Principal’s Welcome

Mark Beach

Discovery College is an international community of learners who respect the diversity of experiences and perspectives we each possess. Here, we strive to create an environment that fosters a passion for learning, which enables all students to Grow. Discover. Dream. We have exceptional teachers and staff who provide wonderful classroom programmes, which are engaging and fun for students.

Discovery College’s diverse student body underscores the importance of international mindedness and the shared spirit of respect that is a tenant of the College’s Guiding Statements. We welcome students from across the Hong Kong community and are proud to help each and every student achieve his or her very best.

In addition to the robust and comprehensive IB curriculum, which includes specialist courses in the performing arts and PE from Year 1, sports and outdoor activities play a major part in the lives of the students at Discovery College. Sports are provided not only through a comprehensive and highly competitive College programme, but also through very strong local sports clubs in Discovery Bay. Likewise co-curricular activities provide students with opportunities to explore new interests across a wide range of areas.

The College’s location also provides a strong sense of community for students and staff alike. With no private cars, Discovery Bay is an ideal choice for many families. It is a self-contained residential area with its own bus service, including routes to the Sunny Bay MTR station, Tung Chung MTR station and Hong Kong Airport, as well as a 24-hour ferry service to Central. Its relaxed atmosphere lends itself to a more leisurely pace of Hong Kong living. It is one of the few places in Hong Kong where children can walk, cycle or skate to school.

The many ways in which Discovery College supports learning and prepares students for later life are too numerous to list, but I believe you will get a sense of our school community through this website and by reading our biannual Shi Jie Magazine.

I encourage you to find out more about Discovery College, our staff, curriculum and the opportunities provided to our students.
