5 school sites allocated

May 29, 2015

Secretary for Education Eddie Ng has announced that five operators have been selected to develop international schools at two vacant school premises and three greenfield sites.


The two vacant premises in Aberdeen and Tai Po were awarded to the Harbour School Foundation and ESOL Education HK. The schools will open in the 2016-17 school year.


The French International School "Victor Segalen" Association and Shrewsbury International School Hong Kong were both allocated a site in Tseung Kwan O, and Malvern College Hong Kong was given the Science Park site. The schools will open in 2018-19.


The new schools will create 3,490 primary places and 780 secondary places.


The five applicants will allocate 80% or more school places to non-local students.


"The Government supports the development of a vibrant international school sector in Hong Kong, mainly to meet the demand for school places from overseas families living in Hong Kong and families coming to Hong Kong for work or investment," Mr Ng said.
