BE TOP SCHOOLS

BE launched the BE Top Schools in 2015, inviting a number of schools to visit China to interview potential applicants. The event has grown in terms of school participants and student numbers considerably since its first year. In 2018, 340 children participated in BE Top Schools in Beijing and Shanghai, travelling from all over China.

The purpose of BE Top Schools was to address some key issues which exist in the Mainland China market.

Lack of invigilation of tests by most agents in China, including UKiset which allows significant opportunity for cheating.

This means sometimes the students who are accepted to certain schools are incredibly mismatched in terms of academic level or English ability on arrival in the UK.

Lack of opportunity for schools to get to know their ML China students as individuals rather than just test scores.

Not all students have the opportunity or time to visit schools in the UK and this means that on occasion, students who are packed with potential, talents or personality are overlooked.

Assurance that schools get access to the very best students.

Currently some students are misled into unsuitable schools where, whilst they will perform, their strengths and intelligence will not necessarily be challenged.

WHAT DO PREVIOUS PARTICIPANTS SAY ABOUT BE TOP SCHOOLS?

Niall Hamilton Senior Admissions Tutor

BE provided an extraordinary service. In four days, I interviewed many bright boys and girls who were keen to board, and it was clear that they had been selected with great care. All the practicalities of the trip were dealt with so efficiently and we were very well looked after indeed. The trip was a revelation and really worthwhile.

Dr Hilary Laver Director of Admissions

We have always found BE Top Schools to be highly professional affairs which enable excellent communication with families considering boarding in the UK for their children. The organisation and coordination is first rate and BE representatives pay close attention to the individual needs of individual families, and to admissions staff from visiting schools.

BE Top Schools is the first event we ink in to the Admissions calendar each academic year, because it allows us to recruit strong candidates who have been well-advised about what sort of British school would suit them, and who we know will be well supported through the application process and beyond. The BE Top schools events themselves are very well organised, the information provided about candidates detailed and helpful, and the time efficiently used to ensure that we meet the maximum number of potential pupils in the short time we are there. Not only that, but the BE staff are very good company, which makes the trip a pleasurable experience.

The annual BE Top Schools in September has proved most worthwhile for Downe House. It gives us an opportunity to meet with a range of potential pupils and their parents at various stages of the admissions process. Working alongside other schools in such a well organised event, provides us with excellent opportunities to share good practice with likeminded colleagues as well as learn more about the education marketplace in China.
