Welcome to Raffles International School (RIS). We thank you for considering our school for the education of your child.
RIS attracts students from all over the world from many different curricula. Our main admissions intake is at the start of the Academic year in September, however we have an on-going admissions policy and we admit students throughout the year dependent on availability of places.
We welcome students of all abilities, nationalities and religions who, in the school’s opinion, will benefit from the rigorous academic, personal and social programmes on offer. We are proud of our visible commitment to diversity and international mindedness.
The school is inclusive and all efforts are made to accommodate different learning needs and styles. The school has a Learning Support programme. Students needing Learning Support may be admitted if it is believed that the school can offer appropriate support and that the children can function in a mainstream classroom.
