Located in the New Territories, Anfield School (Tai Wai) offers a British primary education founded on Catholic principles.
Anfield School (Tai Wai) is a Catholic primary school for boys and girls that has recently moved to a purpose-built, well-equipped campus in a scenic location near the Lion Rock Country Park. Founded in 1999, this family of schools also includes two pre-schools – the Kowloon Tong campus (ages three to six) and the Whampoa campus (ages two to five).
The Tai Wai campus for children aged 6 to 11 has just over 600 students from 10 nationalities, with two classes in each year group. Learning follows the Early Years Foundation Stage (nursery and kindergarten) and the National Curriculum for England (Years 1 to 6), and there is a strong emphasis on Chinese (Mandarin) as a second language, as well as lessons in French and Spanish. There’s a strict homework policy, with 30 minutes set in Years 1 – 2, 40 minutes in Years 3 – 4, and an increasing amount in Years 5 – 6 .
A Council of International Schools (CIS) accreditation report in 2016 said:
“The school is particularly strong in the area of pastoral and academic support for students. The Catholic nature of the school ensures students develop an understanding of faith in today’s society, but also nurtures a commitment to the ‘Anfield Family’ and a sense of belonging.”
Anfield School has a standout programme for special educational needs. Its St Bosco Centre caters for children with moderate learning difficulties including autism spectrum disorder, speech and language disorders/communication difficulties, and developmental delay.
