Class Structure and Language Policy

Class structure and language policy

HLC adopts English as the medium of instructions for all subjects except Chinese Language, Liberal Studies, Chinese History and Chinese Literature. To enable our students to become biliterate and trilingual, we especially adopt Putonghua as the medium of instructions in S.1-S.2 Chinese Language.


HLC adopts the academic structure with three years of junior and three years of senior secondary education. There are five streams from Secondary 1 to Secondary 6, with no more than 30 students per class.


We carefully streamed students into classes to cater for learners’ diversity. Students are further streamed into different sets for junior Chinese Language, English Language and Mathematics, with no more than 25 students in each set.
