International students looking for a Catholic secondary education in Hong Kong Island, could consider the DSS-funded St Paul’s Convent.

St Paul’s Convent is a Catholic secondary school for girls aged 11 – 18 years. While the majority of the student body are Hong Kong residents, the school is open to international students; there is an option to take IGCSE and BTEC subjects in Secondary 4 and A Levels in Secondary 5 – 6 in place of the local Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE).

The secondary section of St Paul’s shares a campus in Causeway Bay with the primary and pre-school sections. Facilities include a hall, indoor heated swimming pool, covered playground, garden, netball/basketball courts, science labs, library, IT centre, dance studio, video-broadcasting studio, and a rooftop classroom.

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, and its annual tuition fees are significantly lower than at other international schools (HKD 25,000 – 27,500).

If you are the owner or the principal of the school and note any inaccuracies, or would like to update data, you can now open an account with us. You will also be able to add admissions availability per year group, and advertise current job vacancies. This is a free service. Please help us keep prospective parents up to date with your latest information.
