About us

"Grant Schools" refer to "any secondary school which receives subsidies in accordance with the Code of Aid for Secondary Schools and which was, before 1 April 1973, in receipt of grants in accordance with the Grant Code" (Cap 279C). They were established by missionaries in selfless dedication and churches with their resourceful input and tireless efforts, offering quality education to the commoners in the nineteenth and early twentieth century, and have been receiving grant-in-aid from the government to operate. With the merging of Grant Code and Subsidy Code under one unified "Code of Aid" in 1973, in operation grant schools still have their separate identities and their own council.

"The object of the Hong Kong Grant Schools Council is to provide a body representative of the Grant Schools, to co-operate with Government in the working of the Grant-in-aid system, and capable of noting (should it be so commissioned) with plenipotentiary power on behalf of the Grant Schools." (Constitution of Grant Schools Council, 1940)



  • - Fostering mutual support among the member schools
  • - Promoting better service and quality education in Hong Kong
  • - Making representations and recommendations on educational matters to the relevant authorities


Grant Schools aim to provide an all-round education. Besides a strong academic emphasis, every effort is made to develop a pupil's individual talents. The objectives of Grant schools are

  • - To teach efficiently through the latest pedagogical methods
  • - To instill civic, moral and spiritual values
  • - To encourage participation in extra-curricular activities
  • - To enhance language skills, both written and oral


Grant schools expect their students to be bi-iterate and trilingual, that is, to be able to write in Chinese and English and able to speak in Cantonese, Putonghua and English.

Graduates of Grant schools have a strong sense of belonging to their alma maters. Alumni associations have sprung up in all corners of the world as a tangible way of keeping close contact with their mother schools. Throughout the world, graduates of Grant Schools show that the Hong Kong public identifies with our educational aims.

Established by missionaries and churches in the nineteenth and early twentieth century, Grant Schools have been pioneers in bringing bilingual education, academic excellence, all-round development, service learning and fostering of values to enrich the education landscape of Hong Kong.  Diverse as we are in terms of our student population, history, funding source, curriculum offerings and affiliation, we all share the same commitment to the education of young people in Hong Kong through nurturing talents and character building.
To uphold this commitment, the Grant Schools Council strives to offer collaboration opportunities for all the twenty-two member schools to share best practices and support one another so that we can achieve excellence together in curriculum design, teaching pedagogies, learning and assessment, school culture, student development, and students’ academic and non-academic performance.
To uphold this commitment, we also work closely with the government to provide advice and support for the formulation and implementation of education policies to ensure the provision of quality and sustainable education in Hong Kong.  At the same time, we increasingly recognize the importance of reaching out to the university sector and business sector so that we can better equip students to embrace their future, which is full of challenges but also abounds with opportunities.
Finally, as Christian schools, we humbly understand we do all these not for our own glory but all in the name of the Lord, for it is written in Colossians 3:17 “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”
