Sole Agency:

Due to our better understanding of the Hong Kong education system by knowing how to differentiate higher quality students from their school report (particularly those in chinese language) as well as our well-established relationship with Skegness Grammar School, we were therefore appointed by the school in early 2007 as their sole agent to recruit the bright students in Hong Kong and Macao.While upon successful entry to the school, we will naturally become the legal guardians of the children until they finish their study in Skegness Grammar School.
