion. Students will not be placed in a certain grade, class or level based on the parent’s preference for a certain teacher.
