Preparing for Boarding Life

Proper preparation prevents poor performance.

Plan ahead with ABBEY.


Boarding school staff are very experienced at helping students from overseas to settle into life as a boarder

For students with limited English proficiency and who have never been away from home, the thought of attending a boarding school several thousand miles away from home can be daunting to say the least. For this reason, many boarding schools do offer short holiday courses in the spring and summer to give students a taster of boarding life where they can experience up close what learning and living in boarding schools is like and get used to being away from home. The quality of pastoral care in British boarding schools is second to none and there are many support systems in place to help students settle into life as a boarder. Once enrolled, students are supported by a dedicated team of experienced boarding staff.
