Every child has something special inside. British schools establish what it is and actively encourage the development of skills and talents of every individual.

School breaks

UK schools have three terms: Autumn (or Michaelmas), Spring (or Lent) and Summer (or Easter). Half way through each term there will be a break called a Half Term or Long Leave when almost all schools close completely.  Some boarding schools also have a few weekends when the school closes and these weekends are usually called Exeats or Short Leaves.  Other schools stay open each weekend but students may go out on Sunday or overnight on Saturday.

Students can fly home for Half Terms or stay in the UK with a relative, friend or Guardian. A Guardian is also needed for a closed Exeat, unless parents are able to fly over.

Our consultants

Ever since I have been working with families who have decided to send their children to study in England I have made the journey with each and every one of them from the choice of a school to the choice of university and then their career. Many of my students have their own families now. One of my greatest joys has been to see how the British school system changes these children, how they start to believe in themselves and become more responsible and mature.
