6th Form Boarding Schools in England
April 27, 2019
As you consider your higher education options you may want to take a look at sixth form boarding schools in the UK. The UK has some of the best boarding schools in the world. Whether you are considering a career in the sciences, arts, business or politics getting enrolled into one of these schools is almost a sure way of getting where you want to go. Of course it is important to define what you want to do in the future – you may not be certain about what exactly you want to do as an adult, but a good place to start would be with subjects that you enjoy doing, and those that you do well in.
Extracurricular activities are an important part of UK boarding schools. Some schools tend towards certain activities, while others try to offer a wider array. There are some sixth form schools, for example, that will favour sports-centric extracurricular activities so if you are not a physically active individual you may have a hard time if you enrol in one of them – you may want to look at schools that lean towards music or arts, or you may want to find one that offers many activities that you can choose from.
Some boarding schools cater mostly to weekly boarders – they are in school from Monday to Friday and then go home on weekends. If most students are weekly boarders there are usually very few activities during the weekend, and full boarders are mostly left to their own devices. If you plan to be a full time boarder you should be looking for a school that enrols more full than weekly boarders.
One such school is the Cambridge Centre for Sixth Form Studies. You can read more about it on http://ccss.co.uk/.
