Take a virtual tour of this renowned British secondary school.
When it comes to selecting a senior school it’s likely your teenager will be as opinionated as you (perhaps more so!) about where they want to go. That’s why it pays to do your research and find out as much as you can about what’s on offer. Usually, the best way for you to get a sense of the ethos of a school is by going to take a look at it but, given current circumstances, Kellett School, The British International School in Hong Kong, is doing the next best thing by taking things online. You’ll be able to view its facilities and hear from both staff and pupils at its Virtual Senior School Open Evening on Tuesday, 10 November.
Once you register, you’ll be given a link to access a special website ahead of the event, which will tell you even more about the Senior School, with videos from Heads of Departments. You will also be able to sign up for online sessions led by members of the Senior Team, which is the perfect opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
The not-for-profit school, which was established in 1976, is no stranger to accolades and was recently named “British International School of the Year” at the Independent School Awards 2020. It follows the English National Curriculum (so its pupils sit GCSEs and A-levels) and has established a reputation for providing outstanding education. Its dedicated staff encourage all pupils to reach their full potential by giving them the support to develop their own passions and promote a “love of learning and a confidence for life.” And with impressive facilities including a fully operational theatre, a running track on its Sky Pitch, a dance hall, swimming pool and CrossFit gym, there’s plenty to appeal to all tastes.
The Senior School is located in the school’s Kowloon Bay Campus, which opened in 2013. We should also mention there’s a staff to pupil ratio of 12:1 and class sizes of no more than 24 pupils, so there’s no need to worry that your teen won’t receive the attention they deserve! We also admire the school’s “Positively Kellett” outlook, which recognises that our children sometimes need additional support dealing with the stresses and strains of modern life and strives to promote positive mental health among its pupils.
