聖士提反堂是香港聖公會第一間華人教堂,原址於1865年在荷李活道建立,至1880年代遷至西營盤現址。原計劃於1934年重建聖堂,但二次大戰的出現,原有的建堂籌款改以捐助國家及救濟難民。在重建資金所餘無幾的情況下,計劃因而暫時擱置,直至1963年才圓滿完成。及後,隨著戰後西營盤人口急增,教會增添辦校角色,從1950年開始設立幼稚園及小學(後者在08年停辦),並於1968年在聖堂旁的空地上成立中學部。

St. Stephen’s Church was the first Chinese church established by Sheng Kung Hui.  It was first built on Hollywood Road in 1865, and moved to its current site in Sai Ying Pun in the 1880s.  Although plans were made to rebuild the church in 1934, after the break out of World War II the necessary funds were donated to refugees and the Chinese government.  The rebuilding plan was shelved due to a lack of funding and it was not completed until 1963.  Later, because of a post-war population surge in Sai Ying Pun, the church started to provide education.  In 1950, a kindergarten and a primary school were established (the latter of which closed in 2008), and in 1968, a secondary school was built in the vacant site next to the church.
