How does the process work?
When we receive your enquiry about student placement, we will contact you to ask for some information about your child. You will need to provide the basic details – name, date of birth, and gender – and we will also need to establish the year group you are applying for.
For international students, we also need to establish their level of English, so we can take this into account when looking for the best and most appropriate school.
We will require school reports, and a school reference, along with a personal statement written by the student. This personal statement plays an important role in placement, as schools like to see the student’s level of written English, and to find out a bit more about the child.
We will then search for some schools that meets your criteria, and will send a school profile of our suggestions to you to read through and digest. If you have any questions about the school at this point, we will be able to help you by phone or email. When you are happy with the school choice, we do ask that you return to us to apply for a place at the school, so that we can continue to help you with our valuable knowledge and experience.
What happens next?
You will then receive a registration form to complete and arrange for payment of a registration fee, the amount of which varies from school to school but 100 pounds sterling is an average (non refundable). At this stage, the majority of schools will require an entry test to be completed, which needs to take place under strict exam conditions. This can be done at British Council Offices if overseas, or at the student’s current school. Sometimes the student will be invited to visit the school to be interviewed.
Once you have registered and your child has been tested and an offer made, a deposit is then required to accept and secure the place. This is generally one term’s school fees, plus one term’s school fees will have to be paid by the first day of term. Deposits are refunded at the end of a student’s schooling, less any money outstanding on your account and assuming that proper notice has been given.
Your child will now have a place at boarding school, and we can now offer Guardianship services for the duration of your child’s studies.
