How does the government subsidise the DSS schools?

The amount of recurrent subsidy received by DSS schools will vary, depending on their intake of students and fees.

DSS school will continue to receive full recurrent subsidy from government until its fee level reaches 2 1/3 of the average unit cost of an aided school place. Beyond that level, no recurrent subsidy will be provided.

Remarks: The average unit cost of an aided school place for a school with an operating history below 16 years (in academic year 2018/2019)

Primary 1 to 6: $58, 387
Form 1 to Form 3: $60, 482
