UK private schools are bitter rivals to the public education system, and boarding directors know that parents who pay for their children expect from schools not only modern teaching methods, but also high quality provisions for a child. Therefore, all laboratories, music rooms, computer classes and gyms are equipped, as a rule, with the latest technology.
During 2010, private schools spent £1,580 per student on updating the material and technical base. On the other hand, keep in mind that the word “equipment” refers, among other things, to the building itself: UK boarding schools are located in picturesque houses, each of which has its own unique history and embodies the pride, significance and inviolability of an educational institution.
An excellent choice
Each UK boarding school creates its own unique atmosphere, the ratio of academic achievement, equipment offered and the traditions that they adhere to.
To name just a few examples: parents and students can choose from mixed schools and schools for girls or boys, from schools where most of the students study on a boarding school basis, or from those with an emphasis on sports, for example. Some schools can be very formal, where it is necessary to wear traditional uniforms, while others emphasize self-expression. The range of choices is very wide, but one thing is clear that you can always find an option that will certainly suit your child.
Mixing cultures and international language
A great advantage is that students are in a mixture of cultures, as well as in the society of native speakers, at the same time.
The Boarding Schools accept people from all over the world, living together and learning with British and international students creates a living example of a mixture of cultures that is still considered a rarity even in today’s world.
English is the international language of business, science and the Internet, and there is no better way to learn the language than long-term studies to fully immerse yourself in the language environment. Boarding schools understand that an international student may always need help, and they will provide special learning opportunities and support for communication difficulties.
