Your Guide to UK Boarding Schools

Planning to send your child to study in the UK? Don’t miss the opportunity to talk to the Education Consultants and Heads and representatives of UK schools at the UK Boarding School Exhibition.

The quality of British education is recognised and respected worldwide. The quality of teaching in small class sizes produces top grades; the academically able are stretched and challenged; support is given to those that need it. Ninety-two percent of pupils in independent schools in the UK progress to higher education, including fifty-six percent to Russell Group universities.

A boarding school education encourages independence, confidence, courtesy, courage, kindness, and compassion from living in a diverse and truly international environment.  Life in a boarding school is excellent preparation for university and employment as it provides many of the non-academic skills that employers are looking for.

Every parent wants to provide the best education possible for their children so that they achieve their potential academically, personally and above all are happy.  A British boarding education provides all of this, plus lots of opportunities in sport, music, art, and drama to develop well rounded young adults prepared for the next step in life.  Support for children who require special educational needs is available in main stream schools with good learning support departments or more specialist schools; these children thrive in the structured environment that a boarding education offers.

Families living in the Middle East choose a UK boarding education to ensure the stability of education if they move frequently, particularly during the two years of GCSE and A-Level or IB and as a stepping stone to university.

Choosing a UK boarding school is a huge emotional and financial decision and the process can be daunting, particularly when you are living thousands of miles away.  As Education Consultants, Anderson Education provides free impartial advice and guidance and help you through the process – from recommending schools to arranging school visits.  The UK Boarding School Exhibition on 8 and 9 February 2019 at Grosvenor House Hotel, Dubai Marina is a good place to start; entry is free, register here.
