Special arrangement for incoming families

The ESF introduced the Nomination Rights scheme in November 2012 to facilitate any family wishing to ‘fast track’ on a school’s wait list. Corporate Nominees gain first priority for admissions. Individual Nomination Rights Nominees will gain a priority behind siblings. All applicants are required to satisfy our entry requirements for admissions. Please refer to the ESF website for details: http://www.esf.edu.hk/esf-nomination-rights.
