Head Master’s Welcome
Head Master’s Welcome
I am very proud to be the Founding Head Master of Mount Kelly School Hong Kong. I am delighted to introduce our new school to you through our website. I hope that you can gain a flavour of what makes our school and the way we educate children so special.
Opening in September 2017, Mount Kelly School’s Hong Kong (MKSHK) Preparatory School will be conveniently located in a wonderful and spacious location by the Victoria Harbour waterfront. MKSHK will be Hong Kong’s first British Preparatory School, wholly modelled on the British Independent School Pre-preparatory and Preparatory structure. Our Preschool (Nursery and Reception classes) also opens in September is located in a superb and convenient location in Tsim Sha Tsui. We also now offer playgroup classes in another new school site in Kowloon.
This ‘Preparatory’ school structure focuses on extending small classes with our pastoral care, leadership and intellectual disciplines beyond the traditional primary education. Our education seeks to instil confidence, opportunity, academic and personal growth throughout Year 7 and 8. Our objective is to extend every pupil to make the most of their abilities in small groups, whatever the activity.
Our new school in Hong Kong will deliver a ‘world class’ choice to informed parents seeking an education focused on pastoral care, academic excellence and our range of extra-curricular activities as part of our extended school day. Mount Kelly School Hong Kong will provide an enormous breadth of opportunity in which children can develop their own individual talents within a very supportive network.
We are proud of our strong links with our sister school, Mount Kelly, a leading independent school in England and we share in their tradition of excellence and the core values that they embody. We are fortunate to have been able to draw on their educational expertise and utilise these in a new exciting school, incorporating the very best of British independent education. The school will be the Mount Kelly Foundation’s first international campus and will be only the second HMC school to open in Hong Kong.
