IGCSE Programme

Students prepare for their IGCSE examinations in Years 9 to 11. IGCSE is the world’s most popular international qualification and widely recognised by leading universities worldwide. The Mount Kelly Hong Kong IGCSE programme teaches our students to be independent, passionate, responsible and confident in their preparation for their examinations as well as later on in life.

Our IGCSE programme offers a wide variety of subjects and multiple pathways for our students, catering to different English language proficiency levels. The programme is taught in a small class setting and has a high level of personalisation, thereby ensuring all students receive the needed attention in order to thrive in their examinations.
