Are schools in the UK any good?

YES! The UK is home to some of the finest Boarding schools and schools as a whole in the world. Families from across the world send their children to benefit from this quality of education and experience with around 30,000 international school students in the UK. The UK system has a simple break down which we go into some detail regarding but in a nut shell children attend school from the age of 5-16, the first half of which they go to primary school and the second half they go secondary school. With hundreds of different options, there is certainly a perfect match for your Childs future path. Schools here provide an unmatched experience.

Will my child be fine to study alone there?

Boarding schools in the UK offer at extensive number of resources and staff to tend to your child education and affairs, but its not just about the education as they also try to insure every student feels as much as they can at home as possible and happy with their boarding school life. They have several members of staff all responsible for different areas and the schools themselves offer many activities outside of the main curriculum so that children are engaged and pursuing what they wish such as just about every sport and musical instrument, there is certainly no limitation on creativity. There are also many guardianship programmes available from top regulated companies in the UK, the role of the guardian being tending to all the child’s affairs, whether it’s transporting him to an his or her extra curricular activities or relaying grades and progress back to the child’s parents. Of course if your child is sent to study at a school that is not a boarding school they will need a guardian with them in the. UK.

What is the structure of schooling in the UK ?

Whether the children attend boarding schools or normal schools the general layout in the UK is as previously stated rather straight forward. In primary school which are years 1-6 and for children between ages of 5-11, children will begin their academic journeys with fun and creativity whilst obtaining the very basics of maths science and English. Having finished their primary education they will then go to secondary school in year 7 and get a more in depth look at the core subjects. However now more than before the children get a better opportunity to explore different fields and areas such as the humanities, new sports and the arts. Secondary school as a whole is the best opportunity where kids begin to understand their own hobbies and interest further and start to understand if they wish to study law or become a graphic designer, go into theatre or study mathematics or to pursue a future in a rugby academy or to leave school when they can and dive right into the working world. 

In the final two years of secondary education, years 10 and 11 students begin to study as part of their GCSE which is the general certificate of secondary education.

During this time students study between 9 and 12 subjects, some of which are mandatory such as the core subjects such as English, Maths, humanities and the sciences and the rest being subjects the students themselves get to choose. Having finished their exams they obtain their GCSE certificates which they can use for the next steps of their journeys.
