Top High School Boarding Schools
April 27, 2019
You have decided that in order to stand a better chance of getting into university you would like to get into one of the top high school boarding schools in the UK. There are many schools that advertise themselves as being the best, so which one should you choose? The first thing you should think about is your strengths – what subjects do you excel in and would you like to pursue them in the future? If yes, you should be looking for a school that offers these subjects and places a strong emphasis on them.
There are several other factors that you should take into account as you consider top boarding high schools in England:
• Do you want to be a weekly boarder or would you like to board for the term? If you are a weekly boarder you will be able to go home every Friday afternoon and come back to school on Monday morning. This is a good idea if you are the kind of person who gets homesick, but on the other hand you will miss out on any weekend activities that are on offer. Also, it doesn’t make much sense to be a weekly boarder if you live far away from the school – you will end up spending half the weekend on a commute. A full boarder is only able to go home during the midterm break and when schools close for holidays.
• You should think about where you will stay. Most of the best boarding schools have boarding facilities on campus that have everything students need but they can be expensive especially for students who are on a budget. That is why some students choose to live outside school.
Why don’t you look into the Cambridge Centre for Sixth Form Studies? It is one of the best boarding high schools and you can find out more on https://www.ccss.co.uk/boarding/.
