Alba Cathay Chinese School 2023/2024 Enrolment Plan
Alba Cathay Chinese School (ACCS) is a charitable organization run by volunteers from the Edinburgh Chinese community. The school currently has weekend Mandarin Chinese and Chinese art tutoring classes at Edinburgh City Council’s Boroughmuir High School. ACCS has experienced robust growth in pupil numbers and activities in recent years thanks to the support from the local community and the increasing interest in learning Mandarin Chinese. In 2013, ACCS was awarded the prestigious “Model School for Overseas Chinese Education” by the Overseas Chinese Affairs Office of the PRC State Council.
From the new academic year 2022/23, we have returned to the normal classroom teaching at Boroughmuir High School. We will continue to do this in 2023/24.
The School is now publishing the enrolment plan for the term commencing in autumn 2023/24:
1. Prospective Pupil
Elementary level 1 for beginners or Happy Chinese Class for student with no or little Chinese knowledge. Parents or guardians wishing to enroll their child in other levels in ACCS are advised to contact the school as early as possible for available places.
2. Selection Conditions
The prospective pupil should have already been admitted to a local primary school (born before 28 Feb 2019). Proof of such primary school admission shall be produced on request by ACCS. Due to the resource restrictions, when the number of qualified children exceeds the planned enrolment number, ACCS may take into account the following factors for priority enrolment:
- i) The child has a sibling attending the school already;
- ii) The child’s parent or guardian is a language tutor at ACCS;
- iii) Under the same conditions, priority is given to the child who has an earlier birthday;
- iv) Under the same conditions, priority is given to the child who registered first;
ACCS has a Waiting List for children it cannot admit during the open admission time. Priority in the waiting list follows the same rules set out above. The waiting list operates from the date of notification by ACCS advising the parents or guardians of the school for which the child has been admitted/not admitted until the last session of the current school year. The child’s name is added to/removed from the waiting list at any time upon the request from the parents or guardian
Parents or guardians shall register the child online as soon as possible for 2023/24 admission at the school website.
The existing student is also required to register online to select the Chinese Class and/or the activity class.
Enquires shall be made using the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please see the fee section for the details of the fees.
