Physics Department

The Department of Physics aims to provide physics-related learning environment for students to develop scientific literacy, so that they can prepare for further studies or careers in fields related to physics, and become lifelong learners in science and technology. In order to cater for learner’s diversity, we have adopted Learning Circle in which teachers share and collaborate ideas and materials.

Curriculum Information

Junior Curriculum

The department helps students to develop interest, motivation and sense of achievement in their study of physics so that they possess an appreciation of the nature and development in physics, and an awareness of the applications of physics in the fields of science, engineering , technology and environmental protection.

Topics in our curriculum are Energy, Matter as Particles, Making Use of Electricity, Basic Force and motion, Heat and Gases, Transfer Processes and Change of State.

Senior  Curriculum

To cope with HKDSE, some knowledge of laws, principles and concepts of physics and the application in daily life prescribed in the syllabus are also be provided to help students establish a conceptual framework for Physics and an understanding of its methodology.

Outside the Classroom

Physics competitions such as Physics Olympiad are chosen to allow our students to join. Besides that, Academic Function and Ocean Park Experience Days are the two occasions for our Physics students to put their theories into practices.

Chemistry Department

The Chemistry department at TTCA has dedicated Science specialist teachers who instil enthusiasm and passion in students. Our department facilitates students to be proactive learners and develop their learning skills and scientific literacy through our learning strategy. Besides having chemistry related knowledge and practical skills, students are expected to make rational and logical judgments, implement Chemistry knowledge in their daily lives. 

Curriculum Information

Junior Curriculum 

Experiencing and working as groups of scientists, students are facilitated to be proactive learners and be good team players during their secondary study. In S1, we focus on developing their learning interest and potential in chemistry through a series of practical lessons. In S2, students are allowed to experience the learning mode of NSS and to further explore their potentials in Chemistry.


Senior Curriculum 

With the stepping stone in Chemistry (HKDSE), students are allowed to engage themselves in medical, health and environmental related programmes in their university study. There are more than 27 programmes available in universities in Hong Kong which require Chemistry as one of the elective subjects. In S4 - S6, students are well equipped with Chemistry knowledge and different technical and literal skills. 

Outside the Classroom 

We are strong believers on learning beyond classrooms. We make sure our students are absorbing knowledge on different occasions besides formal class time.


A program was called “Little Scientists”, in which a group of TTCA students taught some primary students about science. Primary students could gain knowledge and experience the learning style in secondary school. To let the primary students appreciate the interconnections among science, technology, society and environments, four topics, including Water Purification, Sight Correction, identifying Gases and Force Measurement were introduced.


In 2014 and 2015 respectively, our students got High Distinction on Australian Notational Chemistry Quiz. On top of that, they were awarded one medal in Secondary School Mathematics and Science Competition organised by the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. In 2016-2017, they extended their learning in Melbourne. During the trip, they engaged in a wide variety of activities and experiences that secured the knowledge, such as conservation of animals and environment, which they had gained in the classroom. 

In 2018, two TTCA students teamed up with students of fellow schools under Tsung Tsin Mission of Hong Kong representing Hong Kong to attend International Tuymaada Olympiad (ITO) and the research projects in International Research School organized by the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia). Tsung Tsin Team got the satisfactory results in ITO: two awards in Chemistry and Physics respectively and one award in Mathematics in International Science Games 2018.

Biology Department 

Our department strives to:

  1. provide students with plenty opportunities to explore and understand the nature of life;

  2. help students to learn and understand biological facts, terms, concepts and principles;

  3. cultivate an objective attitude towards evidence, critical mind towards experimental results, and ability to conduct scientific studies in our students;

  4. help students to link the knowledge of biology to their daily lives; and

  5. nurture students to appreciate the beauty of life and further to treasure lives.

Curriculum Information

Junior Curriculum 

TTCA Junior Biology is a vigorous yet enjoyable journey between ecosystems, human body and cells. Pre-lesson tasks followed by challenging in-class discussion and tasks including reading and observation offer students chances to learn proactively and think like a biologist so that they are able to grasp biological ideas.


Senior Curriculum

Introduction of e-learning platforms, Google Classroom and Nearpod, promotes proactive participation and self-directed learning among our senior-form students. Furthermore, students are able to expand their knowledge and depth of understanding of Biology, along with generic skills in learning through collaborative projects, self-directed studies, presentations, visits and trips.

Outside the Classroom

  • Reading Project: Selected students will read a book related to Biology and give an introductory presentation to the classmates.

  • Inquiry Based Projects Involving Students of Different Levels and Talents: Some of the projects require our senior students to work with the junior ones. The seniors need to think, plan and teach, while junior students need to work and learn in the project. We have also worked with the City University of Hong Kong and the Ocean Park Conservation Fund closely on the project of rearing horseshoe crabs.

  • Self-directed Learning Projects and Workshops: Students are allowed to carry out the insertion of fluorescent gene into the bacteria and make them glow. By using the pipetmen, PCR machine, electrophoresis gels, bacteria cultures, students taste the power of modern technology directly and be inspired. 

  • Annual Biology Symposium: Students with good performance present their work to the juniors in our auditorium. It is an adventurous experience to both the speakers and the audience. 

  • Juvenile Horseshoe Crab Rearing Programme: Students were interviewed by RTHK (TV) for the excellent participation in the programme. Students with artistic talents joined the Young Voices, Horseshoe Crabs and the Arts competition in the past few years, and were recognized for their participation by the Ecological Research and Development Group (ERDG) of the United States as Selected Artist.
