Ian Clayton, Head of the International Stream at FIS, said that the awards recognised the talent, dedication and commitment of both students and staff. “As always we are delighted by the achievements of our students which reflect not only their hard work, but also the hard work, support and dedication of the teachers and parents, all of whom can be justifiably proud.“
The achievements of these students will be celebrated during the final assembly of the year on 30th June when they will be presented with their Outstanding Cambridge Learners Awards.
During the June 2015 IGCSE examinations, 100% of FIS students successfully obtained their certificates with at least one A* or A. Among them, 34% achieved at least 8 A* or A and 24% achieved A* or A in all the subjects they chose. Furthermore, among all the subjects taken by FIS students, 98% were awarded A* - C and 75% were awarded A* or A.
FIS was established in 1963 as one of the first international schools in Hong Kong. The school offers two streams: the French and International Streams, preparing students towards certification in the French national examination, the French Baccalaureate or the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma. In 1988, FIS became the first in Hong Kong to be authorised as an IB World School.
Currently, the school is one of the largest international through schools in Hong Kong and welcomes over 2,600 students from Kindergarten to Year 13/Terminale, representing 40 different nationalities, across four campuses in Happy Valley, Jardine’s Lookout, Chai Wan and Hung Hom.
The school’s mission is to provide, together with families, a nurturing, culturally diverse community that inspires our young people to realize their true potential as confident, independent learners and responsible global citizens with moral values and integrity.
