ESF Island School

Island School is one of the oldest ESF schools in Hong Kong. An assessment of the building in 2011 showed that major redevelopment was needed.

Built over eight floors, the new school will include a performing arts centre, an indoor swimming pool, a sports hall, basketball courts, modern laboratories, sky gardens, a central café, innovative learning environments and creative studios. As well as a range of other facilities there will be a designated parking for school buses under the school buildings to facilitate pick-up and drop-off and thus relieve pressure from Borrett Road itself.

While the site on Borrett Road is being redeveloped, the Education Bureau offered Island School two temporary school sites in Sha Tin. We are committed to ensuring a continuity of quality teaching and learning and maintaining Island School’s unique ethos during the decanting period, which started in Jan 2018.


  • Hong Kong Island Mid Levels (including Kennedy Road west of the Hopewell Centre), Old Peak Road, Conduit Road and Robinson Road as far as Castle Road, some of Central District served by Glenealy School and the Peak.
  • Discovery Bay (shared with West Island School).
  • Tsing Yi Island.
  • West Kowloon bordered by Ferry Street and Tong Mi Road to Lai Chi Kok Road.
  • North of Boundary Street and west of Tai Po Road, extending west to Tuen Mun except for the area of Tsuen Wan that is part of Sha Tin College zone (see Sha Tin College).
