Admissions Priority

Admission priority will be given to Staff’s children, siblings of current students and then by date of application.

For International Students

Middleton International School is able to accommodate Singapore Permanent Residents and Dependent Pass holders. Children need to hold a valid pass to attend school. Parents and guardians are required to inform the school if there is a change in pass status.

International students will require a student pass if:

They do not possess a Dependent Pass or an Immigration Exemption Order
Their parents are Singapore permanent residents, but they are not
They are currently staying in Singapore on a Long Term Visit Pass (LTVP)
Neither parent has an employment pass

As an EduTrust registered school, we can assist with your child’s student pass application to the ICA (Immigration Checkpoint Authority). Middleton cannot guarantee a successful outcome of a student pass application as it is solely at ICA’s discretion. Upon successful application, Student Pass holders must meet the minimum 90% monthly attendance requirements stipulated by the ICA.

If you are holding a Student Pass in Singapore, you are only allowed to work if you meet specific requirements. Currently, Middleton students holding a Student Pass are not allowed to work in Singapore. Please refer to the MOM website for the latest information on Work Pass eligibility and exemption.

For Singapore Citizens

Singapore Government regulations require Singaporean Citizens of Primary 1 age and above, who wish to attend a Foreign System School (FSS), to obtain approval from the Ministry of Education (MOE).

Important information regarding approval requests to the MOE:

Middleton may not offer a place to a Singapore Citizen of Primary 1 age and above without first obtaining approval from the MOE for that student.
Middleton must have a spot available for the student before submitting an application for a MOE approval.
Parents may not submit applications for approval to attend an FSS to the MOE directly. All applications to the MOE must be submitted directly by Middleton.
All approvals from the MOE are considered on a case by case basis, granted entirely at the discretion of the MOE. Approval granted for one FSS is only approved for that school only and does not guarantee that approval for a different FSS will be approved.

Children applying to Pre-Nursery to Kindergarten 2 (in the Early Years programme) do not require MOE approval.
