About ESF

The English Schools Foundation (ESF) is the largest provider of English-medium international education in Hong Kong. We have five secondary schools, nine primary schools and a school for students with special educational needs across Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and the New Territories. Two “all through” Private Independent Schools and four kindergartens are operated by ESF’s affiliated company, ESF Educational Services Limited (ESL), which also offers English language classes and sports activities. The fifth kindergarten is due to open in August 2016.

The curriculum, leading to the International Baccalaureate (IB), is adapted to Hong Kong and the Asia Pacific region. We recruit best teachers who are experienced in international school education and are caring and committed to providing high quality education. Our school facilities provide a joyful environment for effective learning.

There are 17,000 students from more than 50 different nationalities in ESF schools, PIS and kindergartens. About 70% of our students have parents who are permanent residents of Hong Kong.

ESF is proud of the high academic and wider achievements of our students. In 2014, 13 ESF students achieved the perfect score of 45 points in the IB Diploma examinations; more than 95% go on to leading universities worldwide.
