Principal’s Welcome

We are part of the English Schools Foundation (ESF), Hong Kong’s largest provider of English-medium international education. We are an all-through special school delivering a curriculum in English. Our school was established in 1986 and named after Mrs. Sarah Roe who was a well-known occupational therapist in Hong Kong. The building was donated by the Hong Kong Jockey Club.

We have an enrollment of 70 students with an age range of five to nineteen years. All students have additional learning needs. Many students have a diagnosis of autism and some students have complex needs.

Our mission statement is for Everyone to be Happy, Engaged and Learning. We are committed to providing the best education for our students, and passionate about providing them with meaningful learning experiences which promote their development. We proudly offer a bespoke JCSRS Curriculum that is designed to be broad and balanced to meet the needs of our diverse learners. The curriculum is taught through subjects but has significant elements of project-based learning that support the development of global competencies for deep learning and the generalisation of skills beyond the classroom. Along with teaching and classroom support staff, the school is supported by a multi-agency team. Collaboration between all professionals and our families is an essential aspect of the success of our school.

Our school has a wonderful community feel and students benefit from the inclusion opportunities in other ESF schools. We recognise the individual needs of all our children and through our committed and experienced staff, will work in partnership with parents so that we can develop each child’s potential.

Please contact us if you would like more information. I want us all to continue to work together for every student to be the best that they can be.
