Troubled British boarding school Mount Kelly to begin classes in Hong Kong despite lacking approval

School to provide pupils with free “induction programme” in small groups that will circumvent regulations

A troubled British private boarding school in Hong Kong said on Wednesday it would begin classes next week despite having not yet won approval from the Education Bureau for one of its new campuses.

In an attempt to honour its promise to start primary classes this September, Mount Kelly School Hong Kong said it would provide its pupils with a free “induction programme” next week in small groups that would circumvent regulations.
