Discovery College is a private independent school, operated by English Schools Foundation (ESF) in Discovery Bay, Lantau Island. The new campus combines a primary school and a secondary school, which in Hong Kong is called a 'through train' school.
The Hong Kong government provided a capital grant for construction costs equivalent to the cost of a new local standard school. ESF added to the grant to provide a higher standard of accommodation and special facilities.
The school began full operation in August 2008, serving over 1,400 students. It has a gross floor area of 24,500m², with a fully equipped indoor sports hall, a performing arts centre and plenty of high quality educational facilities and amenities, including laboratories, workshops, an information resource centre/library, gymnasium, swimming pool and cafeteria.

Arup’s project management provided an end to end service for ESF, from the concept planning to detailed design, construction and finally, the handover stage.
