The Nord Anglia Education school will open its doors in September 2014, after a comprehensive renovation.

Globally, Nord Anglia Education boasts a low teacher to pupil ratio of 1:9 and 1:11 and small class sizes of 16-22.
To demonstrate their commitment to Hong Kong, Nord Anglia plan on giving back to the community by training local teachers.

Although its too early to announce school fees, Philippe Lagger, Development Director of Nord Anglia Education has confirmed the fees will be competitive compared to Hong Kongs top schools and their aim is not to be the most expensive school in Hong Kong.
