Methodist College is committed to providing a quality and innovative curriculum that not only prepares our students for academic excellence, but also equips them with suitable skills to meet the challenging demands of the 21st century.
BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) and Use of Technology
We experiment and engage with emerging technologies and pedagogies both inside and outside classrooms.
All classrooms are equipped with additional hardware (e.g. Apple TV, double screens and projectors, touchscreen monitors for teacher, etc) to facilitate eLearning and interactive lessons in class.
Owing to the impact of COVID-19 and the concerted effort of devoted teachers, the pace of eLearning development in the College was greatly enhanced. ELearning is adopted in all levels.
BYODD Scheme is now implemented S1-5. Read more

Top and gifted students are selected into the Talent Pool where they get special training to further their talents in English, Chinese, Mathematics, Science, Humanities and Visual Arts.
Every year, some students also successfully pass the online screening programmes and enroll in the Hong Kong Academy for Gifted Education (HKAGE) which continue to stretch talents in our school.
High-quality Teaching Force and Teacher Professional Development
We have a high-quality teaching force that is committed to professional development.
All of the teachers are degree holders, among whom 40, including the Principal, have one or more Master’s Degree, accounting for 73% of the teaching staff.
We also emphasise continuous teacher professional development which could enable teachers to update their knowledge, improve their skills, and boost students’ learning outcomes. Many of our teachers have become certified Apple Teachers.
Our teachers are willing to share among themselves and reach out to benefit the wider professional community.

In order to provide both junior and senior students with a platform to use English in an authentic way, an English-rich environment, both within the English department and across the curriculum in other subjects, has been developed.
Tailor-made learning materials in English curriculum
As the academic needs of our students are ever-changing, our English department creates tailor-made reading and writing materials. Our writing materials cover both genre-specific language and genre-specific features. Students are explicitly taught reading skills, with all covered by the end of Form 3. These unique features of our curriculum help to enhance students’ English proficiency. In order for students to gain an appreciation of both the language and culture of English, the school-based Language Arts Curriculum exposes students to different text types, including: poetry, drama, short stories and novels. Different form-based English activities are also arranged for students to use various English skills and showcase their talents and creativity.

Various modes of assessment including assessment as, for and of learning, are adopted in the curriculum, aiming at supporting our students to learn in a reflective manner, through self-directed and peer evaluation.
To encourage students to cultivate their love in English and gain exposure to using English in different situations, a variety of English activities have been designed.
Since its inception in 2011, the Gem Passport – a self-directed program, has been well-established as part of students’ school life English experiences at Methodist College. Students put forth much effort into taking part in a variety of English-related activities. From Sept 2020, this passport has been turned into an electronic version stored in students’ iPads. Attendance for different activities will also be taken electronically.

Language Across Curriculum
With an aim to enhance students’ English proficiency for learning content subjects in English and to ensure a better interface of junior and senior content subject curriculum, our school has launched the ‘Language Across Curriculum’ project since 2011. With the collaboration of the English Department, tailor-made content subject learning and teaching course materials in Mathematics, Science, History and Geography have been developed. Working closely with the Language Learning Support Section (LLSS) of the Education Bureau, our school case has been shared our lesson materials and students’ work to the LLSS website.
To celebrate our success and achievement, our work has been included in the updated CDC English Language Education Key Learning Area Curriculum Guide (Primary 1-Secondary 6) 2017 published by the Education Bureau, as good examples for all schools’ reference. An example (Example 2) can be found here.
Ongoing effort is being made to enhance Language Across Curriculum by the joint effort of different subjects.
Different teaching and learning methodologies are adopted, with a variety of e-learning tools being used extensively on our campus, and at different stages of students’ English learning. Such tools are introduced at the pre-lesson, post-lesson and while-lesson stages, in order to arouse students’ motivation and improve the learning atmosphere of the classroom, while consolidating and reprocessing their learning.
