We accept applications from children born between August 2020 and December 2020 for the 2023-2024 Nursery class. It is our usual practice to admit students based on year of birth. Exceptions may be made following a review of all admission requirements in cases where a student has been accelerated or kept back a year.

Applications are not considered on a first-come-first-served basis. We will arrange interviews after parents submit the online application for their children.

The typical application ratio for our entry years is 10:1, so for every ten applications we receive we only have room to admit one student.

St. Nicholas’ is committed to honouring relationships with legacy families and applicants with siblings attending the school. Children, grandchildren and cousins of alumni and siblings will be interviewed but will go through the same process as all other applicants.

Late applications are accepted on an individual basis. Please contact us at [email protected] to inquire. This applies to both entry year and limited-entry year applications.

Mid-year applications are accepted on a case-by-case basis, which depends on whether we still have spaces available at the time of the year. Please contact us at [email protected] to inquire.

When space exists at a limited-entry level following re-enrollment of current students in April, we review all completed candidate files and select two or three children per available space for an assessment. We understand that many families, including some legacy and sibling families, may be disappointed not to hear from us. Our main goal is admitting the best students while managing the expectations of possible outcomes for all families.

Parents may modify any information on the submitted online application form in the online application system. Please enter the application reference number and registered e-mail address to retrieve your child’s application. Our system will be updated with any edited information.

After parents have submitted the application form online, an application reference number will be displayed on the confirmation page. Please print and save the confirmation page for your reference. Parents will also receive a confirmation letter in their registered e-mail.

Upon submission of the online application, parents will be led to the confirmation page with the application reference number. The system will also generate a confirmation letter that is immediately sent to the registered e-mail address provided by the parent in the online application form. Please print and save the confirmation e-mail for your record. Therefore, please make sure that the e-mail address entered in the online application form is correct.

I have successfully submitted the application form online, but I have not received the confirmation e-mail. What should I do?

There may be a few reasons why this has occurred:

  1. The confirmation e-mail may have been incorrectly labelled as spam. Solution: Please check your mailbox’s spam folder to see if the confirmation e-mail is in the folder. Please also add [email protected] and [email protected] to your safety email list to ensure that future e-mails from us will not be categorized as spam again.
  2. Parents may have mistakenly entered the wrong e-mail address in the online application form. Solution: Please e-mail [email protected] and state the applicant’s name, application reference number, birth certificate number, date of birth and correct e-mail address.
  3. Other technical issues. Please e-mail [email protected] and state the applicant’s name, application reference number, birth certificate number, date of birth and correct e-mail address.

Please e-mail [email protected] and state the applicant’s name, application reference number, birth certificate number and date of birth. We will resend application confirmation e-mail.

We understand that sometimes report cards don’t tell the whole story. Prior to the assessment, we will e-mail parents a questionnaire to fill out enabling us to better understand the child’s habits and characteristics, parents’ expectations of their child and the family’s background. Please bring along the completed questionnaire on the day of the assessment. Once you’ve submitted your application and the required documents, please contact the Admissions Office to discuss submitting any additional documents. In terms of co-curricular achievement, we gain a better understanding through the assessment. If you would like to bring additional documents as evidence of co-curricular achievement to your assessment, they will be added to your file at that time. However, we will not accept more than two documents or a total of 10 pages.
