Jockey Club Ti-I College ('Ti-I' is pronounced 'tee yee') was established by a total funding of HK$ 84 million from Royal Hong Kong Jockey Club. The setting up of a secondary school, which is not only focused on normal academic curriculum, but also aimed to develop students' potential of visual arts and sports, was proposed by Sir Edward Youde, a late governor of Hong Kong.
The idea of founding the school originated from the late governor, Sir Edward Youde. He proposed the setting up of a secondary school in Hong Kong which would not only emphasize academic performance but also provide an opportunity to develop students' potentials in sports and visual arts. In November 1985, the Chief Secretary came to an agreement with the Hong Kong Jockey Club (the then Royal Hong Kong Jockey Club) that such a school would be built in Shatin. A total funding of eighty-four million Hong Kong dollars was established by the RHKJC and the Government.
The Education Department invited professionals and educators to form the School Management Board. The school commenced its operation in September 1989 and is now in full swing.
Jockey Club Ti-I College is one of the very few secondary schools in Hong Kong with a dormitory. The maximum capacity of the dormitory is 96.
The college is also the first of its kind in Hong Kong, in which students are to choose between specializing in visual arts or sports when they get in. The idea is to develop students all-around abilities and interests besides academic excellence.
Students of Jockey Club Ti-I College are required to choose a major either in visual arts or physical education before admission.
Other than specialized school-based curriculum for these two sepcialized areas, students will study other subjects offered by a normal grammar school in Hong Kong. They will eventually sit for the new Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE) when they leave the College in Form 6.
Some students will continue to pursue tertiary education in Physical Education or Visual Arts and work in related fields upon graduation.
