To facilitate students with a good English learning environment, extended English learning activities are conducted in Integrated Science (Biology), Life and Society and Music in junior forms. With a team of language teachers all attained the Language Proficiency Requirement and a NET teacher, we organize a variety of activities to enhance students’ learning in languages. Regular activities such as Chinese and English Extensive Reading Schemes, Morning Reading Scheme, English Drama, Chinese and English Verse Speaking and Debate Classes are conducted to raise the competence of students’ learning in languages. We also develop a School-based English Curriculum with tailor-made learning materials and interactive activities is prepared for our students.

Students with better English proficiency can opt for DSE examination papers in English for Physics and Chemistry.

To cater for students' diversity in learning, teachers adopt different teaching strategies to optimize the effectiveness of student learning. Students have the opportunities to participate in a variety of teaching activities and learning experiences. We cooperated with a number of tertiary institutions to enhance students' learning abilities, including "Aviation Studies", "Computer Game and Animation Design" and "Vocational English Course" etc for senior students. We also arrange after-school tutoring classes at all levels, and select outstanding students to join gifted programmes organised by universities.
