FORM ONE ADMISSIONS
As a Grant-In-Aid boys’ school, Wah Yan College, Hong Kong can only admit Hong Kong male residents who are eligible for admission. We follow the Education Bureau’s Secondary School Places Allocation (SSPA) System. The SSPA System is divided into two stages, namely Discretionary Places (DP) and Central Allocation (CA).
For details, please visit:
Discretionary Places (DP)
Our school accepts discretionary places (DP) applications in January each year. Assessment is divided into three parts: (A) Holistic Development and Learning (30%), including: Sports, Music, Art & Creativity, Conduct, Academic and other Learning Achievements, (B) Position in Place Rank Order List provided by the EDB (20%), and (C) Individual and Group Interviews (50%).
Central Allocation (CA)
We participate in the Secondary School Places Allocation System through the Central Allocation (CA) stage in May. At this stage, Primary Six students would return their school choices via their primary schools to EDB.
Special Admissions in July
Our Form One places for Discretionary Places (DP) and Central Allocation (CA) stages are normally full. However, limited places may be available for special admissions after the release of the Central Allocation (CA) results in July for the next school year. The number of places varies every year, depending on the number of retention in Form One in the school year.
