Wycombe Abbey UK was founded more than 120 years ago and it has become the leading independent boarding school in the UK, ranked number one for academic results. Around one-third of Wycombe Abbey UK’s graduates receive offers of places at Oxford and Cambridge each year, with others going on to top universities in the USA such as Columbia, Harvard, MIT, and Stanford.
Now Wycombe Abbey School Hong Kong is going to be opening its doors this September and enrollment has already begun! The school prides itself on offering a learning environment where intellectual curiosity is encouraged and able to flourish.
Wycombe Abbey School Hong Kong is set to open a co-educational primary school in September 2019. The new campus is situated in Tin Wan, Aberdeen. The stunning campus will be equipped with dedicated facilities for Speech and Drama, Music, Art, Science and STEM subjects and state of the art facilities!
Their bespoke curriculum has been specifically designed to provide primary age children with an approach to teaching and learning that combines all that is best in the British and Hong Kong primary education systems, ensuring that they are ideally prepared for the next steps in their lives and schooling.
Wycombe Abbey School Hong Kong Ethos
Their ethos is rooted in a simple principle that a holistic education, which incorporates a diverse co-curricular programme, will foster the skills required to succeed, including creatively, emotional intelligence, teamwork, and leadership.
At Wycombe Abbey School Hong Kong students will be taught seven Chinese language classes per week at each year group. Chinese will be taught as a discrete subject with a similar number of lessons allocated to Chinese, English, and Maths each week. Mandarin will be the medium of instruction to Chinese lessons and students will be taught to read and write simplified characters, with exposure to traditional characters through lessons in calligraphy, voluntary supplementary reading lessons and a variety of extra-curricular activities.

Wycombe Abbey School Hong Kong wishes their students to set high standards for themselves and therefore has set 12 developmental objectives as a guideline: Collaborative, Adaptable, Confidence, Resilient, Independent, Considerate, Responsible, Intellectually Curious, Digitally Literate, Highly Numerate, Creative and Innovative!
