One of Hong Kong’s oldest schools, St Paul’s College is a Direct Subsidy Scheme (DSS) all-boys secondary school that follows the local education system.
St Paul’s College is a Direct Subsidy Scheme (DSS) school for boys that teaches the local curriculum leading to the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (DSE), as well as opportunities to study for IGCSEs. Popular with Chinese and local students, SPC was founded in 1851 by the Church of England; teaching continues to be grounded in Christianity today.
St Paul’s 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 Secondary School Places Allocation (SSPA) scheme.
