In late 2021 Kellett was awarded the highest status, Patron's Accredited Member, by COBIS (Council for British International Schools) following an accreditation visit, a first for a school in Hong Kong. Kellett joins only 6 other schools in Asia to have been awarded Patron’s Accredited Membership and is the only school in Hong Kong to do so. In recognition of our approach to well-being, we have also been awarded Beacon School status. Beacon status is awarded only for excellence, and means we are looked at as an example of best-practice for other schools to learn from.  A summary of the report can be found here.
