YCYW is an unrivalled network of schools across 10 international cities. All YCYW schools operate under the same educational mission and share a similar pedagogy. We understand families sometimes need to be relocated and thus internal transfers within schools have been made easier. Students may continue to receive outstanding education at any of our YCYW schools.
YCYW recruits and retains qualified and passionate teachers who always have the opportunity to upskill and remain abreast of global trends through professional development workshops. YCYW is proud to have a group of dedicated and long service academic staff, ensuring consistent and high quality teaching. Among the wonderful aspects of the YCYW Schools Network are its regular cross-school events that promote constructive collaboration. Students gain invaluable experience and grow their circle of friends.
Super-Curricular Programme (SCP) transcend the boundaries of conventional education, empowering students to thrive in an ever-evolving world. The Programme offers a wide range of masterclasses, integrated work-study projects and advanced immersive learning projects. These programmes play a crucial role in extending and enhancing students' learning horizons, as universities now consider not only the depth, but also the breadth of their knowledge and their ability to think in creative and innovative ways. Therefore, SCPs bear substantial value in preparing students for future academic pursuits and professional success. A key arm of the SCPs, “Seeds for the Future”, is a new initiative where we partner with esteemed higher education institutes and external experts engaged in cutting-edge research to develop programmes from Early Childhood Education all the way up to Upper Secondary. By learning from researchers and industry experts, our students gain exposure to the latest advancements and emerging disciplines, enabling them to stay ahead and embrace a future filled with innovation and possibilities.
We understand that families sometimes need to relocate, and have thus made internal transfers within our schools easier, We offer the “Internal Transfer Loyalty Programme” to thank our existing families for their unwavering support of our education pedagogy and teaching approach. The Programme offers a 20 percent discount on the tuition fees for the YCYW school to which your child will be transferring for a period of up to three years. This special plan is applicable to all current families who have been with us for more than two years, and intend to relocate to another city where our network has schools, and want to arrange for their children to continue studying at YCYW schools.
The YCYW Education Network has schools in major cities in the Chinese mainland, as well as in the Hong Kong SAR and US. Our families will be able to take advantage of this internal transfer option among our network schools to ensure an uninterrupted quality and holistic education for our existing students.

Complementing our Super-Curricular Programme (SCP), YCYW Meta enhances learning pathways, embracing collaborative and hybrid learning experiences to broaden horizons and unlock the full potential of YCYW students. By seamlessly integrating realworld projects into our existing IGCSE, IB and A Levels subjects, we enrich their educational journey. The programme will introduce new subjects like philosophy and ethics taught in new ways to make learning enhanced and accessible across multiple schools, providing our students with diverse and enriching educational experiences. This exciting vision also includes opportunities for students to travel between our network schools, engaging in specialised onsite learning experiences and field trips, fostering a spirit of exploration and discovery.
A. Creative Arts
Art plays a significant role in fostering the holistic development of our students across Yew Chung and Yew Wah schools.

By engaging in creative workshops and interactions with seasoned artists and musicians, students are empowered to explore and enhance their technical skills with expert guidance.
B. Music Education

C. Physical & Health Education
Physical Education plays a pivotal role in our holistic education approach at YCYW, emphasising the cultivation of the whole person. We firmly believe that nurturing a healthy body and mind is crucial in preparing our young people to face the challenges of modern society. Through a wide array of sports programmes, we strive to provide personalised opportunities that cater to the unique abilities of each student, enabling them to excel and unlock their full potential. By participating in our team sports activities, students not only bolster their physical well-being but also facilitate social growth and forge strong bonds with their teammates. YCYW remains committed to cultivating an environment where students can thrive physically, mentally, and socially, empowering them to embrace their fulfilling lives in the times to come.
