Local Students
Students holding a dependent visa are classified as 'Local Students'


Non-local Students
'Non-local Students’ are defined as those who require a student visa to study in Hong Kong. According to EDB policy, non-local students are not eligible for the government subsidy. Non-local students are required to pay a differential fee, which is composed of the regular school fee and an additional fee equal to the amount of government subsidy. (NB. The approximate amount of the differential fee shown in the table above is for the current year. The differential fees for all forms will be adjusted upwards once the EDB announces the exact amount of the subsidy.)


(iii) The school fee for Form 1 students will remain unchanged for 2 years (i.e. Forms 1 and 2). The school fee will be adjusted upwards approximately 6% - 9% in Form 3 and then again in Form 5.


(iv) Other fees


An Advance Payment of HKD$6,000 is collected every year to cover miscellaneous fees, including the Student Handbook, Life-wide Learning Camp Fee, Enrichment Week and the cost of student activities incurred during the school year. When a student graduates or withdraws from the school, the remaining amount with be refunded to parents.


The Advance Payment is collected when students register for the next school year. This payment is usually collected in June.


Please note that the part of the Advance Payment is used to cover the cost of activities during Enrichment Week in June. There are lower cost options available during this week, but it is unlikely, however, to be sufficient to cover the cost of overseas trips or activities. Students usually need to pay between HKD$500 and HKD$6,000 for trips and activities, depending on the destination.


(v) Payment Methods

School fees must be paid via Direct Debit between the fifth and the tenth day of each calendar month from the parents’ designated local bank account. A message containing the date of bank transfer will be sent to parents’ registered E-mail address at the beginning of each month.
