International students, who do not possess a Dependent’s Pass (DP) or an Immigration Exemption Order (IEO), are required to apply for a Student’s Pass with the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority of Singapore (ICA) after receiving the acceptance letter for full-time studies at Middleton International School. Student’s Pass holders are allowed to commence class after the formalities of the student’s pass application is duly completed. LTVP holders can commence class after the Letter of Consent (LOC) or Student’s Pass is issued by the ICA. LOC’s are valid for the duration of the registered course and would have to be renewed every year. The approval of the Student’s Pass application is solely at the discretion of the ICA. Attendance Requirement Student’s Pass holders are required to attend school regularly, as stipulated by the ICA. Attendance is compulsory. Middleton is required to inform the ICA or cancel the student’s pass if:
  1. The student fails to have 90% attendance rate per month without valid reason; or
  2. The student fails to attend school for a continuous period of 7 days

The Student Contract is a legal document that protects and assures the rights and conditions of the Student whilst enrollment into a Private Education Institution (PEI) and in the case of Middleton International School, it is a legal requirement that all students must enter into a Student Contract.

Middleton executes a Standard MIS Student Contract for every Student for all

  • new enrolment;
  • progressive enrolment into a new level; and/or
  • change of course or level (subjected to the approval of the school).


Middleton signs a Student Contract accompanied by a Form 12 – Advisory Note to Students with the Student after a place has been offered to the student and that place has been accepted by the Student (parents/legal guardians where a student is younger than 18 years of age).  This student contract is a critical document that helps to minimize future disputes and therefore, it is essential that it is be completely understood by the Student (parents/legal guardians where a student is younger than 18 years of age) prior to enrolment and or signing of a new contract. For more information, you can also refer to The Committee of Private Education here. Download a sample of the MIS student contract here.
Middleton International School has a tamper-proof and stringent students’ attendance monitoring system.

In accordance with the CPE Regulations, all attendance records must be accurate, up-to-date, and kept until the students graduate. Timetables for all courses are readily available upon CPE’s request for attendance verification.

Attendance data will be analysed for review and compliance purposes.

Class attendance is taken by the homeroom teacher at the beginning of the day. Any students arriving at school late are required to check-in at the school reception for attendance before going to their classrooms. The class Attendance data will be archived for 5 years before disposal.
