Message from the Head of School

“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn”

Benjamin Franklin
Head of School


Welcome to Anfield International Kindergarten and Nursery at Whampoa. 

As an Early Years specialist, I am incredibly passionate about the first stages in a child’s education and how we can prepare them for their future journey. At Anfield we believe in creating opportunities for children to access a broad and balanced curriculum which allows them to explore independently, in order to discover their passions and interests. I have been working in education for over twenty years, and have taught in the Early Years and Primary in both the U.K. and Hong Kong. I have been with the Anfield team as Deputy Head of School in our Kowloon Tong campus for the last few years, and am now excited to be the Head of School in Whampoa. 

Education is always evolving, and at Anfield we work together across all our campuses to ensure our students always receive the highest quality of education. Children should feel safe and secure in their learning environment, so at Anfield we provide a school which supports this and is inviting, and engaging. Our Catholic ethos encourages children to learn both academically and spiritually. Using our Anfield Attributes, we teach our students to be fair, innovative, determined and more. We build their self-confidence and self-belief, allowing them to be resilient in this ever-changing world. 

I hope that you find our website useful and it gives you a virtual insight into our school and who we are, however, it does not compete with a visit to see our wonderful school for yourself. I look forward to welcoming you to our Whampoa campus to look around and see first-hand the way in which we educate the hearts and minds of our students.
