Wycombe Abbey is internationally recognised as a world leader in education, at the very top of the UK's academic league tables, combining a reputation for academic excellence with a resolutely holistic approach that focuses on the whole child.
Wycombe Abbey School Hong Kong is a co-educational primary school. Their ethos is rooted in a simple principle that a holistic education, which incorporates a diverse extra-curricular program, will foster the skills required to succeed, including creatively, emotional intelligence, teamwork, and leadership.
The school’s 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. The school’s bespoke curriculum is based on the National Curriculum for England with the Common Entrance requirements in mind, ensuring that pupils are prepared for the next steps in their lives and schooling. Students have the choice to continue their education locally or globally.
In recognition of the extraordinary city, which is their home, their bi-cultural education focuses on fluency in English and Chinese. Chinese is taught as a discrete subject in every year group, with a similar number of lessons allocated to English each week.
The school promotes a longer day to facilitate additional study and extra-curricular enrichment, so pupils are encouraged to stay for extra-curricular activities, including calligraphy, indoor climbing, robotics, cooking, dance, swimming, football, etc. Students also have the option to sign up for Homework Club or language support classes.
The school offers daily School Tours during term time at their Tin Wan Campus so prospective parents and pupils can experience the school in operation. Tours are led by their Headmaster Howard Tuckett, or a senior member of staff, who will be happy to answer questions.
Parents will have the opportunity to meet and speak to their Founding Headmaster, Howard Tuckett, who has over 35 years of experience as an educational leader. He is a primary specialist that had taken on roles such as teacher, housemaster, sports coach, and Headmaster. He has 19 years of Headship at 2 top UK Prep Schools and mentored 14 Prep School Heads in the United Learning Group.
