Reference Request Letter to Parents

Dear Parents and Guardians,

If your child requires a reference as part of an application process to a new school we are able to assist.  In order to request a reference, please log in to SMART, using the parent log in and then click on the ‘Request a reference’ link (image below). You will be directed to a Google form.  Please fill this in and submit.

Once your request has been submitted, the Heads of Section work with all relevant teachers to ensure that a comprehensive reference is compiled.  We require a minimum of three weeks notice to prepare the reference.

When filling in applications for schools if asked for a contact from Sha Tin College please use the details below.
Middle School (Years 7 – 9) Mrs Christine Rowlands rowlandscm1@stconline.edu.hk

Senior School (Years 10 – 13) Mrs Jane Parry parryj1@stconline.edu.hk

Please note that all references are confidential.  We submit them directly to the schools, either electronically or by post.

While we appreciate that schools may request your child sit an entrance examination,  it is not possible for STC to organise testing and the required supervision, given the number of students who apply to school’s outside of Hong Kong.

You can contact British Council, or individual tuition centres who may be able to help with this arrangement. Alternatively you can contact the school and request parent supervision, especially given current COVID restrictions.

Best regards

Mrs. Jane Parry                         Mrs. Chris Rowlands
Head of Senior School           Vice Principal
