Schools - Secondary

Securing a place for your teenager at a secondary school is relatively easy as most children relocating to Hong Kong are of pre-school and primary school ages. Both the international schools and English Schools Foundation offer secondary level education. Acceptance rates to universities and colleges around the world are high.


International Schools

International schools in Hong Kong are academically highly regarded, and further offer great facilities and extra-curricular opportunities for your child. School fees are expensive, and often international schools require that you purchase a debenture upon the child's acceptance to the school. The debenture secures the child's place and funds the schools maintenance and running expenses. The debenture, but not the interest on the investment, is reimbursed after the child leaves the school. The German Swiss International School is pictured left.
