In our High School, on the basis of the curriculum standards published by the Ministry of Education of the People's Republic of China, we will draw on those curricula of leading senior schools in China and overseas which emphasise a varied and modular approach to education, aiming for both width and depth. In addition to internationally recognised IGCSE and A-Level lessons, we will also offer regular personalised guidance on further study, providing those who aspire to enter the world's top universities not only with effective academic training but also world-leading life skills training, thereby ensuring that our graduates develop great self-confidence and go on to succeed in their university studies, in their job applications and even their future lives.
To prepare pupils academically, socially and emotionally for entry into world-class universities.
The IGCSE course is one of the most important examinations in the UK. It can be compared to the senior high school entrance examination in China. Every year, there are tens of millions of pupils studying IGCSE courses around the world, and their certificates are recognized throughout the world. Every year, British newspapers and media publish the rankings of British private schools based on their IGCSE results. The IGCSE curriculum is one of the reasons why teaching standards are excellent in British private schools. As one of the most established academic courses in the world, the IGCSE is used by various countries and other curriculum systems as a preparation for the final years of secondary education.
After completing their IGCSEs, Wycombe Abbey School Hangzhou students will take A-Levels at the end of their last two years of High School. A-Level courses are similar to IGCSE courses in that they are also national education courses in the UK. The British media also rank private schools in the UK based on A-Level results. As the principal examination taken by British pupils before entering university, A-Levels can be compared to China's college entrance examination. More than 5000 educational institutions around the world use A-Level courses and millions of pupils take the examinations every year. Due to the excellent reputation of A-Levels, both Singapore and Hong Kong directly use A-Levels as a national examination for university entrance. A-Levels have been recognised by 11,000 universities in 160 countries in the world.
