At first glance it seems that choosing a school for your child is simple – you pick one that is high in the ratings, pay the fees, and the job is done. Unfortunately, it is not that easy.
The first thing you need to remember is to register your child early. Competition for places is very high, and if you want to get into a popular school you should start at least 2-4 years in advance.
The educational system in the UK is split into 4 key stages, between which students often move from one school to another. One of these milestones is when the student reaches the age of 11 or 13 years, and moves from the junior to senior school. Next milestone is when the student turns 16 (A Levels – a 2-year course of pre-university education). When you plan your child’s education, it is worth remembering about these stages.
In order to have a competitive advantage, your child should start to prepare for the entrance exams well in advance. We could help you find good tutors, who know the requirements of the individual schools, and put together a study programme.
Moving to a boarding house can be a challenge for the kids. To help them adapt more quickly, we offer summer programmes, mostly aimed at studying English language, but with conditions that are very close to studying at a boarding school. These summer camps are held in the grounds of popular boarding schools during the summer holidays and in addition to purely linguistic programmes, there are academic programmes, which include other subjects of the British curriculum.
We will be happy to assist you in finding the best solution for you and your child.
