Parents choose to send their children to live at boarding schools in the UK to learn about the culture, language, recreations, culinary traditions and atmosphere; so that by the time they join university, they speak fluent English and enjoy total familiarity with studying and living here.
The cost can be considerable, but the facilities and academic standards justify the initial spend and a cursory glance at the A-Level results of most boarding schools will explain why these most British of institutions attract a global client base.
Boarding schools are famously safe and disciplined environments for students, featuring some of the very best teaching staff in the country alongside top class musical, artistic and sporting facilities. Students will emerge with complete fluency in English and completely at home in an Anglophone environment to study and work anywhere in the world.
Fees for UK boarding schools range from £20,000 to £30,000 per year for each child. The cost can be as low as £12,000 for day pupils who live with their parents/guardian or in their own accommodation, and there are many excellent schools that take international pupils on that basis.
I had a very great experience right from the start to finish; All the staff were really great and very helpful. I recommend SI-UK for all students who are planning to study in the UK.
