Wycombe Abbey School Hong Kong opened yesterday and children flooded through the doors for their first day of term. The new co-educational primary school draws on the prestigious academic heritage of Wycombe Abbey UK, one of the highest performing academic schools in Britain.
The new school is headed by Howard Tuckett, a leading educator with 35 years of experience in British Prep School Headship, and a specialist in preparing primary children for entry to the best Secondary schools in the World.
The School's bespoke curriculum is based on the National Curriculum for England with a strong daily Chinese Language Program, and an extended school day which allows for a comprehensive extra-curricular program to develop the ‘whole’ child. This holistic approach to education supports success in the Common Entrance exam and ‘Builds Confidence for Life’, which is the schools’ motto.
