Admissions

“We are currently accepting applications for the 2022/23 academic year. Please submit an online application at https://www.esf.edu.hk/application-form.”

Welcome to Admissions

We are delighted that you are considering applying to Bradbury School.

We are a lively and dynamic community where joyful learning and working in partnership with parents is important to us. Bradbury School is an established school with a well-deserved reputation for excellence in learning and teaching.

All lessons, with the exception of Chinese, are conducted in English. For this reason children have to demonstrate, at an informal interview, that they can both speak and understand English. From Year 2, children need to be able to read and write English as well, at a level commensurate with their peers. Eligibility for admission to our school also depends on the residential status of the child, as determined by the Immigration Department. Children in Hong Kong on a visitor or student visa are not eligible for a place in an ESF school.

ESF is an all-through system. After graduation, all primary students are guaranteed a place according to the associated secondary school for Year 7.

Learn more about our school by visiting us in person!

All application procedures are handled centrally at ESF. Find out how to make an application to join us in the Admissions Process section.

Our friendly and helpful admissions team will be delighted to help you through the process and answer any questions that you may have.

We look forward to welcoming you to our ESF family.
