IGCSE at our Through-train International Section

In 2005, KCCIS reached its third year as a through-train international school. We had one class each for Years 7, 8 and 9 and it was time to take the first steps towards getting accreditation from the University of London (Pearson Edexcel) and University of Cambridge so that our students would be able to sit for their GCSE / IGCSE examinations. We faced a series of daunting tasks and masses of form filling ensured before our first site inspection could be implemented.

Fortunately, we passed both sets of inspections and received commendations for our security set up to keep confidential examination materials stored. By June 2007, we were ready for our first examinations.

Towards the end of August that year, we received a large envelope from Edexcel containing our results. Out of the thirty entries we had for Mandarin skills, we received thirty passes at the A* level. Science and Mathematics also received similar results and scored particularly high as well. Overall, our pass rate was 99% and things boded well for the future.

We finally cracked the 100% pass rate in 2010. From there, we set ourselves new tasks and targets to meet as a school. Since the registration of our first exams, we have achieved a number of milestones and have come quite long way in establishing our track record and success with the GCSE / IGCSE programme.

Some of these highlights include:

  • The passing of all of our external inspections thus far

  • Achieving a 100% pass rate in multiple years since 2010 and achieving examination results that are consistently above the world average.

  • Achieving outstanding results in a wide range of subjects, in particular Chinese, Science and Mathematics, where 100% of candidates have achieved A* in multiple years.

  • Receiving recognition from Cambridge University for the highest levels and marks in Sociology in 2011, 2015 and 2016.

  • Successfully transitioning into the new (1-9) curriculum and achieving over 90% A*-C / 9-4 grades in 2018

Our school prides itself as “Your Child’s Future Today” and this is a promise that has been delivered consistently and resoundingly since the very beginning. All of our students, parents and teachers have felt tremendous pride for the foundation of excellence that they have and will continue to lay for generations to come.

The most recent exam results and new subjects undertaken are posted on our school website.

We hope for continued success in the years to come.

The IB Diploma Programme at KCCIS

By May 2007 Kiangsu-Chekiang College International Section, part of the through-train international school, was authorised by the IBO to offer the Diploma Programme. The Diploma Programme (DP), is a two-year pre-university course, which has been shown to prepare students well for courses of study at universities.

Our IGCSE classes are a product of the Primary school and the Secondary school, and it can be seen that a continuous flow of academic success, which culminates in our fine DP scores, is the outcome of the hard work carried out in both of the two schools.

Our students have been welcomed by universities worldwide, but more than half of our graduates have been happy to stay in Hong Kong. So our students have shown they can perform well at university level after studying the DP, be it at home or abroad. Therefore our decision taken more than 10 years ago, to apply to be an IBO World School, has been proven to be both wise and visionary.

This initiative to build on the sound foundations of the Primary school, and then to progress through Secondary school has enabled our students to have a degree of continuity and consistency of approach, which is certainly beneficial in enabling our students to move on to university with confidence. Now our system is complete, and students can join us at kindergarten class and stay all the way through to the end of Year 13.

The DP is the terminal qualification of our through-train school continuum. There are signs that it is performing to a very high standard. There are opportunities for improvement in the future, and with a united purpose it is hoped the hard work in the past will have provided a solid foundation on which to build KCIS and KCCIS into one of the outstanding performing World Schools in Hong Kong.
