Frequently Asked Questions

  • Admission What are my child’s chances of being enrolled at FIS?

    Chances to join FIS vary across our streams and year groups as well as from one academic year to the next.

    We accept applications all year-round and should a place become available, we contact the applicant first on the waiting list for the respective year group.

    As availability depends on our departing students, we cannot guarantee a fixed number of available places each year but we observe higher chances to join us at Reception Year and on Secondary in International Stream, at Moyenne Section in the French Stream.

  • Admission Does FIS follow a specific Admissions calendar?

    Your application is welcomed all year long.
    When approaching the school year you applied for, we will contact you and share with you the next steps of your child’s application.

  • Admission My child holds a HK passport only, can he/she access all campuses?

    FIS welcomes HK passport holders but alike all other international schools, we must comply with the quotas imposed by the Education Bureau and Immigration Department.

    However please note that our quota is stricter on our TKO campus, we may not be able to offer a place for this campus despite having passed the entrance assessment. At this stage, you may be offered to join our JL campus instead.

    Should your child hold any other passport, please make sure you submit it at the time of the application or contact our Admissions team directly.

  • Admission When can my child start school at the earliest?

    For our French stream, school starts from Moyenne Section and children must be aged 4 before 31 December of the entry school year of entry.

    For our International stream, school starts from Reception Year and children must be aged 4 before 31 August of the school year of entry.

  • Admission My child does not hold a HK visa yet, will he/she be able to start school?

    Your child does not need to hold an HK visa throughout the Admission process.
    Then, in accordance with the Education Bureau and Immigration Department’s regulations, only students in possession of a valid immigration status or visa can be enrolled in Hong Kong schools. Failing this, the French International School of Hong Kong will not be able to accept your child to enter the school’s premises.

  • Admission Do you organise school tours/open days?

    We provide school tours twice a month to our Jardine’s Lookout, Tseung Kwan O and Blue Pool Road campuses.
    You can book your visit on our page “Campus visit” where you will see all available dates left.
    As places book fast, we recommend you to visit often as there may be some last-minute space due to late cancellations.
    We run also several Talk & Tours throughout the year with a focus on Kindergarten and Primary cycles.
    Please check our website regularly to be kept informed of upcoming dates.
