The school seeks to provide a future-oriented holistic education to children. SISHK Primary strives to raise bilingual children and educate students from all nationalities.

Children grow up to be respectful and responsible individuals who are ready to face the challenges of life and adapt to the ever-changing world.
The Preparatory Years Programme focuses on the holistic development of each child as well as bilingualism. This is a two-year programme which looks after the physical, intellectual, moral, social and emotional development.
Children progress seamlessly from this programme to the primary programme and then on to the secondary programme. Even at the preschool level, the programme is quite rigorous which provides each child with a broad understanding of the process of learning.
The primary programme is broad-based and quite rigorous leading to the holistic development of students. Students learn both in and outside the classroom.
