Student Support

In order to better cater for the diversity of students, the Chinese and English classes are divided according to student ability, so that students can receive appropriate learning support.

The whole year is divided into two semesters, and the assessment scope includes daily classroom performance, homework and examinations (three-stage examinations for junior forms). The school will also make adaptations to the examinations and provide individual support (e.g. exam revision classes) in response to the needs of special candidates.
Home-School Co-operation and School Ethos
(1) Home-School Co-operation : The Parent-teacher Association, with parents and teachers forming a standing committee, has organised and promoted a wide range of activities. Apart from being a parent manager and participating in school management, parents also serve as volunteers and students’ life coaches to support school activities. The school regularly organises Parents' Day, Parents' Evening, Student Growth Report and Outstanding Student Appreciation Ceremony, and a series of Christian parenting education workshops to strengthen home-school communication and help students grow holistically, allowing the principal and parents to care for the children of Queen Maud Secondary School together by sharing faith and prayer.

We aim to cultivate students' morality and provide students with an all-rounded curriculum based on biblical truth and values with the slogan “Together we build a community of care.
