King George V School

King George V School (KGV) is an ESF secondary school.

KGV is part of the ESF Kowloon Learning Campus which is a two year pilot project (2015-2017) established to explore ways for the three ESF schools in Kowloon to break down barriers and work more closely together in the interests of student learning.

KGV originated as the Central British School in 1902, moving to its present site in 1936. The present name dates from 1948. Today it serves students from Kowloon and the New Territories. It occupies a large site of over ten acres and has its own astroturf sports field and outdoor swimming pool. There are two new buildings recently completed and in use (Performing Arts and a Science Block) on the school site and an extensive Learning Resource Centre (LRC). 

Nearly all of the students are long term residents of the area and it has deep roots into the local community. The school is well known for its commitment to developing all aspects of student life and it has a fine tradition in sport, music, drama, dance, community service, charity work, environmental sustainability and all aspects of Creativity, Activity and Service. There is a well-established Learning Support Centre (LSC) for 32 students with moderate learning difficulties and the school prides itself on challenging all students to make progress and succeed together. It has a very strong House system which is largely run by students and promotes a wide range of activities.

The School motto is Honestas Ante Honores: Honesty before Glory.
The vision statement makes its priorities clear:

King George V School is ambitious in developing its fine traditions of high achievement and creativity in an engaging, enjoyable and sustainable learning environment. We aim to celebrate diversity in an inclusive and supportive international community.
