The Finest English Education
English schools, serving international students with potentialLearn More
Arlington Potential Ltd is an English-registered Company that has formal relationships with several leading schools in England. It focuses on attracting top quality international students worldwide to study in these schools, leverage the superb teaching standards and work for the opportunity to enter one of the many leading universities based in England.
It is a win-win strategy for both the schools and the students. Take China as an example: many Chinese students achieve excellent results, particularly in the sciences and mathematics. However within China there are insufficient places for the large numbers of qualified students, and the chance of entering a top Chinese university is therefore small.
If these students come to study in England in the years before university entrance, follow the local education system after receiving a strong basic education in China, entering leading global universities such as Cambridge, Oxford, London or Edinburgh is not just a dream, but a real possibility. During these critical pre-university years we are ready to help, supporting the family back home and offering a local guardianship role as required. We are flexible.
Consider one school (a partner in Oxfordshire) as example: in year 2015 and 2016, there were 17 Chinese students graduated from this school. Among them, 2 students entered Cambridge Uni; 3 Imperial College; 4 London University; 2 University of Manchester; 1 University of Bristol; 1 University of Bath; 1 University of the Arts London; 1 University of Durham; 1 Courtauld Institute of Art; 1 University of Westminster.
In addition to placing high performing students into excellent English schools, Arlington Potential can provide advice regarding choice of universities, course selection and even career decisions. Guidance regarding access to professional associations, legal services and social integration is available from our experienced team.
In choosing partner schools, we consider the past reputation of the organisation but place emphasis on several other dimensions:
We prefer partner schools that provide a holistic educational experience that stretches the student both academically but also as young adults. Students should be helped to develop and become passionate about their interests, and grow to achieve levels of performance beyond their own expectations. In parallel with A-level study, students may undertake complementary projects that also facilitate personal development. Independent research, rigorous analysis and checking of results, and an ability to think flexibly and reach reasonable conclusions, are traits that are commonly encouraged. Discussion, debate, listening skills and respect for the opinions of others, are essential tools.
We believe in encouraging students and their families, with help from the school, to start early in pondering the life choices they may wish to make, and consider the rich array of options that can be open to a well educated and well qualified young person. While it may sometimes seem too soon to think about university education, aligning A-level subjects with longer-term ambitions is essential and should be discussed with the school as early as possible. We are happy to support this process as part of a continuing guardianship role. Outcomes could include entry into a top university, such as Cambridge, Edinburgh, London, Durham or Oxford, and subsequent access to a chosen profession.
Feel free to contact us at any time. We are dedicated to providing our students with the very finest English education and part of that is making sure that we completely understand your requirements.
