Admissions Policy

Kingsgate International School is a school that delivers its core curriculum in English. We also offer Mandarin, as an option delivered by a bilingual teacher. Other languages and programs will be expanded in the near future.

Our school philosophy is that we believe that it is essential that all children who enroll at Kingsgate International School have the capacity to have their needs met by our learning environment. Our decisions centre on matching the student’s needs with our program capacity.


Age Requirements

Our first consideration for year-level placement is determined by the child’s age by September 1 of the enrollment year.
By September 1:

  • Nursery must be 3 years of age
  • Reception must be 4 years of age
  • Year 1 must be 5 years of age
  • Year 2 must be 6 years of age

We will also consider the child’s developmental age and ability to complete the program both socially and academically.

For Year 3 and above, year-level placement depends on the child’s previous school curriculum, year level, and their demonstrated academic ability within that year level.


Language and Academic Proficiency

The Kingsgate International School is a school that delivers its core curriculum in English. We also offer Bahasa Melayu and Mandarin, delivered by a high quality local teacher.

All students will be expected to demonstrate an acceptable level of fluency in English, or the capacity to achieve an acceptable level of fluency appropriate for the year, to be accepted for admission.
