ADMISSIONS

We do not have a mold for Wahyanites, as we treasure the unique talents of each young man. Throughout our long history, Wah Yan education has always been one that develops the whole person. We welcome your application if you share our vision, mission and values. Find out more about us to see if Wah Yan is the learning community for you.

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).

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.

FORM TWO TO FORM FOUR ADMISSIONS

A limited number of places may be available at the end of a school year. Interested applicants may make their applications in June. The selection process, including entrance tests and interviews, is conducted in June and July. The deadline, application procedures and forms can be found on the school website in early June.

FEES

The College is government-funded and our students do not have to pay any school fees.
That being said, Tong Fai (堂費) and an approved collection for specific purposes are collected in order to provide essential resources, materials, facilities and equipment. The amount in total is $750+$200 per student per annum for the current school year. There are other possible fees for activities and coach fees for sports teams and music groups.

Financial assistance is available for families experiencing short or long-term inability to pay fees. To provide quality education to everyone regardless of their family or economic background is aligned to our Vision and Mission.

SPORTS & MUSIC SCHOLARS

The titles of Sports and Music Scholars are considered high honours at Wah Yan, and our Scholars work extra hard to repay that trust. Financial support may be offered to awardees from families in need. Every year, we award the titles of Sports and Music Scholars to new entrants who excel in these fields.

SPORTS SCHOLARS

The title of Sports Scholar is offered to Form One applicants with exceptional potential in their holistic development. This translates into an outstanding talent in sports, a solid academic record, an exemplary character and a strong potential in contributing to their communities as leaders in their fields. Wah Yan competes both locally and internationally in the following sports: athletics, badminton, basketball, beach volleyball, cross-country, fencing, football, ice-hockey, lawn bowling, orienteering, squash, swimming, table tennis, tennis and volleyball.

MUSIC SCHOLARS

The title of Music Scholar is offered to Form One applicants on the condition that their application to the College has been successful through standard procedures. The Honour List of Music Scholars is the most sought-after among musicians at Wah Yan. Typical awardees of the Music Scholarship are competent in at least one, preferably two, musical instruments (Western or Chinese), at a level of at least Grade 6 from the Associated Board or other recognised examining organisations. Shortlisted candidates would be invited for an audition and an interview.
