A LEVEL TWINNING PROGRAMME

HONSBRIDGE ACADEMY IN PARTNERSHIP
WITH PEMBROKESHIRE COLLEGE, UK

Giving you the solution to gaining
an international education

PRINCIPAL’S WELCOME

Let me wish you a warm welcome to Honsbridge, a British curriculum academy for students in Malaysia. Our goal at Honsbridge is a simple one –  to offer all our Students the best possible preparation for their future educational careers.

The Honsbridge IGCSE/O Level Tuition is designed for students who believe in choosing their own subjects; in building a strong foundation in their command of English to excel in their academic progression; to enable the students to achieve the high grades that they truly deserve; and last but not the least students have the option to sit their examination in June or Nov.

For a very long time, the Education Ministry of Malaysia has recognised the importance of English language in higher education. Hence, the UPSR and SPM examinations have now included English as the written scripts in Maths and Science examinations. This is a fine example of meeting the changing needs of students today.

GCSE, IGCSE and GCE O Level/Cambridge International O Level are UK qualifications equivalent to SPM qualifications. For further information on these qualifications, please look it up on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GCSE .These courses are taught in the English language as such the examinations use the English scripts only. We can consider GCSE, IGCSE and GCE O level as very valuable qualifications, because they are recognised worldwide as the basic admission requirement to higher education.

As part of my continuous quest for learning, my education and career pathways have taken me abroad besides my home, Malaysia. Therefore, I can share with you the various providers of these valuable educations.

  1. In UK, GCSE is available with several examination boards. e.g. Edexcel, OCR and AQA.
  2. In Singapore secondary schools, private schools and tuition centres, GCE O level is available with Cambridge International Examination (CIE) board.
  3. In Malaysia international schools e.g. Garden International School, Alice Smith International School and several others, IGCSE and GCE O level are available with CIE board or Edexcel.

In Malaysia, the majority of students follow the national education curriculum, leading to higher education. There are some students whose parents can afford the very high school fees and living expenses at the above mentioned schools, these students shall follow the international education curriculum. I am one of many who have studied GCE O levels in Singapore, Cedar Girls’ Secondary School. When I look back, I always thank my parents who have provided me an education that has improved my life learning skills.

Our students benefit not only from outstanding academic tuition, but also from a nurturing environment which gives them the time and space to develop as individuals and to prepare themselves for the challenges ahead.

Our motto “Building Bridges, Exceeding Expectations” illustrates the Honsbridge ethos and our desire to equip our students with the skills they need to be successful in whatever they choose to do.

I hope to have the opportunity to welcome you and your child to Honsbridge in the future. If you have questions or would like to visit Honsbridge, please contact our team.

Head of Honsbridge (2008 to present)

OUR MISSION

TO GIVE STUDENTS OF ALL BACKGROUND A CHANCE TO BE THEIR FRIEND, MENTOR & TEACHER. TO EMPOWER THEM TO BE THE BEST THEY CAN BE. TOGETHER WITH HONSBRIDGE, WE BELIEVE IN NEW BEGINNINGS.

HONSBRIDGE, LIVING, BREATHING MALAYSIA

Honsbridge is a thriving independent academy in the heart of Petaling Jaya. Since our foundation in 2008, an outstanding record of success has been achieved. This has been demonstrated by our strong O-Level/ IGCSE results of our graduates and their academic progression on entering the competitive pre-degree courses locally and abroad.

We provide an academically challenging environment in which all our students can achieve their potential. Students are treated as young adults and expected to adopt a mature and responsible attitude to their studies. Approachable tutors, small classes, course specific notes and supplementary supervised prep have maximised student achievement.

During their time at Honsbridge, students develop time-management skills along with sophisticated learning and study techniques. Our programme of weekly homework and exam-focused classes rapidly improves self-confidence. Each is carefully monitored and difficulties are rapidly and sympathetically addressed through our academic and pastoral support.

 

We are committed to helping each student to achieve the very best academic standards. This is done through rigorous yet informal teaching, frequent tests with in-depth feedback and by the use of expert tutors.

Great care is taken in the selection of our tutors; prerequisites include passion for teaching and expertise in their subject, along with first-class communication skills. Honsbridge tutors are driven by examination success and are fully conversant with the requirements of the subject specifications.

Our students tell us that their time at Honsbridge was hard work but was also the most rewarding period that they have spent in secondary education.

Honsbridge is an educational initiative to help both local and international students who want to obtain a qualification alternative to SPM. We aspire to provide quality and affordable IGCSE/O levels tuitions to students who meet the basic requirements.

To help you choose a successful higher education, we provide all higher education placement counseling and assistance in scholarship applications.

Our Three Commitments

  • To nurture students to their fullest academic potential through effective teaching.
  • To equip students with critical thinking skills, to be creative, innovative and independent learners.
  • To provide students counselling and placement opportunities for their higher education. Through counseling, students may develop their personal and educational aspirations.

Finally, we have bounds of energy to drive eco-friendly initiatives to do our part for the environment and the next generation.

ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE

What makes learning at Honsbridge unique and effective is the combination of:

  • Highly qualified academics are masters of their own craft and in delivering all lessons.
  • Small class sizes (maximum 16 students) ensure that teachers are able to focus their time and attention on individual students.
  • Dedicated supervised study and preparatory lessons for all students. The lessons promote peer learning and teachers help the students to learn independently.
  • Students who come to us from many different parts of the world. This diverse mix of nationalities ensures that all students are required to use their English skills to communicate.

This means that our students will have the best possible preparation for their examination, whilst making lifelong friendships with other pupils from around the world.
