Po Leung Kuk Choi Kai Yau School offers a bilingual education from primary through to college at an impressive campus in the New Territories.
Founded in 2002, Po Leung Kuk Choi Kai Yau School is an all-through private school that blends bilingualism with UK and IB programmes.
The school’s “forward-looking curriculum” focuses on bilingualism in the primary school, where there’s a co-tutor system and children study in both Chinese and English; bilingualism is further encouraged through field trips, language competitions, and the wide use of Chinese and English books. In Years 6 – 10, teaching is based on the National Curriculum for England and students sit IGCSEs in Year 10; in Years 11 – 12, students follow the IB Diploma Programme.
The teacher to student ratio is 1:10, with around 60% being Western teachers and 40% being Chinese.
Facilities at the HKD 400 million campus in Piper Hill include science labs, music rooms, D&T workshop, food technology rom, textiles room, visual art and design rooms, Mac lab and IT labs, indoor swimming pool, 1,000-seat auditorium, library, lecture theatre, sports courts, football pitches, and covered playground.
Fees are at the lower end of the scale for an international education in Hong Kong, and range from HKD 80,102 – 122,309.

Principal Dr Lau Siu Ling said:
"It has been a difficult two years for our students due to the challenges posed by the pandemic. Students and teachers had to adapt to a new platform of online learning for most of the IB Diploma curriculum. We are proud to observe that our students have managed to build resilience and overcame many challenges and have excelled in their internal assessments and examinations."
