Fee Levels for Academic Year 2024/25


Dear Parents

The ESF Board met this evening to approve the budget for the coming academic year.

ESF has a dedicated team of nearly 3000 colleagues who work tirelessly every day, both inside and outside the classroom. Our main goal is to fulfil the promise we made to you when you chose to entrust us with your child’s education: to help them, and every single student, to be the best that they can be.

When setting the budget for the upcoming year, the Board, as it always does, aims to find a balance; one that enables us to recruit and retain exceptional teachers and support staff whilst also setting fees at a reasonable level that provides quality and value for the investment you make in your child’s education.

The Board has consistently followed this approach for many years, and as a result, we have become one of the highest-performing education systems worldwide, with a fee level that remains among the lowest compared to other international schools in Hong Kong.

As we plan for the upcoming year, the Board has given approval for an average fee increase of 4.8%. The breakdown of this increase is provided in the table below. Following on from the changes made this year, the overall fees you will pay will include the compulsory charges for items such as software licenses and activity fees.

The fees are subject to approval by EDB.

I want to assure you that we fully recognise and appreciate our responsibility in managing our finances prudently. We value the trust you place in us and the investment you make. Our commitment to providing excellence through a ‘best value model’ calls for careful and responsible cost-control measures. By doing so, we can allocate funds to enhance learning, support students, professionally develop staff and improve school facilities, ultimately ensuring a quality educational experience for your children.

As we look to the future, it is important to acknowledge that it holds many unknowns and uncertainties. The rapid advancements in technology, particularly in the field of AI, the challenges posed by climate change, and the ever-changing nature of our world require us to be adaptable. Our goal is to prepare your children for a fast-paced and constantly evolving world.

As we envision the future and acknowledge the pace of change, we do so with confidence. We have outstanding teachers and support staff, exceptional students, and parents like you who are deeply invested in your child’s future.

I would like to thank you for your ongoing support of ESF and your school. The strong partnership we share with you forms the solid foundation of our ESF Family.
