The School was founded in 1987 with the donation from Dr. Tin Ka Ping and Yan Oi Tong Limited acting as the School's sponsoring body. There are approximately 750 students, with 4 classes in each form from S1 to S6. Under the leadership of the Principal, the teaching team comprises 59 teachers who possessed professional qualifications of university graduates or above. The ratio of teachers with postgraduate qualifications is one of the highest among all secondary schools in Hong Kong. Currently, around 50% of our teaching staff is holders of Master / Doctoral Degrees.
Our School Improvement Programme (SIP) was completed in mid-2005. The School’s teaching block houses 25 standard classrooms, over 10 micro-teaching rooms, 4 science laboratories and several specialized learning centres (including a Language and Culture Multi-Media Learning Centre, an English Language Multi-Media Laboratory, a Mathematics Learning Centre, two Computer Rooms and a Liberal Studies Resource Centre, etc.). Other communal facilities include a school hall, a weight-training gymnasium, a student activity centre, a school library, a medical room, a student counseling room, Parents’ Resources Centre and sports playgrounds.
