Tips on How to Prepare Your Child for University
It is never too early to prepare for your child’s university journey, and since we at Yew Chung International School of Beijing are now in the latter part of the school year, this means parents and Secondary school students are beginning to ready themselves for the transition from secondary school to university. Many students have already received acceptances from leading universities in Hong Kong and England, many more are still awaiting their results from universities in America and Australia.
UK Summer Programme 2020
Yew Chung International School (Yew Chung) and our sister school have long placed strong emphasis on students’ holistic education. We not only train students in their academic skills, but also place high importance on their character development, so that they can achieve both academic and character excellence. Since 2006, an English learning and cultural centre is established in the United Kingdom for total English language immersion. The first learning centre is located in a traditional English village in Somerset – Sibley’s Barn. In order to further enrich our programme and provide more overseas learning opportunities for our students, a new campus was established in 2016, known as Knowle Hall. It is a newly redecorated Victorian-era country house, built on 15 acres of land in beautiful open parkland, situated close to our Sibley’s Barn Centre. Students engage in cultural exchange with local students through group activities and social services, and enhance their knowledge on school subjects such as Science and Mathematics, Nature and Environmental Protection, and Culture and Arts.
First Place for Our Math Madness Whizzes

Our school community is very proud of this victory, which came after several rounds of knockouts over a six-weeks period, which saw our Maths magicians compete against renowned international schools from around the world; finally going head-to-head with GEMS World Academy in the final round.
Embodying a YCIS Beijing Student
At Yew Chung International School of Beijing we strive for excellence in everything we do, be it from our staff or students. Our Primary School Student Council is one example of how this idea is put into practice. The student council, although there to reinforce the overall wellbeing of students on campus, also serves as a blueprint of how an exemplary YCIS Beijing student should be.
