About Us

School Overview


Creative Secondary School (CSS) is a progressive, innovative and forward thinking school. Our learning approach integrates the best of Chinese and international educational practices. Academic rigour at CSS is complemented by a happy and vibrant school life.

We prepare our students for the opportunities and challenges of the modern, rapidly changing world. We aim to cultivate in them a strong sense of cultural identity, a passion for life and a commitment to make the world a better place.

Our students are purposeful, compassionate and globally minded, and strive for goals they willingly and confidently set for themselves. They develop strong motivation for learning and embrace a set of positive values and capabilities, ready to realise their potential and serve the community.

We are pleased that our graduates have been able to find their passion and continue to pursue their aspirations in tertiary education and beyond. This is exactly the strategic vision of our school board.

CSS is an award-winning Inviting School committed to the educational philosophy and practices of the International Alliance of Invitational Education (IAIE). As an inviting school, we maintain an exceptionally caring school ethos within which students are positively encouraged to learn and develop their talent to the full.

We benefit from our operation as a Direct Subsidy Scheme school which receives government funding subsidy. We principally offer the Hong Kong secondary curriculum for local students and prepare them for the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education Examination (HKDSE).

We have been an IB World School since 2009. We deliver the first three years of the Hong Kong secondary school curriculum through the pedagogical approach and framework of the IB Middle Years Programme (IB MYP). The IB MYP is concept-driven and promotes inter-disciplinary, inquiry-based, collaborative learning, as well as strong communication skills and international-mindedness. In the last two years, suitable students may be offered the IB Diploma as an alternative Diploma to the Hong Kong Diploma for university entrance.

Founded in 2006, CSS is a part of a continuum of 3 schools that share a common educational philosophy for students aged from 3 to 18. Creative Primary School (CPS) and its kindergarten were founded in 1985; CPS is also an award-winning Inviting School and an IB World School.
