Boarding Schools in the UK

One of the ways to maximize your child’s chances of getting into a top university in the UK is to enrol them in a boarding school there – the country has some of the best in the world, and some of them take as many as 80% of their students to university every year. These schools provide a wide curriculum which is taught by highly qualified teachers. The support staff in these schools is also well trained, and your child will have adults watching over them all the time.

It is however important to prepare well for the transition into boarding school. Make sure that your child is involved in the decision as well as the choice of school – if you don’t the move away from home will be harder. You should make sure that you buy and pack everything that is needed well ahead of time. It should all be labelled, and your child should make a list of everything they will take to school so that they can keep track of it.

It is very important to talk to your child about what boarding school will be like. Reassure them that although they will be away from home there will be adults watching over them at all times. Discuss how they can overcome any challenges that they come across. Make sure that they are able to get in touch with you, especially in the first few weeks when they may be homesick. It is important for your child to know who they can talk to in school in case they have a problem.

Enrolling your child in the Cambridge Centre for Sixth Form Studies is one way to make sure that they will not only get high grades, but that they will also receive excellent care. The school has a wide curriculum and students from around the world.
