Mr Paul Holyome Weekly Update 27/11/2015

27 November 2015

A big thank you to the many parents who attended our very first evening seminar comparing the different curriculum and qualifications. We have received some excellent feedback on the evening and many found the evening thought provoking and informative. On the back of the success of the evening I have include below some additional information to add to the discussion around this issue:

Cambridge University has been leading examination delivery for over 150 years and the International A Level programme that we deliver here to our students has now been in existence for 50 years. The international A Level programme is a perfect next step for students on completion of their IGCSE qualifications. 10,000 schools in over 160 countries are now delivering a Cambridge International Examination qualification.

The international A level is becoming increasingly popular in Britain and worldwide. In 2014, 1,600 school in 125 countries including very large number of students in India, China, the US, Pakistan, New Zealand, Malaysia and Singapore were already delivering International A Level examinations. Many of these students who achieve good grades go on to secure places at the top universities around the world.  At the same time the regional director of Cambridge International Examinations, has in recent times said that the worldwide take up of the International A level has doubled in the previous five years. Such is the rigour and integrity of the qualification that some of the top independent fee paying schools around the world are delivering this qualification.  This all bodes well for BVIS as we continue to deliver qualifications that are internationally recognised, are robust and allow our students to access the top universities and colleges worldwide.

Next week we have sixty seven senior leaders from across South East Asia visiting our school as we play host to the Nord Anglia Senior Leaders Regional Conference. This is another great opportunity for us to showcase our school and we are looking forward to welcoming our colleagues.

Finally, a reminder that our next evening seminar will be taking place on Thursday 10th December. The topic being presented will be concerning age-appropriate skills for toddlers. We hope to see many of you there. Please  pre-register for your place here
