Benefits of International Schooling

Over half of international employees move with their children. They are concerned about how overseas relocations might impact their children’s education and long-term career prospects.
The UK offers expat families the opportunity to send their children to any of the following schools: a UK government school, an independent private school, or a foreign school. These schools are usually taught in the student’s home language. Each has its own merits. It is crucial that each child’s individual welfare, needs and preferences are taken into consideration when choosing the right school.

These are the benefits of being a world-class school:

There are many nationalities represented in the enrolment, which creates an environment where students can settle in and make new friends.
Because of the unpredictable nature of international assignments, admission is open to all students. English is the medium of instruction. However English language support can be provided to students who don’t speak English.
To help students settle into their new country, support is offered to their families and friends through the school community and programs.

Our International Baccalaureate curriculum and Canadian curriculum offer students a high-quality ‘portable’ education that will be of benefit no matter where they go.

What is the impact of international school attendance on students? An alumni survey has revealed that students who have received an international education are well-prepared to continue their studies and work. International school students are more likely to develop soft skills like time management, critical thinking and independent thought than peers who have studied national qualifications programmes.

Nearly all respondents felt their international education prepared their for their career. The top quality highlighted by 76% was an appreciation for different cultures. 57% stated that their education gave them an open mind. 58% said they had communication skills while 60% said they have self-management and management skills.
