The curriculum design is based on a six-year programme, strengthening the transition from the junior to the senior secondary curriculum.

With the introduction of an e-book system, students can read anytime and anywhere. Interactive self-learning software are used to arouse learning interest. To integrate what they have learnt (e.g. knowledge, skills, values, etc.), students need to finish projects seriously and pragmatically. The school promotes value education (including moral and civic education and Basic Law Education) through providing holistic and balanced learning experiences, including classroom learning, school assemblies and various activities (e.g. visits, exchange tours, social services).

Different teaching strategies, tailor-made materials and collaborative learning are adopted to enhance learning effectiveness. Guidance Committee and School Social Worker cater for the diverse learning needs of the students.
(2) Whole School Approach to Integrated Education : The main targets of the Student Support Team are students with special learning needs and their parents. Through a three-tiered support model, the team can take care of the individual differences of students and help them solve their difficulties. Hence, they can have a more prosperous and positive school life and an inclusive school culture can be promoted. The Student Support Team is led by the Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO) to coordinate, plan, implement and review the work related to the support of the students with special educational needs (SEN).It consists of the head of different groups. Support measures include counselling, group training, adjustment of assessment and individual study plans. The social workers, school-based speech therapist and the psychologist meet with students in a timely manner to help them solve their problems. Speech therapy sessions are conducted on both individual and group basis, supporting and improving the speech capability of students. Through various group training including social training, study groups, etc., students’ social skills can be enhanced and their academic performance and learning attitude can be improved. With adjustment of assessment, the team provides and adjusts the assessment content for students in need.

Students are also trained to get familiar with the public examination requirements.
Home-School Co-operation and School Ethos
(1) Home-School Co-operation : Parents and teachers both play a pivotal role in educating children. To make a concerted effort to raise our children, close home-school cooperation is of great value. The Parent-teacher Association aims to promote connections and communications between parents and the school and to establish a partnership between them. Parent education is equally important in developing the potential of parents and strengthening their relationship with their children. The Parent-teacher Association has a mission to encourage parents' participation in school activities through planning and conducting a variety of developmental and recreational activities.
(2) School Ethos : The School nurtures a culture of loving-kindness and simplicity and deems the rapport between students and teachers as indispensable to effective education. Our B.E.S.T. TEEN is the blueprint for nurturing students' sense of Belonging, Empathy, Self-management and Target Setting. The junior students have to stay at school for lunch so that the School can offer optimum care by arranging extra-curricular activities for them. There are various schemes and programmes to guide students through their growth towards their life goals and to develop their potential.
Future Development
(1) School Development Plan : A 3-year development plan is drawn in a bid to keep abreast of the times and to achieve life-long learning. The focuses include:

This strives to cultivate students, teachers and parents’ physical and mental health in the next three years.
(2) Teacher Professional Training and Development : The school implements a comprehensive Teacher Development Program. The theme of the Teacher Professional Development Day is closely related to the school's major concerns. The themes in recent years include Positive Education (by Professor Chiu Chi-yue), compassionate education (by JUST FEEL) and mindfulness (by Professor Lam Siu Fong). In addition, our teachers have received a series of trainings in positive education to establish a positive school. Moreover, teachers have received training on “Responsive Classroom Management” and “Seven Habits of Highly Effective People.” This aims to help students develop from dependence to independence and interdependence, achieve effective management and establish a positive community.
Teachers also arrange Collaborative Lesson Planning, lesson observations and learning communities to facilitate professional exchange and enhance professional capacity.
Since 2018, the school invited Professor Chiu Chi-shing to be the teaching consultant to offer valuable advice on methods to cater for learners' diversity and develop instructional leaders.
Life-wide Learning (including Five Essential Learning Experiences to be provided through Key Learning Areas, extra-curricular activities, co-curricular activities, etc.) : We are dedicated to offering a wide range of extra-curricular activities. There are 61 clubs established, including Wind Band, Mountaineering Club, Campus TV, Red Cross, Rope Skipping Club, Board Game Course, Drama Society as well as various musical instruments (western and Chinese) classes with the purpose to nurture students' interest, skills and positive attitude.

We firmly believe that all of our students have the potential to be leaders in various aspects. Thus, we encourage our young learners to broaden their horizons by participating in a wide range of school activities and taking up different posts of an array of student organizations. Through a series of leadership training, students learn to lead themselves and lead others.

The school conducts “Selection Month for Student Committee Duties” before the end of every school year. Teachers and current students leaders are responsible for interviewing and briefing the potential committee members for the next cohort. This systematic selection of future student leaders encourages a combination of both junior and senior forms students to be engaged in different students unit, passing on the core spirit of the committees respectively. The executive committee of the Student Union is elected by all of the students, by which all students can be engaged in the process, nurturing the civic sense of the students.

At each beginning of a school year, Inauguration Ceremony for Student Leaders are held. During this event, the school states the expectation to every student leaders, while the student leaders will demonstrate their leadership by giving speeches on stage to all students. Organised leadership training are given to aspiring student leaders, including training camp for potential leaders and workshop for committee members, which cultivates the leadership and team co-operation capabilities.
