Heep Yunn School (Chinese 協恩中學) is an Anglican girls' secondary school founded in 1936. Commonly known simply as HYS. It is located in Ma Tau Wai, Kowloon, Hong Kong. The School commenced its operation in the DSS (Direct Subsidy Scheme) mode starting from junior form in September 2012. It is governed by the Council of the Heep Yunn School, also the sponsoring body of the primary and kindergarten sections. It uses English as the medium of instruction. It is also one of the elite schools in Hong Kong. The school reports high academic achievement.
Heep Yunn School used to be a Sheng Kung Hui grant-in-aid school for girls before it turned to the DSS mode in September 2012. It was established when two schools founded by the Church Missionary Society - the Fairlea School (1886) and Victoria Home and Orphanage (1887) were merged in 1936 at the present site in Farm Road. This accounts for the name "Heep Yunn" - meaning the union of the two schools through the grace of God. Two buildings of the campus of Heep Yunn School are listed as Grade III historic buildings by Hong Kong's Antiquities and Monuments Office: The Main Building and St. Clare Chapel.
It is the mission of the school to provide our students with a Christian education that develops the whole person in the following areas: moral, intellectual, physical, social, aesthetic and spiritual; to instill in our girls a spirit of public service, and to build a firm foundation in both Chinese and English. 
The five houses are named after the school name.
The school offers 17 school sports teams, four choirs, three orchestras, debating teams in both Chinese, Mandarin and English, an active drama group and team and over 60 other co-curricular programmes relating to languages, humanity studies, visual art, science, community services and leadership training. They enhance students' interpersonal skills, problem-solving skills, responsibility and innovation.
There are eighteen sports teams in HYS.
