From the moment students arrive at Bishopstrow, they are immersed and integrated into British life and culture. Throughout their stay, which lasts at least one term and up to a year, they receive intensive preparation for entry into their chosen British boarding school or a return to their home country with improved English skills. The College also offers a 1 Year IGCSE/Pre-IB Programme providing international students with access to Sixth Form at selected British boarding schools and an Academic Summer Programme

    A Day in the Life of…. What students say about Bishopstrow

    “Bishopstrow College helped me a great deal academically, for both entry into Dulwich College and my studies later on. The College prepared me for interviews (with potential destination schools) and provided me with past entrance exam papers. I was allowed to move up to the IGCSE group and this helped me build a foundation in Science subjects, which I had not studied previously in China.” HAOXIN (ANDY)

    “Bishopstrow College helped me prepare academically for entry into Highfield School and ultimately, Winchester College. Before I came to Bishopstrow, I had limited English language skills and was unable to access any of the top schools in the UK. Now, I am studying at one of the most prestigious schools in the world. Bishopstrow College was the first of many steps required to gain entry into Winchester College.” STEPAN

    “Bishopstrow College helped me prepare for entry into Kingswood School, by providing exposure to a wide range of subjects, including Music, Drama and PE. The College also helped me prepare for boarding school life. I was able to get familiar with being in a boarding school, become more organised and improve my written and spoken English.” JAH

    “Bishopstrow College was known to all of the boarding schools that I visited before moving to the UK. It was recommended on the basis of providing a very good preparation for boarding.” RUDOLF

    “Bishopstrow College provided Ayaka with a good start that successfully led to her studying at The Dragon School with great confidence. She is showing great progress and enjoying her studies and life at The Dragon School. Mr and Mrs Nakamura wanted to express their appreciation. Thank you again. We wish you and the school a prosperous future.” AYAKA’s Agent
