Choosing a boarding school in England from Italy
There are hundreds of boarding schools in the UK and for students (and their parents) from abroad, trying to find the right school can be a daunting and confusing process. We are here to help you. Our consultants are fluent in Italian and can offer you a range of services to help you find the best school for your child and to explain the main dates of the English school calendar.
1. Make a list of your requirements: location, type of school, extracurricular activities, child’s interests…
This is the first step to choose the right boarding school in England from Italy. Have a think about what sort of school you and your child would like. Be honest and open. Think about your child’s temperament and personality, their likes and dislikes. Consider what sorts of things they enjoy doing and what interests them. Next, ask yourself if there are other requirements that you’re keen to include in a list of ideal schools. For example a faith school environment might be important to you, perhaps a single-sex school might be something you wish to consider or you’re looking for a school in a particular location.
