Greeting from the new Head Master - Paul Ellmes

Dear Parents

It is with great pleasure that I write to you as the newly appointed Headmaster(Designate).

I am looking forward to the start of the new term with the same eagerness as the pupils. I am confident that we, my team and myself, will build on the fine reputation for education and enrichment that you have rightly come to expect from us. 

We are thrilled to tell you news of our readiness for the start of term on 24th August 2021. The Education Bureau (EDB) has acknowledged our staff list and is also satisfied with the progress and preparation the school has made for opening this new term.

Our confidence is bolstered by the school’s Senior Management Team being already on board, and the oversight of our former Founding Headmaster, Mr Gary Wright, as Chairman of Governors for the Mount Kelly Group in Asia. Further support for our school is given through our continuing link and guidance of our parent school in England, and our affiliation to the UK's Independent Schools Association, being the only Hong Kong school with this honour. 

My work in education over 25 years in teaching and leadership across schools in the UK and other countries places me in an excellent position to lead our experienced and dedicated teaching and administrative teams at MKSHK. 

We are ready to teach from 24th August, and trust that you too are eager for the start of the new term.

Before meeting you and your children in person, I am more than happy to receive any questions or comments you'd like to send to me at headmaster@mountkelly.edu.hk . 

I shall send to you a formal welcome letter next week with a sight of our plans for the upcoming school year in MKSHK. 

We are looking forward to seeing you on 24th August.

Yours sincerely


Paul Ellmes 
Headmaster(Designate)
