Pokfulam Hong Kong
Kennedy School

Thank you for considering Kennedy School.


Greetings to you all Kennedy School is part of the English Schools Foundation (ESF), Hong Kong's largest provider of English-medium international education. ESF's integrated network of 22 schools and comprehensive programme of after-school activities help to bring out the best in every student through a personalised approach to learning and by inspiring curious minds. ESF was founded in 1967. However, Kennedy School was originally founded in 1961 before it moved to our beautiful location in Pokfulam "by the sea" in 1989. One of the most important decisions that any family makes is the school they choose for their child's education. At Kennedy School we believe we offer the very best of teaching and learning under the umbrella of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program as well as a rich and extensive range of extra-curricular opportunities. Beyond the classroom we have a multi-faceted PE, swimming and sports program as well as a widely recognised and celebrated Performing Arts program. Our technology provision is an integral part of our teaching program, with dedicated devices in each classroom and a 1:1 ratio in years 4 to 6. If you join Kennedy School your child will also have the opportunity to learn Chinese as part of our daily program. Most importantly, Kennedy is a community school where families and friends are welcomed with open arms. We hope to be a crucial and important part of your families life in Hong Kong. By choosing Kennedy School you are selecting a school that is committed to ensuring your child meets their full potential. Our motto is to "Inspire, Achieve and Excel" and we hope every day at Kennedy School enables your child to do this. I invite you to explore our website and find out more about what we have to offer.
