Ardingly College Introduction

廣泛升學課程 特設預備課程助打好根基

Ardingly College offers a wide range of academic programs, including the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum alongside traditional A-Level courses. This allows students to benefit from a broader educational experience. Recognizing the transition challenges faced by international students coming from the Hong Kong education system, Ardingly has introduced a Pre-IB course. This one-year program aims to enhance students' English proficiency and strengthen their scientific knowledge, ensuring a smooth transition to the IB or A-Level curriculum. In 2020, 31% of IB students from Ardingly successfully gained admission to universities outside the UK, including prestigious institutions in the United States, while over 80% of the class entered universities within The Russell Group.
