Security

Creating a safe environment
FIS endeavours to provide a safe and secure environment for students and their parents.

CCTV

CCTV cameras are installed at Blue Pool Road, Jardine's Lookout and Chai Wan campuses for the safety of students, staff and visitors. A notice that CCTV is in operation is always visible in areas where cameras are in use.

Security Card Access System

In addition to the presence of security guards at the entrance of our 4 campuses, entry to Blue Pool Road and TKO is controlled by an access card system, for additional security.

Transportation

Use of the school bus or public transportation is recommended to access our campuses. As is the case for many Hong Kong schools, no parking is available for visitors’ cars on site.

Faculty & Staff

The Faces behind the School
400 people from 27 countries make up our team. Enthusiastic and passionate about education, each of them are committed to the best interests of our students.
