Kellett School 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 is a full through-train school, educating over 1300 students from 4 to 18 years. Following the English National Curriculum, Kellett offers a truly ‘outstanding’ education, as confirmed during a recent whole school BSO (British Schools Overseas) Inspection as well as exceptional public examination results. A broad curriculum, coupled with a wide variety of extra-curricular activities, ensures that all Kellett students from Reception through to I/GCSEs and A-levels achieve their own personal bests.
Our Careers and University Guidance Team provides all of the information, support and guidance that our students need to make the right decision about what they want to do after Sixth Form.
The vast majority of our Year13 students go straight on to university education, attending institutes from around the world, whilst others choose to take a gap year or go straight into their chosen career path. To see our full list of universities attended, click here.
