New UK Primary School Opens in August 2021

A new British primary school will open for students aged five to 10 years in Kowloon this August. Opening in 2021 the school is clearly brave as it takes on the strong Covid headwinds, and with the name Oxbridge, clearly academically ambitious too.

2021 is very much for the brave when it comes to starting new ventures, but one new international primary school has cast any doubts aside, and is due to open in Hong Kong later this year. Admissions are 'open' for the Kowloon-based Oxbridge School, which plans to offer a British-based education to students aged five to 10 years (Years 1-5).

While global education groups are postponing school openings worldwide due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, this new standalone primary school plans to open in August. 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 promises small class sizes of up to 15 students for a total of 250 pupils, 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.

The school will be run by founding principal John Shooter who has previous experience working in private schools in the UK, and teachers are currently being recruited from the UK, mainland China and Hong Kong.

Facilities will include specialist classrooms, a library and a swimming pool; due to limited outdoor space, the school for will use a nearby sports centre for many of its sporting activities.

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.
