The Academic Steering Committee is responsible for curriculum development, co-ordinating cross-curricular projects and catering for learner diversity. All teachers are subject-trained and have received recognized professional teacher training. Project learning is emphasized in Junior Secondary so that students develop self-directed learning capabilities and apply knowledge to real-life situations. In Senior Secondary, a student can study both science and non-science subjects so as to experience a broad education. Library Learning for S.1 students is to enhance students' ability to make use of library resources to improve thinking skills and reading skills, so as to learn how to learn. The Liberal Studies curriculum is designed according to school-based teaching and learning objectives to complement textbooks used.

Student Support
(1) Whole School Approach to Catering for Learner Diversity : Small Class Teaching is implemented in S.2 and S.4 to S.6. Catering for learner diversity is achieved through school-based professional support, tailored school-based curriculum, enhancement classes in Mathematics, Chinese Language and English Language. Students' diverse needs are catered by our teachers, Educational Psychologist, Clinical Psychologist and School Social Workers. The whole environment is geared towards a culture of mutual respect, empathy, acceptance and collaboration.
(2) Whole School Approach to Integrated Education : Our school provides love and care for each individual student (Cura Personalis). Although the number of students with special educational needs (SEN) is very small, the SEN Coordination Committee is set up to offer a holistic approach to catering for the needs of the students and supporting home-school cooperation. Members of the committee include the Vice Principal, Head of Guidance Committee, SEN Coordinator, Language and Liberal Studies teachers, School Social Workers, Clinical and Educational Psychologists. By the use of the Learning Support Grant, the school buys external services for speech therapy and educational counselling services. Lesson materials are adjusted so that each individual student is encouraged to do their best according to their abilities. The school provides special examination arrangements for candidates with special educational needs, e.g. extra time allowance, special arrangements in the examination venue, etc. In addition, to foster home-school cooperation, the school arranges seminars for parents and actively collects opinions from them.
(3) Education Support for Non-Chinese Speaking(NCS) Students : Our school provides additional support for NCS students to facilitate their learning of Chinese: appointing additional teacher(s)/teaching assistant(s) to support NCS students’ learning of Chinese; developing school-based Chinese Language curriculum and/or adapting learning and teaching materials; and organising cultural integration activities. Non-Chinese Speaking students learn Chinese in small class.
(4) Measures to provide adaptation for Learning and Assessment : Besides examinations, there are continuous assessment and uniform tests. Assessment as/for learning, together with discussions and feedback after tests and examinations help students to understand their progress and weaknesses for better learning. Assessment plans of all levels have been uploaded to the school website.
Home-school Co-operation and School Ethos

(2) School Ethos : Our mission is to nurture 'Men of Human Excellence', with Competence, Commitment, Compassion and Conscience. Love and care, respect and justice, responsibility, strive for excellence and faith are our core values. All students are expected to exercise self-discipline and responsibility towards others. Students are given a certain amount of autonomy to make decisions on their own so that they may grow into responsible persons with good real-life problem-solving skills. By upholding our spirit of 'unity in plurality' and 'men for and with others', we help our students learn to be empathic with others' needs, ideas and feelings. An Educational Psychologist and a Clinical Psychologist are stationed in the school to help students overcome problems they may come across.
