SPCS is located in a densely populated area of Causeway Bay. (Click here to view the location map.) Together with the private primary and pre-school section and St. Paul's Hospital which adjoins a chapel and a sesquicentennial garden, the entire compound takes up an area of 7000 square metres.
The Secondary, Primary and Pre-school Sections have their own separate buildings. There are two school halls, one each for the Secondary and the Primary. The Secondary School hall consists of a balcony as well and can accommodate over a thousand students. Apart from the school hall which is also used for indoor sports, there are also an indoor heated swimming pool, a covered playground, two netball/basketball courts and a garden for recreation. The teaching block includes thirty-four classrooms, six science laboratories, a school library, a multi-media self-access learning centre (MMLC), an information technology learning centre (ITLC), a quality kitchen and other 'key learning areas' special rooms for english, chinese, mathematics, humanities and religious studies. Moreover, some recent additions include a dance studio, a video-broadcasting studio and a micro-teaching room on the 6th floor.
Our School Improvement Programme (SIP) was completed in June 2005. It is a seven-storey block which integrates with our existing school campus. It houses a Student Activity Center on the second floor, and a Computer Assisted Learning (CAL) Laboratory, a Preparation Room and a Language Laboratory on the third floor. The fourth floor consists of an art room and its display area, while the fifth floor comprises a music room and its storeroom. The sixth floor features the Staff Room and Staff Common Room with pantry. The roof has been transformed into a Classroom of the Future which boasts an extended skylight feature, along with renewable solar panels. At the lobby entrance, there stands a fountain that operates on renewable solar energy. Eventually, this area will become an environmental gallery in which environmental models and equipment will be displayed and used for educational purposes.
Furthermore, the DIP Annex at 12 School Street, Tai Hang has been established in order to host international training and seminars for visitors. This has been registered to house the school-based Diversified International/Innovative Programme in partnership with different institutions.
