Learn English with fun; achieve success with confidence

Having a good command of English is a passport to success.  With this in mind, upgrading students’ English standard has always been top of our agenda.  We aim to equip our students with a reasonable level of English for multiple pathways they can take upon graduation, be it furthering studies at a local university or continuing education abroad.  To accomplish this mission, we exhaust every possible means to advance our students’ English effectively and efficiently.

The special features of our English education are multifarious and can best be showcased in two levels:

1. Junior forms

othing is more important than the consolidation of the junior learners’ English foundation and basics of the language in terms of usage and grammar.  This is indeed the direction of our English education at junior level.  Moreover, it is always our belief that the enhancement of students’ self-confidence comes naturally with abundant practice – a wide and authentic application of the acquired knowledge in everyday life.  On top of a variety of meaningful written and non-written language tasks done in the classroom and at home, fun-filled English learning activities are offered for students to participate during off-lesson hours as well as during the annual highlight – English Week.  These all blend with our motto of English learning at this level: To teach students to love English as a language for authentic communication!

2. Senior forms

Having built up a strong English foundation and boosted their confidence in using the language, senior students are expected to master the language at a more proficient level to satisfy the English language requirements set by external bodies for further studies and work. Students are particularly trained to pass the HKDSE with flying colours through constant examination drilling practice.

What is more, every strenuous effort has been made to cater for diversity in different classes at both junior and senior levels. In order to narrow the learning differences, our teachers employ every feasible way to help students of different levels of English proficiency.  With resources available, classes are divided into smaller classes, narrowing students’ divergence and facilitating teaching.

The following HKDSE elective modules have been chosen based on students’ orientation and needs:

²  Learning English through Short Stories

²  Learning English through Social Issues

²  Learning English through Workplace Communication


All in all, helping students learn the English language effectively and lively is always the fundamental task of the English Faculty. With the full support of all subjects to incorporate English in daily teaching, the vision of enabling the students to have a good command of English to face future challenges in studies and careers should be made much easier. The English Faculty will consistently uphold its principle of providing ample learning opportunities for the students to upgrade their English standards.
