GT (Ellen Yeung) College is a secondary school that’s dedicated to developing the talents of gifted students in Hong Kong.

Founded in 1996, GT (Ellen Yeung) College is Hong Kong’s only secondary school that’s dedicated to teaching gifted students. Located in the New Territories, this English-medium school combines life education, talent development, and education in the sciences and creativity to develop the talents of gifted children. Although the school says it practises Small Class Teaching (SCT), class sizes here range from 26-28 students.

GT College has a largely local and Chinese student body. Teaching follows the local New Senior Secondary Curriculum (NSS), and students sit for the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education Examination (HKDSE). All students are encouraged to take part in co-curricular activities including club and interest groups, talent classes, accelerated classes, sports Friday and gifted programmes.

The school is a Direct Subsidy Scheme (DSS) school, which means that it receives a subsidy from the government. The DSS scheme was introduced by the Education Bureau in 1991 to help improve the offering of private education in Hong Kong. DSS schools have the freedom to design their own curriculum and set their own school fees, although they must focus on offering a curriculum that targets local students and prepares them for local examinations.

As with all DSS schools, fees at GT College are significantly cheaper than international schools, and it has its own admissions policy rather than following the government’s Primary One Admission system (POA) or Secondary School Places Allocation (SSPA) scheme. Fees range from HKD 38, 280 in Grade 7 to HKD 42,680 in secondary.

As you’d expect GT College is a selective school that accepts students with a strong academic record, including at least 2 A and 1 B grade in Chinese, English and maths, as well as awards and achievements.
