There’s good news for parents as more primary and secondary places are now available in Kowloon for the new 2021-22 academic year. New standalone primary and secondary schools are opening this month (August), offering parents more choice in terms of curricula, tuition fees, and location.

Read on to discover which international schools are opening and where...

Nord Anglia International School Hong Kong 



NAIS Hong Kong is opening a new standalone secondary school in Kwun Tong, Kowloon. The new campus in Yuet Wah Street was due to open at the start of the 2021-22 academic year, but is still awaiting approval from the Education Bureau.

This is the latest addition to the Nord Anglia family of schools in Hong Kong, which also includes NAIS Lam Tin and dedicated pre-school campuses in Sai Kung and Tai Tam.

In line with its Lam Tim all-through campus, the new NAIS Hong Kong (Kwun Tong) will follow the National Curriculum for England, which includes core subjects and specialist teaching in art, music, drama, PE, Mandarin, Spanish, and computing. Year 10 and 11 students will work towards their IGCSE examinations, and Years 12 and 13 study the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP).

Facilities at Kwun Tong include science laboratories; dance, drama, music, art and visual media rooms; a learning resource centre; a full-size sports hall; an indoor swimming pool; and an auditorium. 

Annual tuition fees for the 2021-2022 academic year range from HKD 190,190 for Years 7-11 to HKD 192,010 for Years 12-13.

Oxbridge School



This standalone international primary school opens in Kowloon at the end of August 2021, offering a British-based education to students aged five to 10 years (Years 1 – 5). Located in Hung Hom, Oxbridge School will follow the National Curriculum for England, and a dedicated teacher will support students with English as a Second Language in Year 1. 

Oxbridge School promises small class sizes of up to 15 students, who will be taught by subject specialists for art, science, geography, history, ICT, PE, music, and library and information studies. A Mandarin curriculum will be offered to both native and non-native speakers.

Founding principal John Shooter, has previous experience working in private schools in the UK, and teachers have been recruited from the UK, Mainland China, and Hong Kong.

Annual tuition fees for the 2021 – 2022 academic year will be HKD 128,000, which is mid-range for Hong Kong; however, unlike many schools in Hong Kong, there is no capital levy or debenture to pay. 

Bloom KKCA Academy



Bloom KKCA Academy is a small standalone primary school in Kowloon, offering a bilingual programme to children in Grades 1-6. It promises to be a very forward-looking school with a strong STEM programme, and a focus on innovative, project-based learning.

Opening in August 2021 subject to approvals from the Education Bureau, Bloom offers 50/50 exposure to both Chinese (simplified characters) and English to enable students to "think, create, and communicate" in both languages. There are two pathways: one for students who are learning Chinese as a foreign language or a second language, and one for students whose native language is Putonghua or Cantonese.

Its challenging but balanced curriculum also includes individual and group music lessons, art lessons at the neighbouring Hong Kong Jockey Club Creative Arts Centre (JCCAC), and sporting activities including basketball, dance, fencing, soccer and tennis.

Annual tuition fees are HKD 169,950 for Grades 1-5, and HKD 174,900 for Grade 6, which are payable in 11 monthly instalments. Unlike many schools in Hong Kong, there is no development fee or capital levy to pay.
