Our Soft Landing Approach
The International College provides a soft landing in UK boarding for students
- Who have never boarded before
- Who do not have experience of the UK system
- Who wish to transfer into Y11 and attain GCSEs in just one year
We are a supportive community in a bespoke facilities, which allow us to provide our students with nurturing and personalised care.
Preparing for arrival
We know that coming around the world to attend school in the UK can be daunting and complicated. We are experienced in helping support parents and students through the admissions process, visa applications and planning this exciting educational journey.
Settling in to College life
We take time to help students understand and adapt to the routines and values of a UK boarding education. Our high staffing ratio means we have time to support students individually and help them settle in well.
Excellent teaching and learning environment
Students receive a great amount of individual support, in classes of up to 12 students, and the curriculum helps students adapt to the UK approach to learning. Our modern, purpose-built facilities, mean students enjoy comfortable twin en-suite bedrooms.
Adapting to life in the UK
We help students adapt to life in the UK by following key British celebrations through the year, visiting major British sites of interest and explaining British habits and customs.
We also support students with daily life, such as by helping them get set up with a UK phone number and electrical adapters.
Helping with the next step
We support students as they plan for their next step. Our students receive offers from prestigious schools like The King’s School, Canterbury, St Paul’s School, and Cardiff Sixth Form College, and our former students now in the sixth forms of other schools have received offers for undergraduate courses at universities including Oxford University, UCL and Warwick University.
