The Wycombe Abbey School curriculum has been specifically designed to provide primary aged children with an approach to teaching and learning that combines the best from the British and Hong Kong primary education systems, ensuring that our pupils are ideally prepared for the next steps in their schooling. All our pupils enjoy an outstanding primary school experience during the years that they are with us at Wycombe Abbey School Hong Kong.
Our pupils develop total fluency in English and access a curriculum which is built around the core components of the internationally renowned National Curriculum for England and Wales. At the same time, we ensure that our pupils have a firm grounding in the Chinese language and culture through our exceptional Chinese curriculum.
Chinese is taught as a discrete subject in every year group, with the same number of lessons allocated to Chinese, English and Maths each week. Putonghua is the medium of instruction for all Chinese lessons and our pupils are taught primarily to read and write simplified characters, with exposure to traditional characters through lessons in calligraphy, voluntary supplementary reading lessons and a variety of extra-curricular activities.
We emphasize our commitment to a broad education including 14 Primary Subjects and learning outside of conventional classroom settings – Drama, Music, Art, Science, Physical Education, iSTEAM and a wide range of carefully selected extracurricular enrichment activities to widen our pupils’ curiosity and interests.
Wycombe Abbey School is focused on preparing children to be confident, happy, responsible, highly skilled and globally mobile. Our teaching methods, experience and heritage enable us to offer an education for each individual pupil that balances academic rigor with an integrated focus on mental and physical well-being. Providing our pupils with an immersive academic environment encouraging critical thinking through project-based applications, we work on the belief that well-balanced and confident pupils prove to enjoy successful careers in later life.
