Mount Kelly School Hong Kong’s goal is to nurture confident, well-rounded and forward-thinking individuals with ambitions to fulfill their potential and talents at leading senior schools in Hong Kong and abroad. A MKSHK education develops communication and leadership skills, paving the way for articulate and bright young adults to flourish at university, in the workplace and in society at large.

Academic success is important; we place a strong focus on delivering a high-quality curriculum that prepares pupils for the 13+ Common Entrance examinations. We also recognise that learning is not limited to the classroom. Developing happy, confident and successful children requires a broader curriculum that provides opportunities beyond the classroom. At MKSHK we deliver this through an extensive sporting, musical, artistic and dramatic co-curriculum, which ensures children try new activities, develop leadership potential, and learn how to work effectively with one another.

We place a strong emphasis on pastoral care, enabling individuals to be themselves, feel safe in our school environment and therefore, excel. Stimulated by the Mount Kelly experience and ethos, our pupils are used to reaching the raised bar and even going over it. There is not only an emphasis on individual achievement as Mount Kelly prides itself on teamwork and a strong sense of service to the community. It is vital for our pupils to have a firm commitment to deep-rooted values and to be flexible, pragmatic and open to new ideas. We are a diverse school where the importance of tolerance, understanding and kindness are taught with skill and dedication. Mount Kelly has long upheld its principles for respecting members of all cultural backgrounds, and promoting responsible citizenship.
