Application for 2024-2025 Secondary One


The application period for Secondary One 2024-2025 has ended. 


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, 11 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 for each student in the 2024/2025 academic year is HK$ 40,000 (subject to EDB approval).

We look forward to welcoming you to the Diocesan family.
