Secondary 1 (S1): receive school allocation results

5. Make an appeal

If you assess that your posted secondary school is unable to accommodate your child’s physical health or special learning needs, you may appeal for a transfer. Appeals can be filed at your posted secondary school on the next day after the posting results have been released.

Things to remember about appealing for a transfer:

  • Appeals will only be considered for students with:
    • Serious medical conditions, such as chronic heart conditions or kidney problems.
    • Dyslexia or Autism Spectrum Disorder.
    • Physical disabilities, such as those requiring the use of a wheelchair or crutches.
  • If you intend to appeal for transfer, your child must still report to their posted school on reporting day.
  • The staff at your child’s posted secondary school will help file your appeal.
  • MOE will respond to all appeals by early January.
  • Students seeking transfer should continue to attend their posted secondary school until their transfer is approved.
  • Transfers are subject to vacancies at the requested transfer school.
