International Secondary Schools

The international school sector in Hong Kong is fairly diverse. In addition to 14 schools operated by the English Schools Foundation, there are over 30 individual school operators providing various national and international curricula at primary and secondary levels.

List of International Secondary Schools

Apart from those which have been established long time ago, schools join the international school family either through the School Allocation Exercise, or meeting a specific set of requirements and undergoing a vigorous scrutiny process.

The School Allocation Exercise (“SAE”) is an open and competitive bidding process for the allocation of vacant school premises and greenfield sites (including those with no temporary or permanent building in existence before) for educational use, including international school use. Under the SAEs, applicant bodies are required to submit detailed proposals for consideration by the School Allocation Committee, which comprises official and non-official members.

Hong Kong Primary Schools

There are several types of school within Hong Kong.

The government-run schools offer free primary and secondary education. The private schools are divided between international schools, those schools that are operated by Hong Kong’s largest provider of private education, the English Schools Foundation (ESF), and Direct Subsidy Scheme (DSS) schools that receive subsidies from the government.

Each type of schools has its own table in MetaAIRR. You may click the following links for respective categories.
