ESF launches Strategic Plan 2015-2020


The English Schools Foundation (ESF) has launched the new Strategic Plan: A vision for 2015-2020. To achieve ESF’s vision – “for every student to be the best that they can be”, four strategic objectives and twelve strategic goals have been developed under the four key pillars of Education, Organisation, Communications and Financial Sustainability.

“Our vision is for every student to be the best that they can be and our mission is to inspire creativity and nurture the global citizens and leaders of the future. We are well placed to fulfill the mission and achieve our vision through having exceptional teachers who we believe bring out the best in every child,” said Mrs Belinda Greer, Chief Executive Officer of ESF.

Four Key Pillars

In face of global innovation in education and the changing educational landscape in Hong Kong, ESF aims to be a key driver of best practice in teaching and learning by creating joyful learning environments and having exceptional teachers who bring out the best in every child through a personalised approach to learning.

Building on the work of the last strategic plan, the new five-year Strategic Plan 2015-2020 is organised under four key pillars: Education, Organisation, Communications and Financial Sustainability.

Education: To deliver exceptional learning outcomes for all students, support professional thinking, practice and collaboration, and deepen partnerships across ESF schools and with parents and the wider community.

Organisation: To operate as an efficient, effective and unified organisation recognised as leaders in education, expand and strengthen operations in alignment with market development.

Communications: To create and sustain a profile for ESF which positively promotes ESF and leads to ESF being consistently recognised as an education system of choice.

Financial Sustainability: To ensure sufficient support for future capital projects and expansion of the organisation, ensure the operation is self-sustainable and being run efficiently, and establish a culture of gift-giving and fundraising to generate funds for activities within the organisation.
