International students can study the local DES curriculum and the IBDP at St. Paul’s Co-educational College, which is a DSS school with a predominantly local student body.

One of the oldest schools in Hong Kong, St. Paul’s Co-educational College (SPCC) is an English medium school that has a largely local student body. However, the school does enrol students from overseas and mainland China to study Hong Kong’s DES curriculum in Year 11 (F3) and the IB Diploma Programme in Years 12 to 13 (F4).

SPCC 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 but they must focus on offering a curriculum that targets local students and prepares them for local examinations.

As with all DSS schools, it has its own admissions policy rather than following the government’s Primary One Admission system (POA) or Secondary School Places Allocation (SSPA) scheme.

43.3 100% 45 13 95.8%      

The 2021 IB cohort of 48 celebrated a high average score of 43.3 (a rise on last year's score of 42); 13 students scored the highest 45, while 21 scored 44. 71% of students achieved 44 or above.

SPCC remains at the top of the list in Hong Kong for Oxbridge offers. From Cambridge, students received offers to study law, natural sciences, economics, mathematics, HSPS and computer science. Other students are off to top universities including Imperial College London, LSE, UCL and King’s College London in the UK, and Cornell University, Yale University, Johns Hopkins University, and UC Berkeley in the US. 

The school adds:

"We are excited to also see students pursue paths that are generally less travelled, including one student who will pursue film production at Emerson College and another who has received an offer to continue their music passion alongside their academics at Oberlin College and Oberlin Conservatory of Music."
