Harrow International School Hong Kong is located in the Gold Coast area of the New Territories and its pupils come from a wide catchment area over the majority of Hong Kong.
It is accessed by road by the majority of its day pupils via Castle Peak Road, which connects to Tuen Mun, and then Tsing Ying Road.
Castle Peak Road can experience significant amounts of traffic congestion, especially on weekday mornings, and as the local area undergoes further development and population growth over the next few years; parents, pupils and members of staff in the Harrow Hong Kong community share responsibility with other road users in the local area for the safety and efficiency of the road system in the area. The School will continue to work with the HKSARG Transport Department to investigate short, medium and long-term structural measures to enhance traffic efficiency in the local area.
The School encourages its day pupils whenever possible to take its bus service run by Chun Wo to travel to and from the School in order to make an effective contribution to alleviating traffic congestion in the local area as well as keeping daily traffic flow in, around and out of the School campus manageable as the School roll grows. Equally, it has implemented other measures to help in managing the number of vehicles which need to access the School campus.
The School’s bus service is provided by Chun Wo Bus Services Limited. Chun Wo Bus Services Limited operates routes to and from Hong Kong Island, Kowloon, Discovery Bay, Gold Coast, Siu Lam, Tuen Mun etc. Approximately 850 pupils (including Weekly Boarders) currently use this bus service for travel to and from the School. The buses are equipped with appropriate seat belts and each bus has its own adult supervision.
Any questions about the service, the fees and the routes should be addressed to the Chun Wo Bus Services Limited Business Development Manager via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All new pupils are required to use the School bus service. Only new pupils in the youngest age groups who live in areas without access to the School bus service will be able to apply for a car permit.
The School has a very limited number of daily full permits that can be issued and in line with the service agreement. These will only be for the youngest pupils in K1 and K2 who do not live on a bus route and for those with exceptional circumstances, such as medical issues.
All other day pupils will need to travel to School via bus or on foot.
Boarding pupils may apply for car permits which are valid for evening drop off at the start of the week and for after School collection at the end of the week.
There is no drop off and collection allowed outside of the School or anywhere along Tsing Ying Road.
