What are lessons like at a UK boarding school? What subjects can I choose from?
Tuition usually takes place in small groups, normally with two different subject specialist teachers. English boarding schools enjoy an excellent reputation around the world. The main reason is the high standard of teaching. Teachers encourage and motivate students to reach their full potential. Questions in the classroom are always welcomed and help after lessons and during study periods is provided by tutors.
Lessons are usually interactive and in a relaxed atmosphere. Modern technology, such as interactive whiteboards and I-pads is used where appropriate. This adds to students’ enjoyment and interest in their subjects.
Along traditional subjects a wide variety is offered. These normally include:
Languages (English, Spanish, French, German and Latin), creative subjects (Art, Design and Technology and Photography) and the humanities (Economics, Business Studies, Law and Psychology). Students can therefore gain a wide ranging academic experience based on their strengths as an individual.
Additional English lessons are offered to international students if necessary.
