Admissions

Discovery College provides an all-through education for primary and secondary students on one campus. Students start Year 1 during the calendar year in which they turn 5 and graduate from the College at the end of Year 13.

The mission of the College is to provide a quality education for all students with English as the medium for teaching and learning, and to offer Chinese (Putonghua using simplified characters) as a specialist subject for all students. There is provision for Chinese for native speakers (CNL) and for Chinese as a foreign language (CFL), including ab initio courses. All successful applicants will need to demonstrate an aptitude for language learning.

In line with the Hong Kong Government’s requirements for all Private Independent Schools (PIS):

  • Discovery College has no catchment area: any student residing in Hong Kong can apply to attend.
  • When the College is at full capacity, at least 70% of the total students enrolled must have at least one parent who has Hong Kong permanent resident status.

Discovery College’s admissions policy is subject to regular review.  It is the responsibility of individual applicants to check the College website for any updates to the policy.  Enquiries may be sent to either Mr. Bob Priest (for Secondary and combined Secondary / Primary applications) at bob.priest@dc.edu.hk or Ms Annie WONG (for Primary applications) at annie.wong@dc.edu.hk.
