Sha Tin College(沙田學院)
Sha Tin College
Sha Tin College (Chinese: 沙田學院, Abbreviated: STC) is a co-educational international secondary school in Hong Kong and a member of the English Schools Foundation.
Established in 1982 as the Shatin Annexe based in the campus of KGV School in Kowloon Tong, the school relocated to 3 Lai Wo Lane, Fo Tan in 1985, adopting its present name. While most students currently follow the I/GCSE and International Baccalaureate Diploma programmes, the BTEC Extended Diploma was also offered as a pilot programme from August 2011. The school is currently led by Principal Marc Morris. Enrollment stands at approximately 1,200 students, drawn mostly from the New Territories and North Kowloon areas. Sha Tin College was until recently the youngest of the ESF secondary schools, being founded in 1982.
Sha Tin College is located on a hill in Fo Tan, Sha Tin and provides education from Year 7 through Year 13. From 2013-2014 onwards, Sha Tin College's houses are based on a mythical theme and each of the four houses is named after a mythical creature.
The school had its own indoor gymnasium built in 2002, with two basketball courts, six badminton courts, three volleyball courts and a rock climbing wall; there is also a swimming pool and an astro-turf pitch. Sha Tin Junior School, located right next to the college, can be viewed as its feeder school with students having the option of directly graduating into the college.
