    The British International School of New York uses the cut-off date of September 1st to determine which year group your child will be placed in, although we offer rolling admissions throughout the year, contingent upon there being spots available in the specific year group required.

    We also follow the British system in terms of labelling our year groups. The relevant American Grade is translated for your reference in the table below.
