Dedicated staff/programs for students with special learning needs

Kellett is an inclusive school that aspires to meet the needs of all its students.
Both the Preparatory and Senior Schools have a limited number of places available for students with Special Educational Needs whose individual requirements can be met in a mainstream setting through provision of a differentiated curriculum. The number of places available is determined by the level of student need within the SEN programme at the time.

Learning support offered

Parents of students receiving SEN support are required to work closely with the SEN Team. They will fund all additional resources and support, over and above mainstream provision, that Kellett believes their child requires to access the curriculum. This may include, but not be limited to, additional classroom support, the advice and services of outside agencies. For example, Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Medical and Educational Psychologist Assessment.

The school supports gifted, able and talented students

Inclusion also focuses on those students whose academic ability significantly exceeds that of their peers. These students form part of Kellett's extension programme, which supports students who excel in certain areas.

Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Kellet School's dynamic learning community was founded over thirty years ago as a Not-for-Profit Association to provide a high quality British style education for the English speaking community in Hong Kong.
Subsequently, Kellett has grown to earn an enviable reputation as one of Hong Kong’s leading independent International Schools where students learn with growing independence, in a challenging and stimulating environment. High academic achievement is realised within a broad curriculum embracing 21st Century learning, creativity, the arts and sport, whilst taking into account our unique position in South East Asia at the gateway to China.

Teaching approach of the school

Kellett School offers a British style, academic education designed for the English speaking community in Hong Kong.
The curriculum is based upon, and teaches beyond the National Curriculum for England, providing students with both a local and international perspective. The curriculum offers tight bench-marking, is highly transferable and is recognised throughout the English speaking world, allowing students to easily transfer to and from British, British International and English medium schools worldwide.

Kellett provides challenge, offers opportunity and entrusts responsibility; expecting in return from its community a commitment to achieving personal excellence, building transferable skills and developing a global outlook.
