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 travelling around the world to attend school in the UK can be daunting and complicated. We are experienced in supporting parents and students through the admissions process, visa applications, and planning this exciting educational journey with them.

 

Settling into 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 in routine aspects of daily life, for example helping them get set up with a UK phone number.

 

Helping with the next step

We support students as they plan for their next step. Our students receive offers from excellent schools like The King’s School, Canterbury, Shrewsbury, St Paul’s School, and Cardiff Sixth Form College. Former students have recently moved on to undergraduate courses at some of the best universities in the UK, including Oxford, Imperial, and St Andrews
