Boarding School

Should you pull your child out of a day school and put them in boarding school? Education has become very competitive – only students who score the highest grades are able to get into good universities. Boarding schools in the UK are known to do very well academically but this doesn’t stop parents from worrying that their children may not do very well away from home. This is understandable especially if your child is going away for the first time.
The secret to finding the best fit for your child is making sure that their academic and emotional needs are met. Of course you want to send your child to a school that has a good academic track record. Look into how well the school has performed in the past – how many finalists are able to get into top universities? If you are happy with the academics you can then go on to check how well the school caters to the emotional and social development of the child.
Many children will tell you that while they are able to get good grades in boarding school they really don’t like it there. They don’t like their teachers, they aren’t able to make many friends and they feel isolated and alone. It is up to you as a parent to make sure that you choose a school that takes special care to ensure that each child fits in. If they have problems the school should do everything in its power to find the right solutions and you should be involved every step of the way.
You should visit Cambridge Centre for Sixth Form Studies. It is one of the best boarding schools in that part of the country and it accommodates children of all ages from different countries.
