Why Is Britannia Gateway needed?

In Hong Kong and across Asia, we often tend to think that education means just one thing – excellent grades. However, internationally, educators hold a slightly different perspective.

In the UK, when assessing prospective students, the best schools and universities do not just want a strong academic record; they also want to see pupils who are:

Well-Rounded And Well-Read

Able To Talk Intelligently In Interviews

At Britannia Gateway, we help students to excel in their exams; but more importantly, we prepare them for the expectations of admissions departments from a culture slightly different to our own.

Chan – Year 10
Thanks to Britannia’s team, especially Carson, for guiding us through school selection. Our son excelled at Bede’s for 2 years, made new friends, and integrated into the local culture. Thanks to Bede’s for teaching according to his aptitude and taking care of him. The school impressed us most by arranging a teacher to accompany students returning to Hong Kong during the pandemic.
Vallerie, Y11
Teachers at this school are caring and prioritize communication with students. The campus is nice and encourages trying new things like drama, STEM, and sports. Small class sizes fosters close relationships with classmates, but social events are also a great way to make new friends.
Tatiana – Y7
Loved my time at Bromsgrove School! Favorite moments were spent with friends and learning new things. Disliked sports, but gap teachers were encouraging and helpful. Always felt safe around friends and teachers. Delicious food and fun weekend trips.
Ben – Year 10
Bloxham School
I joined Bloxham School in 2020, recommended by Britannia. Despite the pandemic, their tight-knit community helped me adapt quickly to boarding life. After two years, I feel welcomed by teachers and classmates. Public events like MUN offered valuable skills and opportunities, including speaking at the Oxford Union. I recommend Bloxham for students seeking a friendly community near Oxford.
Hayden and Charlotte
Box Hill School
Hayden and Charlotte adjust to the new school and enjoy school life. The school is caring towards newcomers, with kind teachers and opportunities for trying new things. Despite weaker academics, they’re interested in learning new subjects like Spanish and French.
Victor Leung
Sedbergh School
I love living in a Boarding House. The House Master is very nice and helpful, the food is very tasty and when I have a problem with my homework, I can just ask someone next door or my roommate. At Sedbergh there is a lot of space to play rugby and basketball, something which there isn’t in Hong Kong. We also have lessons outside which is something I never experienced in Hong Kong.
