Our regional coordinator is also a lead tutor at this centre. Our tutors are specialised in Maths and Science.

We will continue to work with the parents and students in the new academic year. 

Huge success in getting offers from Eton College,

Winchester College, Kings Edward, St Swithun’s and The Kings

Another year of success in 2020!  95% of our young students got into elite schools which have been always oversubscribed and difficult to get in.  However, our regional coordinator and our top tutors have strived the best to help our students and teach them the required knowledge.  As a consequence, they did exceptionally well in their interviews, entrance exams or ISEB examinations.

Online Tutoring for prospective students
for academic year 2020 to 2021

We have seen a rise of Online Tutoring becomes the favoured option for students in Hong Kong and China. Because of the pandemic, many parents had decided to defer their ideas to send children abroad these two years. However, they are still hoping to have us support the child's learning and help them develop their skills with the support from our experienced tutors. This will not only help them have access to the British curriculum, well prepared for the fundamentals elements and also understand the pedology in UK.

 

The core subject for the secondary schools are English, Mathematics and Sciences, therefore the students can benefit from engaging in interactive lessons. There are a number of online mediums and platforms we would be using such as Zoom, and File sharing website Dropbox and Google Drive. These also help students build up the ICT skills and stay organised with tutors.

We had a big success in 2019-2020 Academic Year

Many of our other students performed well in the entrance exams and interviews at elite schools.

 

The last few terms were difficult indeed for everyone because of the global pandemic of Covid-19. We strived our best to assist the students and parents. For those students who wanted to return home overseas, we had arranged transportation for them to arrive the airport safely. We also followed up to ensure that they could carry on with the school curriculum online to produce work of great quality. For those who wanted to stay with their host families, they adapted to the lockdown. All of our students were able to study online and finish their reports or dissertations. 

GCSE & A-level Result Days in Academic Year 2019/2020

We want to congratulate all the A-level students who have worked very hard in the unprecedented difficult circumstances due to Covid-19. Most of them can get into their Firm Choice (1st choice of university). However, a few students felt their teachers' predicted grades were downgraded.

 

We as a company are working incredibly hard with the colleges to support the students to appeal or sit the examinations in the autumn of 2020 and support them for an adjustment in UCAS applications. 

 

Our group of GCSE students have been awarded with good grades and are looking forward to moving on entering Sixth forms/ colleges to study A-levels.
