Principal’s Welcome

Chris Briggs, Principal, ESF Glenealy School in Hong Kong.

Welcome to Glenealy School.

Glenealy 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.

Glenealy is a community-based school and we pride ourselves on the positive relationships that we build with students, their families and the wider community. Being a 2-form entry primary school of 360 students, we are able to offer a personal and flexible approach to meeting the needs of our learners. We have been described as a ‘small school with a big heart’.

We are committed to providing a vibrant and enriching educational environment for students to flourish. Our school creates safe, challenging and exciting learning within modern flexible spaces and also maximizes a range of opportunities outside of the classroom. Our highly skilled teachers ensure an education that is transformational, developing caring and curious global citizens who make a positive difference to the world.

We help our students become confident, independent and resilient learners who are empowered to achieve their best in all aspects of life. We strongly believe that all children can be successful.

As an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School we offer a significant, engaging and high quality international education for our students. Using the IB Primary Years Program (PYP) as a framework, students learn through an inquiry approach where they are encouraged to explore concepts and ideas that are meaningful and relevant to their lives. We embrace the diversity of cultures within our internationally minded community, and our students aim to make a positive difference.

When you join Glenealy, you don’t just join a school, you join a community of like-minded people who all want to ensure that every child can be the best that they can be.  We look forward to supporting your child to flourish and providing them with an exceptional learning experience. 

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.
