School History
St. Paul's Convent School (SPCS), a Catholic secondary school for girls from the age of eleven to eighteen, is sponsored and administered by the Sisters of St. Paul de Chartres, an international congregation founded in France with a history of three hundred years of educational excellence.
SPCS, being one of the oldest Grant-in-aid Schools in Hong Kong, was founded in 1854. It was formerly called French Convent School and even up to the present day, there is still a number of non-Chinese speaking students. The school moved to its present site in 1914 and the present building was completed in 1981. The school was renamed St. Paul's Convent School in 1955. A Sesquicentennial Block of seven storeys was added to the campus to celebrate its 150 years of educational excellence.
Since September 2004, SPCS has changed its status from Grant-in-aid School to Direct Subsidy Scheme (DSS). This change has reaped many benefits and flexibility that enhance the school's unique vision and mission of developing an all-round educational excellence that is being recognized by all renowned institutions, both locally and internationally. The existing values of excellence and efficiency will be strengthened to provide an education of world-class standards for our Paulinians.
