Our Partner Boarding Schools in the UK
Some, but not all, UKStudy boarding school partners are BAISIS members who have international study centers (ISCs) or international schools attached to them. These centers form a stepping stone into the British school system by providing intensive English language tuition, lessons in other academic subjects and supportive pastoral care aimed at helping a student to settle in quickly. In the classroom, teachers have additional training in linguistic awareness as well as the usual training in their specific subject. They typically teach smaller groups than are found in their parent schools and pay greater attention to subject definitions and vocabulary than a mainstream teacher might.
Meanwhile, in the boarding house, sympathy is balanced with greater and more overt clarity of instruction than is usually found within a mainstream boarding school. There is also a greater understanding of the particular needs of international borders. In this way, international students can make quicker academic and linguistic progress and settle in more easily than might be the case in a mainstream school. In response to the needs of boarding school students studying in the UK, UKStudy has developed an index of all UK boarding schools accredited by the British counsel. Below, you will find a small description of every boarding school in the UK tagged to a link leading to the designated page of each college for further information.
