Many expat families are considering the UK Boarding School Education
A UK boarding education is an opportunity for your child to achieve their dream. Its getting increasingly popular with local and expat families living in the Middle East. As parents, our goal is to raise confident, happy, independent children who can go out in this world and pursue their dreams.
What is UK boarding school life really like?
Structured, busy, opportunities to try new activities, being with friends 24/7. The school days are longer and include time for homework ( called ‘prep’). The weeks may be longer with Saturday morning school and sports matches on a Saturday afternoon.
The facilities for sports and the arts are excellent and would fulfil the dream of any budding actor, golfer, singer, footballer, dancer. Imagine having access to those facilities throughout the school day, after school and weekends.
The boarding house becomes central to boarding life, as well as a bedroom (or dorm!). It offers a place to relax with friends and as parents this is likely to be your first point of contact.
The boarding experience encourages independence, confidence, courtesy, courage, kindness and compassion from living in a diverse and truly international environment.
Students are encouraged to develop skills in leadership, risk evaluation, problem solving, team working, organisation and decision-making – excellent preparation for life beyond school.
Anderson Education is hosting a UK Boarding School exhibition on 25th and 26th February at Grosvenor House Hotel, Dubai Marina.
Anderson Education will be offering families free impartial help and advice to find the right school for their child.
