    I am not sure how good it exactly is, but it's ESF, so it should be more than reasonable and provide very good quality education. We're very happy with ESF, but at a different school and not all are the same.

    Having said that. It's extremely difficult to get into. ESF schools have major waiting lists, especially CWB, Bradbury, but in general ... all of them. If your child is 6, he/she should mostly likely be in Y2 now (2006 born), Y3 next school year. Especially lower school places are very hard to get and even intra-ESF transfers from other schools to CWB take time, several months, let alone not having any priority on the wait list. It may take years.

    Sai Kung / CWB is a popular area to live, especially with HKA and Kellett moving there. It used to be less expensive in terms of rent (price per sqft) than the island, but this may change to some extent with the higher demand in the area, not sure. It's still more "affordable" than the island.

    Other schools that you could look into if living in this area are the schools in Kowloon or JIS, NIS, HLYIS ...

    Are you currently in Hong Kong?
