Practical information

Find out the practical details about school life, from uniforms and school supplies to the canteen and bus services.


Primary (PS to CM2/NS to Y6)

Students are required to wear their uniform every day. Their teacher will tell them whether to wear their school or sports uniform.

Secondary (6ème to Terminale/Y7 to Y13)

Secondary students are only required to wear their sports uniform on the days they have physical education classes, or for school outings.  

Books and stationery

Primary (PS to CM2/NS to Y6)

Stationery and textbooks for both streams are distributed to students free of charge.


Secondary (6ème to Terminale/Y7 to Y13)

You will need to supply your own stationery, books and textbooks, as per the lists provided by teachers before the start of the school year.

School bookshops – BPR & TKO

The bookshops at Blue Pool Road and Tseung Kwan O campuses offer stationery and supplies at very competitive prices.


Each of our four campuses has a school canteen where we aim to provide students with healthy meals and uphold high hygiene standards. School meals also provide an opportunity for students to learn about nutrition, table manners and being part of a community.

Every day, all our students, from kindergarten through to upper secondary, receive a full, balanced meal containing the five essential nutrients.

Meals are prepared by our supplier, Compass.

From kindergarten to CP (inclusive), children are served at the table. From CE1 onwards, children serve themselves.

Those who do not want to register for school meals can bring their own packed lunches. 

For the health and safety of our students, FIS is a nut-free school.

School bus

There is a school bus service, as we want to make it as easy as possible for all our students to travel to school.  

We work with several different bus companies, depending on the campus and where students live. The school bus schedule is set by each company in line with school hours. They confirm pick up times at the beginning of the school year.
