Senior International Curriculum

Principal’s Message

We are happy to share a piece of good news with you: HLC has been approved by the Education Bureau to offer a two-year international GCE A-level curriculum to  S.5 students with effect from 2022/2023 school year.With high demand of our students pursuing studies overseas, our College started to explore the possibility of offering international curriculum since 2017 to meet the multiple learning needs of students. The purposes of providing international curriculum are as follows:

1. To cater for learners’ diversity,
2. To meet the diverse further study needs of our students, and
3. To help students gain the best advantage of an international qualification.Starting 2021-22, while HKDSE still remains as the mainstream curriculum for the majority of our S.4 students, our College is planning to offer a “S.4 Integrated Curriculum” as an alternative stream for the preparation for S.5 GCE A-Level Curriculum. S.4E Students are advised to sit for the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) Chinese examination by the end of S4.
