Message From Executive Director & Governor

Welcome to Mount Kelly School Hong Kong, a brand new school in Hong Kong offering a curriculum wholly modelled on the British Independent School Pre-preparatory and Preparatory structure.  We received from the Education Bureau Provisional Registration Certificate for the International Preschool on 1st September 2017 and subsequently a full licence on 18 July 2018.  For the Preparatory School the Provisional Registration Certificate was obtained on 15th January 2018 and application for a full licence is underway.  Our schools are located in convenient central sites in Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon.

The Austine Place site houses the International Preschool for pupils aged 3-6 years old and a centre for Babies & Toddlers aged 6-months to 36-months.  The Austin Tower site houses the Preparatory School for pupils aged 5-13 (Year 1-8) with access to excellent nearby sport facilities.

Mount Kelly School Hong Kong builds upon the history and tradition of its UK sister school, the 140 years old Mount Kelly School UK in Tavistock, Devon, England.  We closely follow the British National Curriculum with a flavour of South-East Asia built into lessons.  Students after graduation may proceed to continue with their studies in Mount Kelly School UK.  The School prides itself on its excellent teaching staff mostly expatriate from the UK and the pastoral care they give to our students.  Besides catering to individual needs and teaching in small groups making interactive learning possible, the school offers something different in its Shackleton programme for learning life skills through outdoor activities and leadership training.

Mount Kelly School Hong Kong continues to seek expansion of its facilities on the second and third floor of Austin Tower and elsewhere.  The second Preschool campus in Hong Kong, on Hong Kong Island, is expected to open in the 2019-2020 academic year, subject to Education Bureau (EDB) approval.  A permanent site for MKSHK (Prep and College) has been obtained in New Territories ready for development soon.  A sister Mount Kelly School is now being planned to be established in Johor Bahru, Malaysia.

We hope we would be able to cater to the needs of individual students and develop their potential to the full before progression to university.
