House system[edit]

Admitted students of the school will be allocated into the four houses on an equal footing. The house that they belong to remains the same until they graduate or drop out. There are four houses in the school and each of them is led by two teachers, also serving as its advisers.

Class structure and curriculum[edit]

Past curriculum[edit]

Prior to 2008, there were 27 classes in the school:

Year Classes
Secondary 1 5
Secondary 2 5
Secondary 3 5
Secondary 4 5 (including 3 liberal arts and business classes, 2 science classes)
Secondary 5 5 (including 3 liberal arts and business classes, 2 science classes)
Secondary 6 2 (including 1 liberal arts and business class, 1 science class)

Secondary 1 to Secondary 3 students were offered a broad and balanced curriculum, focusing on languages, liberal arts, business and science. The best-performing 40 students would be placed in class A, while other students would be distributed to other four classes.

The classes were divided into two disciplines throughout the senior form. Within all Secondary 4 to Secondary 5 classes, three of them were liberal arts and business classes, the remainder was science classes.

The students need to take part in Hong Kong Certificate of Education Examination (HKCEE) at the end of Secondary 5. If they did not pass the examination, they would have to apply for repeating Secondary 5 in the school or other schools.

Curriculum was broadened in Secondary 6. New courses, including Use of English, Chinese Language and Culture, Advanced Supplementary (AS) and Advanced Level (AL) subjects, were added to Secondary 6 curriculum.

Current curriculum[edit]

Senior form students in the academic year of 2009/2010 was offered a brand-new curriculum after implementation of the education reform. Apart from languages, liberal arts, business and science courses, new courses like Mathematics, Liberal Studies, Geography, Visual Arts and Information and Communication Technology were added to the curriculum.
