I am honoured to welcome you to the Anfield International Kindergarten website as the Executive Headteacher and currently acting Head of School at our Kowloon Tong campus. If you are a parent looking for a kindergarten experience where the team surrounding your child will pay close attention to them socially, emotionally and academically, then you have found the right place.

At Anfield, our Catholic ethos underpins everything that we do, ensuring all members of our Anfield community are treated like ‘family’ and are inspired to aim high from their first educational experience. We pride ourselves on the quality of our teaching staff, delivering excellent teaching and learning through the British Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum, on a daily basis. Encouraging students to explore through play based activities and hands-on learning opportunities. 

I have worked within education for almost 20 years, both in the United Kingdom and internationally, and I am passionate that every child deserves an equal opportunity to develop into ‘being all they can be’ through their learning journey. With eight years of experience at Anfield, I am in the privileged position of having been part of the way in which each of our schools have grown and developed within the ever-changing landscape of education and the provision that we offer to our families.

Whilst at Anfield International Kindergarten, your child will be encouraged to become a lifelong learner, developing into a critical thinker and an ever increasing effective communicator. The atmosphere within our school is one of positivity and opportunity, with our familiarity being a strength in building good relationships with students and parents alike.

Please accept my invitation to come and see our school in action and to speak to members of our high-quality staff team. I look forward to welcoming you to Anfield International Kindergarten and to helping you experience our unique qualities for yourself.

Kind Regrads,

Elise Rees

Head of School – Whampoa

Vickie Russell

Welcome to Anfield International Kindergarten and Nursery at Whampoa. 

As an Early Years specialist, I am incredibly passionate about the first stages in a child’s education and how we can prepare them for their future journey. At Anfield we believe in creating opportunities for children to access a broad and balanced curriculum which allows them to explore independently, in order to discover their passions and interests. I have been working in education for over twenty years, and have taught in the Early Years and Primary in both the U.K. and Hong Kong. I have been with the Anfield team as Deputy Head of School in our Kowloon Tong campus for the last few years, and am now excited to be the Head of School in Whampoa. 

Education is always evolving, and at Anfield we work together across all our campuses to ensure our students always receive the highest quality of education. Children should feel safe and secure in their learning environment, so at Anfield we provide a school which supports this and is inviting, and engaging. Our Catholic ethos encourages children to learn both academically and spiritually. Using our Anfield Attributes, we teach our students to be fair, innovative, determined and more. We build their self-confidence and self-belief, allowing them to be resilient in this ever-changing world. 

I hope that you find our website useful and it gives you a virtual insight into our school and who we are, however, it does not compete with a visit to see our wonderful school for yourself. I look forward to welcoming you to our Whampoa campus to look around and see first-hand the way in which we educate the hearts and minds of our students.

Kind Regards,

Vickie Russell
