The English Schools Foundation (ESF) is the largest provider of English-medium international education in Hong Kong. Our 22 schools and comprehensive programme of extra-curricular activities bring out the best in every student through a personalised approach to learning and by inspiring curious minds. 

Our strategic intent is to be the key driver of best practice in teaching and learning. Our model of education is on the cutting-edge of global innovation producing excellent outcomes for our students. 

There are more than 17,000 students from about 60 different nationalities in ESF schools, Private Independent Schools and kindergartens. About 70% of our students have parents who are permanent residents of Hong Kong. 

Quarry Bay School

Quarry Bay School is an ESF primary school. The school opened over eighty years ago and was relocated to new, purpose-built premises at Braemar Hill, on the north eastern side of Hong Kong island, in 1985. The school has 720 places.

Quarry Bay School’s aim is to encourage our children to enjoy learning by providing activities which help to develop confident, happy and successful individuals. We feel that all children have talents which can be developed and that all can succeed no matter what their level of ability. Providing equality of opportunity for all our children is a vital aspect of our education policy, and this permeates all aspects of life in the school.
