West Island School (WIS) is a secondary school under the English Schools Foundation (ESF).

ESF is the largest provider of English-medium international education in Hong Kong. Our mission is to inspire creativity and nurture the global citizens and leaders of the future. We do this by creating joyful learning environments, led by a community of exceptional teachers who bring out the best in every child through a personalised approach to learning and by inspiring curious minds.

West Island School is a world class co-educational IB World School in a modern building overlooking The University of Hong Kong and West Lamma Channel.  The school offers both an academic (IGCSEs, IB Diploma) and an Applied Learning pathway (BTEC) in the middle and upper years and students access excellent higher education courses worldwide. The school also has a Learning Support Centre for students with moderate special educational needs. For the most able students the school offers enrichment opportunities as well as a specialised critical thinking course in the middle school. In 2012 the school was awarded CIS/WASC status. The visiting team commented “the team congratulates the staff on their enthusiasm and passion for student learning”.
