To Board Or Not To Board?

This is a difficult decision for most parents, Harry Potter inspired children and many are keen to experience the fun and excitement of boarding school.

Of the 73,000 children currently boarding at schools in Britain, the vast majority are there because they want to be, for many it was their idea and they were involved with the decision making.

The environment of a UK Boarding School is motivating, nurturing, caring and aims to give each child the opportunities to develop their personal talents to the full and achieve their academic potential.  The wide range of activities and experiences give boarders the opportunity to develop life skills and interests beyond the academic curriculum. 

Preparation and planning is key to ensuring a successful boarding school placement. We all have access to the internet, research can of course be confusing, there is a lot of choice, they all look wonderful and families often do not know where to start. Talking to an education specialist for help and advice is a good starting point.

Short listing and visiting three or four schools, is a very important part of the process and a deciding factor in selecting the right school for your child. 

The Education Consultants at Anderson Education have visited over 350 UK boarding schools and offer free help and advice to families; “this first-hand knowledge enables us to identify what is special and unique about each school and match this with the needs of each child.  The ease and convenience of our special educational service aims to make the search for the best school a stress free experience”. 

Visit the UK Boarding School Exhibition, Grosvenor House Hotel, Dubai Marina on Friday 8 February and Saturday 9 February to talk to heads and representatives of up to 25 UK boarding schools.
