Located in Tseung Kwan O, New Territories, Invictus School (Hong Kong) will offer an English and Mandarin immersion programme to children aged three to 11 years old – and for an all-inclusive annual fee of HKD 100,000.
Invictus International School will bring a much-needed affordable option for international schooling to Hong Kong when it opens in August 2019. Located in the New Territories, this new school has annual tuition fees for Grades 1-6 of HKD 100,000, which is as much as half of that charged by some top-tier international schools in Hong Kong.
Invictus' kindergarten and primary school is due to open for the 2019-2020 academic year, subject to approval from the Education Bureau. Teaching will follow the International Primary Curriculum (IPC), which is known for its creative and thematic approach to teaching, integrated with an English and Mandarin immersion programme.
School ownership and leadership
The school is the second addition to the family of Invictus International Schools, which opened its first affordable primary school in Singapore in 2016. Invictus International School in Singapore offers a ‘back to basics’ education for annual fees of HKD 97,000, which is considerably cheaper than most international schools there.
Invictus was founded by South African entrepreneur John Fearon (a parent who felt so disgruntled with the cost of education in Singapore that he decided to found his own school). Its Singapore campus is helping to fill the gap for moderately priced quality schools, just like The Independent Grammar School: Durham is doing in the UK and GEMS Founders School is in Dubai. Since opening in 2016 it has moved to a larger but still boutique campus, expanded its student intake, and become popular with expat parents looking for an affordable, private education without the frills.
Founder John Fearon (pictured above) said: “The opening of our newest school in Hong Kong enables us to offer children the unmatched, high-quality learning experience for which Invictus has become renowned at a truly affordable rate.”
Invictus will be led by two principals – one a native English speaker and the other a native Mandarin speaker.

Campus and facilities
The waterfront campus will be located in The Monterey, which is part of the O’South Coast development and close to Tseung Kwan O Waterfront Park. Facilities will include 16 classrooms, a library, a multi-purpose hall and an indoor playground.
Admission fees and enrolment
Annual tuition fees for Grades 1-6 will be HKD 100,000; fees for kindergarten have not yet been released. Unlike many schools in Hong Kong, Invictus will not charge parents an annual levy or compulsory debenture which keeps the cost down considerably.
Invictus will have capacity for up to 100 kindergarten students and 500 primary students in Grades 1-6, and enrolment is open to students of all nationalities.
