At ESF Island School we do something different. Our focus is on igniting a passion for learning in every student. Teaching students facts and figures is no longer enough for them to succeed once they enter higher education and the workforce. We encourage students to problem solve, question and think creatively with new concepts and ideas. Students are encouraged to become resourceful, adaptable and confident learners.

Island School students come from all over the world, and central to our international heritage is the celebration and understanding of each others' cultures.

Students learn to care for each other, for the environment and for other people through our rich co-curricular programme and the family atmosphere of the House system.

Our academic record is excellent with students going on to many of the foremost universities and colleges in the world. In the senior years students can choose to study IB Diploma, IB Career-related and Business and Technology Education Council (BTEC) programmes. Island School prepares students for these qualifications with a broad-based middle school curriculum including International General Certificate of Secondary Education examinations (IGCSEs) and a wide range of exciting options in our unique futures curriculum. Our aim is to help students develop a passion for learning in arrange of areas, whether it be law or robotics and coding or music production.

Currently, Island School is going through a period of transition. The building at Borrett Road which has been Island School's home for 50 years is now being redeveloped. During this time the Island School community is using two temporary campuses in Sha Tin. The new campus will be opened in August 2022.
