Boarding Schools in England
April 5, 2019
Is boarding school in England a good idea for your child? This is a question that many parents grapple with especially as their children grow older. Sending your child away to a boarding school can be hard especially for hands-on parents who want to know how their children are doing on a day to day basis. However, there are some important benefits of boarding schools in England that can help you overcome your anxiety.
One of the most important reasons to send your child to boarding school is the fact that they no longer have to commute to school on a daily basis. If your child has to spend more than half an hour on the way to school and back each day they probably feel the same way you do each time you are stuck in traffic. They have to wake up early each morning, they often get home quite late and they have to suffer the daily frustrations of a long commute. Boarding school eliminates the need to travel – your child is able to get to class by taking a short walk.
Another consideration to keep in mind when you are thinking about whether or not to send your child to boarding school is how much time you are able to spend with them. As your child grows older they need supervision. Most children end up getting in trouble because when they get home after school there is no one there to see what they get up to. If you work long hours or if you travel often boarding school is a good place for your child because they will be supervised at all times.
One of the best places to send your child is CCSS – they have an excellent curriculum, a long list of extracurricular activities and an excellent faculty and support staff.
