Wycombe Abbey: Preparing Hong Kong’s Children for Success at Secondary School and Beyond


#sponsoredpost Since welcoming its first pupils in 2019, Wycombe Abbey School Hong Kong (WASHK) has gone on to build a strong reputation as one of the SAR’s top primary and preparatory schools. Part of the wider Wycombe Abbey international family, the school offers a first-class, holistic education that draws on the rich heritage and academic excellence of its UK predecessor and lays solid foundations for pupils as they prepare to enter and excel at top secondary schools across the globe.



Secondary expansion


Up until recently, WASHK’s dedicated Secondary School Guidance Programme focused primarily on preparing pupils for independent/boarding schools in the UK, Hong Kong and the wider world. This year, however, the school is set to expand its cohort with the introduction of Years 7 and 8 and has therefore adapted the programme to also cater for pupils who wish to continue their journey into secondary at WASHK’s state-of-the-art Aberdeen campus.


Key to the programme is the personalised approach WASHK takes to pupil support. Led by the school’s headmaster, Howard Tuckett, and a team of expert mentors, pupils and their families are guided through a step-by-step process, tailored specifically to their own unique situations, needs and ambitions.


Together they explore options and create an individualised plan to help pupils transition to their preferred secondary path. For many pupils, this is the point at which they consider boarding school, whether that be at Wycombe Abbey UK or other prestigious independent schools (this year’s pupils have received offers from Wycombe Abbey UK, Cheltenham Ladies’ College, the City of London School for Girls and Rugby School, among others).
