ESF refining curriculum changes

About !100 final-year students will leave English Schools Foundatlon schools this summer and some 90 per cent of them will have studied for an International Baccalaureate Diploma. They arc the second batch of students to complete the m ctnrlculum.

Each year, about 95 per cent of ESP school -leavers go on to universities and colleges. Nearly half am admitted to universities in Britain. Others head to Australia, the US, Canada and elsewhere.

The ESP was established in 19(i7 and manages five secondary schools, nine primary schools and a school for children with special education needs, while its affiliate ESP Educational Services oversees two "all-through" private independent schools and four klndergartens. Any child who applies to an ES!' school may also apply to the private independents Discovery College and Renaissance College.

The ESP has traditionally offered a modern, liberal education based on the national curriculum of England and Wales, and still does so in terms of the GCSE and IGCSE progrmnmes offered in Years 10 and 11. It was decided, however, that a more international focus was

needed for its education system, one that afforded more opportunities for students planning to go to university in countries other than Brit'lin.

About G5 per cent of ESP students arepermanent residents ofvarlous nationalities, including local and overseas Chinese. Others arc [mill Britain, Australia and Bast Asian countries. The ESP is becoming increasingly attractive to the Chinese middle class and is also chosen by many Indian families.

Students of all academic ability levels am admitted to ESP schools, provided they pass a test designed to assess whether they are able 10 learn in English. Students can only apply to Ole designated school for the zone they live in and priority is given to students who speak English as a first or alternative language, but do not speak Chinese mid! or read and write Chinese.

TIm International Baccalaureate Organisation's programmes for primary and secondary students are recognised worldwide. However, U18 1B Diploma is VCly demanding lind does not suit every student. The programme requires students to take six: subjects, three at

higher and three at standard level, follow a tl1801)' of knowledge course, complete an extended essay and take part in a course called "creativity, action and service". The six: mandatory subjects include maths, a science subject, an arts subject and a second language.

ESP secondary schools are also in tile process of developing three vocationally oriented alternative programmes for students who are not suited to the lB curriculum: an Advanced Diploma, an Intermediate Diploma and a Foundntion Diploma.

The Advanced Diploma courses that me already available include a BTEC National Certificate at West Island School, and media and business courses at King George V School. 11m UTEC is also offered by Island School and South Island School.

The Poundatlon Diploma allows students to study III subjects, but ruther than tim slxrequfred for the III Diploma, they can choose five and still gain entry to some tertiary institutions. They can also mix their subjects - for example, taking more humanities subjects rather than maths or science. All ESF primary schools offer tile lB Primary Years Programme.

While he was pleased witl};the first balch ofIB graduates across l\tiP schools last year. Chris Durbin, the E,~I"s secondary adviser, said tlJere,{yere still improvements to be made. i'

"As educators, you're ncv¢;' satisfied.

You're always looking for thlngs to improve. As a fJ rst attempt we are VCly pleased with it. Bill we alway~ look to improve and refine things <IS we go.

"Different schools have d(ITerent things they call improve. I'orexnmple, we need to make sure that studeilts are in 018 light level in mathematicsfor (he JIl Diploma. We didn't get that right the first time round. Every student does maths,"

Durbin said. '

"That's tile big difference from A-levels. When it comes to options, students choose which level they will study. So lf'you're oITto study English literature, then you're best oIT choosi ng maths studies, but if you're doing economics or maths, then yon have to do higher-level maths, which is waynbove A-level standard. So we're working on

DSS schools find middle way on curriculum

In just nine yeurs, Direct Subsidy Scheme schools have established a distinct middle path between the Intemational education offered in the independent sector and the one-size-flts-af approach of government and aided schools.

The 72 schools in the scheme, which are given equivalent funding per student to the average government and aided school but can also charge fees, are allowed freedom til set their own curricuhun, admission rules, language policy and class sizes.

Some leading DSS schools are using this leeway to offer their own brand of international education at a fraction of the price charged by most internatlonal and private independent schools. 11lCY arc setting up programmes leading to the International Buccalaureate Diplomathe predominant qualification in the imlependent sector - alongside the new senior secondary curriculum that is being tolled out across public-sector schools.

Two schools - Creative Secondary Sehoul and Diocesan Boys' School- will be the trallblazers in offering the dual curriculum in the new academic year.

DBS last September launched a pre- J[I programme, a one-year preparatory course limbering students up for the IB

r

SATURDAV. JUNE 12. 2010

Diploma to be launched this September. Porty-one students am currently in tile pre-Ill stream, compared wiUl229 Porm Four students taking the first year of the three-year senior secondary currlculum leading to the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE).

Terence Chang. headmaster ofDBS, said: '''111e 113 curriculum helps nurture students' international outlook and their critical thlnklng by pursuing an inquirybased teaming approach." A total of 41 students had been selected for the m programme from more Ulan 60 candidates, most of whom were hoping to attend university overseas.

"Selection lntervlews were conducted: to see whether an applicant was suitable ' for an JB education," Chang said.

"Applicants had to write an essay explaining what makes them a suitable 1B candidate. lIB the IE puts a lot of emphasis on all-round development, applicants' records in community service and extra-curricular activities were also taken into account."

Annual tuition fees for Form Pour students in the HKDSE and pre-Ill streams are the same- HK$33,OOO. But in Form Five, fees for Ule JB Diploma are HK$S(J,OOO, compared with HK$43,OOO

for the HKDSE. Despite the higher cost, Chang said the tuition fees barely covered the investment the school had made in preparing for the III Diploma.

"We aim to break even after three years," he said. "'11m teacher-student ratio for an IE class is around 1:10. II. biggcr class size will flout IE regulations. We have to employ extra staff, most of whom arc coming from abroad, who are IE curriculum specialists."

Nicholas Lam Inn-hay, 1ll, a DBS Po rill Pour pre-Hl student, said he was impressed with the IE curriculum.

"Instead offollowing textbook instructions to the letter, the teachers encourage us to test our own hypotheses in science subjects," he said.

"For example, when doing a lab project, I was asked in the past to do experiments to prove the theories spelled out in books. Now, I don't have to follow what tile book says, and I set my own hypotheses WId conduct experiments to bear them out. Even though my premise Illay turn out to be wrong in tile end, I learn a lot from the process."

While DDS students have to opt for the pre-Ill or the HKDSE progranune after Form Three, Creative Secondary School in Tseung Kwan 0 has gone a step

further, by incorporating the lB into tile local curricnlum.

I ts I B Middle Years Programme (M Yl') is embedded in the structure {if the local curriculum.In the flrst year of the new senior secondary curriculum.Form Pour students complete the MYP While also pursuing the first year of the l\i'cal diploma. In the second year, &tudents' paths diverge, with some taking tile IE Diploma and others the HKDSI3.

Fees for the JB Diploma pl:9'gmmme are IlK$7B,OOO a year, about qik third more Ulan tile HKDSE, at HKf~9,OOO.

Principal Cheung Slu-ming'sald the overlapping of tile clinic lila iti~llbjects such as English, Chinesc and hlatlls made the special arrangemeritfeasible,

The lB Diploma and HKD?,ll complemented each other in 'ehriching students' learning experience'jmd schools overseas commonly ollered the IE alongside another qualification,

"Many state education systems across the world welcome Ule presence of IB programmes within their schools. Hong Kong is but the latest to join this world

trend," Cheung said. .
