Our Preparatory Years (PY) Programme is one of the most highly sought-after in Hong Kong for its focus on holistic development and bilingualism. The two-year programme offers young children a balanced education catering to their physical, intellectual, moral, emotional and social development. Our preparatory year students progress seamlessly onto our primary programme and secondary section. Most of our students in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme started at the school in the Preparatory Years and Primary section. While we are known for our academically rigorous programme, we offer a broad-based education in which every child is given the care and support to help them flourish and enjoy the process of learning.
Qualified Professionals in Early Childhood Education
Our teachers are qualified who are trained personnel in early childhood education. This ensures to meet the needs of each child and recognise every child’s special abilities. Every class is also assigned a classroom assistant to support teachers in meeting the students’ needs. The teacher to pupil ratio is approximately 1:11.
Bilingual in English and Chinese
All our subjects except for Mathematics and the language classes are conducted in both English and Chinese, giving your child lots of opportunities to use both languages. We are one of the few schools in Hong Kong to provide Chinese lessons using Putonghua with simplified characters.
Globally Prepared With a Firm Foundation
We recognise the uniqueness of each child by catering to his/her abilities, interests and aptitudes. We believe in nurturing our students to become responsible, respectful and caring individuals by instilling sound values. Our students participate in a myriad of activities and enrichment programmes as part of their personal development.
In PY 2, students are first introduced to the MindUP programme, a mindfulness-based social and emotional learning programme, to help them learn to self-regulate and focus their concentration for learning success while enhancing perspective taking, empathy and kindness which will continue into the Primary level.
