The goal of the Academic Committee is to gauge the academic standards of students and provide a platform for discussion of academic affairs. The committee explores new methods to enhance the effectiveness of learning and teaching. It also encourages collaboration among subjects and taps outside resources to facilitate learning and teaching.
Returning to the new campus in March 2019 has provided the committee with new opportunities to maximise the learning potential of students. The new campus is equipped with up-to-date teaching aids underpinned by the latest technology. With the advancement of technology, the school can provide online platforms to facilitate self-directed learning. E-learning can be conducted inside and outside school; learning is now beyond the limitations of time and space.
Secondary One to Three offer a broad general curriculum with a good balance among languages, arts, science, cultural and practical subjects as well as religious education and physical education.
In Secondary Four to Six (NSS curriculum), students can choose 3 electives from a range of 14 subjects besides the 4 core subjects: Chinese, English, Mathematics and Liberal Studies / Citizenship and Social Development.
Students will take the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education Examination at the end of Secondary Six for admission to tertiary institutes through the Joint University Programmes Admission System (JUPAS).
As an E.M.I. (English as the Medium of Instruction) school, Ying Wa adopts English as the teaching medium in most subjects with the aim of achieving biliteracy (Chinese and English) and trilingualism with the inclusion of Putonghua.
All subjects, except Chinese Language, Chinese Language and Culture, Chinese Literature, Chinese History, Religious Education, Physical Education and Putonghua, are taught in English.
Lessons are arranged on a 5-day week basis. Toastmaster Leadership Training Programmes, Oral English Classes, Public Speaking Classes and Instrument Classes are offered after school and on Saturdays.
