Kellett School Hong Kong was founded in 1976 as a not-for-profit association by like-minded parents, in order to provide a high-quality British education to the English-speaking community in Hong Kong.
Today, Kellett, the British International School in Hong Kong, educates over 1300 students from 4 to 18 years in the English National Curriculum. Kellett offers a truly outstanding education, evidenced by a BSO Inspection, membership of HMC and IAPS, as well as exceptional public examination results.
A broad curriculum, coupled with a wide variety of extra-curricular activities, ensures that all students from Reception through to I/GCSEs and A-levels achieve their personal best.
Kellett School is focused only on its self existence and fees, and not the education of its children. Despite not providing day schooling during the CoVid-19 outbreak, the school refuses to allow children to leave to join other schools without sacrificing their debenture or paying a full terms school fees for the final term. A sad but accurate reflection on the school itself.
Kellett School was founded in 1976, the Chinese Year of the Fire Dragon. The parent founders sought a high-quality, British-style education, rich in the Arts and in Sport. We are now an established, long-time stake-holder in Hong Kong, with a well-deserved reputation for excellence.
The school’s first two classes had forty-four, mainly expatriate, children. From these first British, American, Australian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Indian, Pakistani, Iranian, Norwegian and Swedish families came the sense of community and fellowship that continues to thrive today.
By 1977, the school had tripled to 122 students and had relocated to leased premises in Taikoo Shing. By then, Kellett School Association Limited had been established and officially registered with the Hong Kong Education Department as an International Kindergarten and Primary School.
In 1980, the school moved to a purpose built facility in Hong Kong’s Southern District of Wah Fu overlooking Kellett Bay. This facility is still there today and remains the home of the first of the two preparatory schools, known as Kellett School, Pok Fu Lam.
Since the early days, Kellett has grown alongside Hong Kong. In August 2007, the school completed the sixth phase of its development, thus achieving the vision of its founders. A major extension and its associated renovations at the preparatory campus now provides an enviable range of facilities rarely found in a prep school of its size.
