    How to Apply

    Our staff at SBS are there at all times to help guide you through all the information you require to ensure the early days of our prospective partnership are as easy and productive as possible. Please do not hesitate to call us at any time for further advice or information. To find out more about Satit Bilingual School of Rangsit University admission process, please call us at +66-2792-7500 - 4 Mon - Fri, 08:00 - 17:00.

    At Satit Bilingual School student admissions policy is guided by:

    1. Will the student make a positive contribution to the school?
    2. Do the parents support the school’s vision, mission and concepts?
    3. Can the school provide the best opportunity for the child?
    Students’ academic achievement and language proficiency are key criteria in the admissions process.

    The cut-off date for entry to each of our grade levels is June 1st. For example, a child must be 3 by June 1st of the current year to enter K1, and 6 by 1st June of the current year to enter Primary 1. In cases where the child's birth date is very close to the cut-off date and where parents feel the child should be in a higher year level, the child will still be placed in the appropriate grade according to our admissions policy, i.e. the 'lower' grade. Children will be moved from that grade only after a period of observation and upon the recommendation by the teacher and Principal. All placements are provisional in that they may be reviewed during the child's first month at school.

    The level of English of all non-native speakers applying for Grade 4 and up will be assessed before a place can be offered. The outcome of this assessment will determine whether or not a child will need English as a Second Language (ESL) support.
