This English-medium school 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 70,000 for Hong Kong residents, and fees are available on request for international students).
