Kellett School, The British International School in Hong Kong, was founded in 1976 as a not-for-profit Association by like-minded parents providing a high quality, British-style education to English speakers in Hong Kong. The School's aim is to engender 'a love of learning and confidence for life' in each of its students. This aim is accomplished by ensuring the students achieve personal academic excellence, are confident, articulate and gain a wide range of transferable skills. Kellett School has recently been recognised as an Outstanding School after an inspection by the British Government Department for Education (DfE) operated inspection scheme for British Schools Overseas (BSO).
Kellett is a through train school with two campuses, the Pok Fu Lam campus and the Kowloon Bay campus. The Pok Fu Lam campus is a Preparatory school (age 4-11) and is located in Hong Kong's Southern district of Wah Fu at the foot of Mount Kellett and overlooking Kellett Bay. The Kowloon Bay campus offers Preparatory and Senior places. Kellett School follows the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and English National Curriculum, which begins in Reception and runs through to the end of Year 13 and includes GCSE, IGCSE and A levels.
Kellett has grown to earn an enviable reputation as one of Hong Kong's leading independent International Schools where students learn with growing independence, in a challenging and stimulating environment. High academic achievement is realised within a broad curriculum embracing creativity, the arts and sports.
Kellett School looks to develop students both inside and outside the classroom. The school offers a rich and varied programme of extra-curricular activities that contribute to the development of the student as a whole. These include local and overseas educational visits, a rich repertoire of performing arts opportunities, sports and activities of general interest.
