S1 to S3 Admission Information
A core belief of our school is that each student is unique and that it is our task to foster each student's potential to the full. The school's admission principle and the curriculum we offer reflect this belief.
From Secondary 1 to Secondary 3, our broad and balanced curriculum is ready to welcome all students who have the motivation and readiness to participate actively in learning. Specifically, since English is the medium of learning for all subjects other than Chinese, the student's ability to communicate and learn through English is a key factor to be considered for all applications.
