Whitgift School is a top all boys boarding school with a very advantageous location in London (Zone 5). With the options of GCE A-levels and International Baccalaureate (IB) in sixth form, Whitgift School enjoys a very good reputation in academic work and music and has in the past (2008-2011) been listed as one of the best 50 schools in the UK, out of 3000 schools. In recent years, however, Whitgift School has refused to be included in league tables published by newspapers in the UK – a move employed by many top independent schools to avoid parents paying too much attention on public exam results and overlooking other important aspects of education. That doesn’t mean that Whitgift School has lowered its standard on academic work though. In 2018, the A*-B rate in GCE A-levels remains an impressive 84%. In International Baccalaureate (IB) exams, the average score is 38, out of the 45 full marks – results that would have put the School in top positions in any league tables.

In Music, Whitgift School is famous for the orchestra, which collaborated with the The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in London in 2011 and has performed in many other countries including Japan, Spain, German and more.

Since 2013, Whitgift School has expanded its boarding provision and can now provide more than 100 boarding places – which still does not satisfy the demand, making competition for places extremely fierce. Students are advised to apply two to three years in advance.

Location: British United

Undergraduate Year One in Top 30 UK universities normally require 544 to 555 in HKDSE, with subject-specific requirement depending on your choices of programmes.

Students aiming for top universities and highly-competitive subjects such as medicine and actuarial sciences, however, will benefit from the 1-Year A-levels which also allows them to apply to universities in Hong Kong through the Non-Jupas route.

In the seminar, our education consultants will introduce these four options for HKDSE students. Content includes university options, subject options, entry requirements, plus the procedures and important dates of UCAS.

Content Highlights

  • How does UCAS work? What are the important dates?
  • How to make best use of the five application quotas in your UCAS application?
  • Is it possible to have the sixth and the seventh quota?
  • Tips on writing a winning personal statement.

Abingdon School is a top UK boys’ boarding school in Oxfordshire where students are not only good in academic, but also in sports and the arts. With its strict admission criteria, the school usually only considers applications of Hong Kong elite school students.

Like many top independent schools, Abingdon School has refused to be included in school league tables, to avoid parents paying too much attention on public exam results and overlooking other important aspects of education. The school continues to perform exceptionally well in GCE A-levels that in the past ten years (2009-2018) A*-B rates were over 83%. In 2016, Abingdon School saw twelve of its graduates continue their education in Oxbridge, while the majority went to top universities such as Durham, Exeter, Bristol, Imperial College, UCL, etc.

Whitgift School is a top all boys boarding school with a very advantageous location in London (Zone 5). With the options of GCE A-levels and International Baccalaureate (IB) in sixth form, Whitgift School enjoys a very good reputation in academic work and music and has in the past (2008-2011) been listed as one of the best 50 schools in the UK, out of 3000 schools. In recent years, however, Whitgift School has refused to be included in league tables published by newspapers in the UK – a move employed by many top independent schools to avoid parents paying too much attention on public exam results and overlooking other important aspects of education. That doesn’t mean that Whitgift School has lowered its standard on academic work though. In 2018, the A*-B rate in GCE A-levels remains an impressive 84%. In International Baccalaureate (IB) exams, the average score is 38, out of the 45 full marks – results that would have put the School in top positions in any league tables.

In Music, Whitgift School is famous for the orchestra, which collaborated with the The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in London in 2011 and has performed in many other countries including Japan, Spain, German and more.

Since 2013, Whitgift School has expanded its boarding provision and can now provide more than 100 boarding places – which still does not satisfy the demand, making competition for places extremely fierce. Students are advised to apply two to three years in advance.
