Your child will be assigned to an age-appropriate group. Progression is automatic based on age.
Primary School is from 4 years old to 12 years old. Full time attendance is required as part of Swiss compulsory education. Students are assigned according to their date of birth based on the Basel-Stadt (government) admissions entry requirements: exceptions are considered on a case-case basis. As for most schools, progression is not automatic but based on meeting developmental targets.
