An education begins in the classroom, but does not end there.
The pursuit of academic excellence is at the core of what we do. Teaching is about passion, communication and, above all, a love of one's subject. An insight into the young mind also helps. Learning is not just about the induction of knowledge, but about learning how to learn. A good lesson is about imparting enthusiasm and arming children with the tools to teach themselves. And all this is rather crudely but vitally measured by exams and grades.
Our son has been at King William’s College for two years and has settled in very well with the full support of the boarding staff and teachers, who have demonstrated great kindness and caring. The highly disciplined, but dynamic education system has helped our 15 year old son to adapt well and his confidence has noticeably improved in a short space of time. What's especially pleasing is that not only does the College have an excellent calibre of teaching staff and a strong academic curriculum, but we have been surprised and delighted to discover their excellent music achievements! With such great experience, our second son will also join KWC starting at Lower 5, to have a well rounded education. We cannot be more pleased with our decision to send our sons here all the way from Hong Kong!M5 Overseas Parent
