Chatteris English Development Programme
The Chatteris English Development Programme has been helping students improve their English in local schools throughout Hong Kong since 1990. Our programme places Chatteris Native-speaking English Tutors in our partner schools full-time for one academic year from 1 September – 31 May to create an immersive English language environment. Throughout the year, our tutors fully integrate into the school system and provide vital, authentic English interaction for students through interactive, engaging lessons, varied extracurricular activities to cater for different student interests, and experiential learning opportunities for students to use authentic English outside of the classroom. Altogether this support for student English language learning enhances their confidence using the language, their enjoyment of the language, and their intercultural understanding, granting them greater opportunities in an increasingly globalised world.

Having two Chatteris Tutors has led to a fully immersive English environment that provides all of our students with the opportunity to use English authentically. As well as teaching our students, Morgan and Miriam mentor and inspire them. We hope to continue our partnership with Chatteris for many years to come.”

Feature Project – RAVE Reading Programme for Schools
“RAVE Reading: Pleasurable Language Learning through Real and Virtual Experiences” was a programme under the English Alliance project of the Standing Committee on Language Education and Research (SCOLAR) from the 2015/16 to 2018/19 school years.
We are grateful for the support of SCOLAR across this period which allowed us to impact more than 500 students over the course of the project.
Benefits To Students
When surveyed, our partner schools praised the large impact our CEDP programme had on their students’:
Motivation and interest in English
Enjoyment of English activities
Confidence speaking English
"One For One, Adopt A School"
Chatteris believes that English should never be a barrier to students in Hong Kong, no matter what their socio-economic background. To this end, we established our “One for One, Adopt a School” project in 2015 to support schools which cater to a high proportion of less privileged students.
The model is simple – an eligible school funds one of our tutors and we enlist a donor from the wider Hong Kong society to fund a second tutor in the same school. Two tutors exponentially increases the English opportunities open to students in the school.
WE ARE LOOKING FOR "ONE FOR ONE" PARTNER SCHOOLS
