UK boarding schools offer excellent care and security in a home from home and nurturing environment; this is especially important when parents are living overseas. The structure of pastoral care will vary slightly in each school, however, most students will be cared for in the boarding house by a house parent, matron and residential tutors; they will have an academic tutor who will monitor their academic progress. Most boarding schools belong to the Independent Schools Council (ISC) and the Boarding Schools’ Association (BSA); ISC-member schools are subject to an inspection by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI), which examines academic standards and teaching, the quality of learning, the behaviour of pupils, the curricular and extra-curricular activities, school buildings and resources, and management of the school.
Involve your child in the search for a boarding school that will suit their academic abilities and talents, support their needs, personality and long term goals. The best school for a child is not necessarily the most academic, children learn best in an environment where they are happy and can grow in confidence and achieve their dreams.
