Kellett学校 was founded in 1976, 的 中国人 Year of 的 Fire Dragon. The parent founders sought a high-quality, British-style education, rich in 的 Arts and in 体育运动. 我们现在是老牌企业, long-time stake-holder in 香港, with a well-deserved reputation for excellence.
Kellett’s first Principal was Vivienne Steer, and 的 school’s first two classes had 44, 主要是外籍, 孩子们. 从这些最早的英国人, 美国, 澳大利亚, 中国人, 日本, 朝鲜文, 印度, 巴基斯坦, 伊朗, Norwegian and Swedish families came 的 sense of community and fellowship that continues to thrive today.
By 1977, 的 school had tripled to 122 students and had relocated to leased premises in Tai Koo Shing. 到那时, Kellett学校 Association Limited had been established and officially registered with 的 香港 Education Department as an International Kindergarten and Primary School.
In 1980, 的 school moved to a purpose built facility in 香港’s Sou的rn District of Wah Fu overlooking Kellett Bay. This facility is still t在这里 today and remains 的 home of 的 first of 的 two preparatory schools, 被称为bat365在线平台用户官网, 博克富林.
Vivienne led Kellett until her retirement in 1996 when Ann Mc Donald took over as Principal. Since 的 early days, Kellett has grown alongside 香港. 2007年8月, 的 school completed 的 sixth phase of its development, thus achieving 的 vision of its founders. A major extension and its associated renovations at 的 preparatory campus now provides an enviable range of facilities rarely found in a prep school of its size.
The Kellett Board 的n modified Kellett’s name to represent 的 school’s educational position within 香港 and 的 region. The school became Kellett学校 - The British International School in 香港. This name reflects Kellett’s proud tradition of offering quality British style education to 的 English-speaking community of 香港, 三十多年来, and clearly maps 的 future direction of 的 school.
In 2005, 的 growing shortage of local senior school places prompted 的 Board to extend 的 博克富林 school to age thirteen, offering pupils full UK 预备 provision. Alongside this extension, 的 Board redoubled its efforts to secure a permanent 高级 School site. In 2009, 的 school was awarded a temporary 高级 site, to be shared with Elsa High School (Carmel School Association) in Shau Kei Wan, less than a kilometre from 的 预备 School's early site in Taikoo Shing.
Established in 2007, Kellett 高级 School grew year by year at 的 site in Shau Kei Wan. The success of 的 school meant that once again 的 Board needed to consider how this additional provision could continue. By now 的 Kellett学校 Association had committed to extend to full 高级 school provision (up to Year 13, 18 years of age) in order to offer A-level qualifications.
2009年8月, 的 Association was awarded by 的 香港 Government a greenfield site in Kowloon Bay, to develop a new 预备 School (in addition to 的 薄扶林校园) and a purpose built four form 高级 School.
现在, Kellett学校 Kowloon Bay's 高级 School has seen its first cohort of Year 13s go off to top universities worldwide, and will look to continue and build upon this success in years to come. 你可以 find out more about our campuses 在这里.
Kellett学校 is a stakeholder in 香港 and is very much a part of its neighbourhood and 的 wider community with whom it maintains excellent links. 在它的历史, it has experienced 的 highs and lows of 香港’s development and yet it has been supported by a strong following of committed families, 工作人员, 公司和其他.
The school also enjoys active partnerships with o的r local and international schools, 社区团体, charities and government bodies and 的se add fur的r strength to 的 school.
In 2019 Ann Mc Donald OBE retired as Principal after 23 years at 的 helm. In recognition of her contribution to Kellett a fund for bursaries and scholarships was established, 的 安麦唐纳德基金. With a maturing 高级 School and steadfast commitment to offer opportunity, Kellett aims to build an endowment fund to enable us to give more bursaries to more 孩子们 for many years to come.
Ann Mc Donald was awarded an OBE in 的 Queen’s Birthday Honours list in 2019 in recognition of her contribution to 的 education sector in 香港. During her time at 的 school, Kellett grew from a small prep school to an all-through school with more than 1,两个校区有300名学生.
