ESF Sha Tin College opened in September 1982 to meet the increasing demand for places from families in northern Kowloon and the New Territories. The school provides 1,250 places and has over 30 nationalities represented within the student body. Sha Tin College is committed to providing the best possible teaching and learning experiences for every individual through the medium of English. The education provided leads to a variety of internationally recognised examinations, granting students access to higher education and career opportunities worldwide.
Unique to Sha Tin College is a culture where we take responsibility for fulfilling our own potential and that of others for the good of humanity. Ample opportunities exist to challenge students to become mature, open-minded, caring, responsible and committed individuals with a passion for learning, creativity, sports and a sense of compassion.
With commanding views over the Sha Tin countryside, the College boasts a swimming pool and multipurpose sports hall, music rooms, drama studios, design and technology workshops, science labs and a food technology centre, senior school centre, climbing walls, and a counselling and wellbeing centre.
As part of quality assurance, Sha Tin College embraces review and accreditation processes with the International Baccalaureate (IB) five-year review; English Schools Foundation (ESF) internal review and ESF stakeholder surveys. These processes assist the school in its strategic developmental planning.
