One of Hong Kong’s newest schools, Mount Kelly School Hong Kong (MKSHK) opened in 2018 to offer a British education to expat and local families. As well as having a strong focus on Chinese education, this standalone primary school prepares students for the Common Entrance exams in Years 7 and 8*. Parents can expect small class sizes, with an average of just 15 pupils per class; a mainly British team of teaching staff; and an extended school day that gives students time to focus on academia and extra-curricular activities.

* This will be especially important for parents wanting their children to enter selective private boarding schools in the United Kingdom.
