Welcome Back

It’s been a beautiful first week back at BWYA, with a lot going on for our new and old students alike. Monday 19th was a particularly joyful day for our youngest learnersIn total we have 81 new students in our K-Classes. Our primary school has some exciting new plans this year, particularly with Science and Drama classes, we’ll be sure to keep you up to date with the latest updates! 

In addition, the new club season will soon be kicking off with the Primary and Secondary School club fairs. With applications still coming in for both teacher and student led clubs, we’re anticipating up to 100 clubs to be present at the fairs. For more information, please click here. 

As well as this, we are also very excited to be able to announce our Class of 2019 University Acceptance list. With excellent IB results, averaging over 35 points, and Outstanding Student Award winner Flora Tian receiving a perfect score of 45 (one of only 213 students worldwide), our students have been accepted by a plethora or excellent universities. 


The IGCSE results received this week were also equally encouraging – with over half in the A* – B category, and a third As and A*s. A huge congratulations again to all of our students, and indeed the whole BWYA community. 

Now celebrating our 19th year of education, the strength of our teaching faculty, determination of our student body, and excellent track record are clear for all to see. We’re looking forward to seeing what we can achieve this year!
