Application for 2023-2024 Secondary One


Application Period: 19th September - 3rd October 2022


Since our establishment in 1860, it has been our mission to offer an excellent all-around secondary education for girls, based on a blend of Christian values and Chinese traditions and culture. English is used as the medium of instruction in all subjects apart from Chinese Language and Chinese-related subjects. Our school offers 23 sports teams, 10 musical groups/orchestras and numerous other ECA activities.

Once admitted, your daughters will embark on a journey of discovery about the world and their place in it. At Secondary Five, students can follow either the HKDSE curriculum or the GCE Advanced Level curriculum, depending on their strengths and needs. Irrespective of their pathway, most graduates go on to prestigious tertiary institutions locally and overseas to further their education. The annual school fee per student is HK$38,000.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Diocesan family.
