Thank you for visiting the Admissions pages of The British School New Delhi. Choosing the perfect school for your child and your family can be tough, and the pandemic has made the process even more challenging.

The website offers many useful resources to help you understand our admissions process. However, we appreciate that every family, and every child, is unique with its own set of requirements and expectations. We, therefore, invite you to get in touch with us directly for any questions. Our dedicated Admissions team members would be delighted to guide and assist you through the process.


All enquiries and applications are processed through our Admissions office which can be reached by email at or by filling in the admission enquiry form.

We regret that physical visits to the school are currently suspended due to the pandemic, however, our team would be happy to meet you online on request.

We love speaking with new families and look forward to getting to know you and your children!

  • Applicants from all education systems, nationalities and backgrounds will be considered.
  • Applications from internationally mobile families will be considered throughout the year for all year groups.

Admission is dependent upon

  • a place being available in the year group;
  • the ability of the applicant to demonstrate that they can benefit from the education provided by The British School; and
  • that they would complement the international character of the school’s student population.
