Replied by: SEM

Question:

Regarding the supply and demand for Secondary One places, will the Government inform this Council of :

  1. the respective numbers of Secondary One school places in each secondary school net in the past two, the current and the next school years; and

  2. the respective numbers of Primary Six school boys and girls in each secondary school net in the current school year?

Reply:

Madam President:

Under the Secondary School Places Allocation (SSPA) system, the whole territory of Hong Kong is divided into 18 school nets according to the administration districts. The school net to which a Primary Six student belongs is determined by the location of the primary school which he/she attends. In addition to the secondary schools in the district, a school net usually also includes places from secondary schools in other districts in order to meet the demand arising from the changing number of students and to provide parents with more choices.

  1. The number of Secondary One school places (include both discretionary places and places for central allocation) provided by secondary schools in each district for the SSPA system in the 1999/2000, 2000/01, 2001/02 and 2002/03 school years are-
