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

Inessa, THANK YOU VERY MUCH for your help, patience, sympathy, support and inspiration… you helped our daughter with her future career path, conquer her fears and empowered her to make the leap. She is very happy now and is studying seriously. We believe she will find herself. Yesterday, Tanya arrived in Edinburgh and today she is going to attend her first lectures at the university!
