The UK Education System for International Students
Boarding Schools in England, including Slindon College, follow a National Curriculum that outlines your child’s educational plan in what is referred to as ‘Key Stages’. Children aged between 11 and 16 study Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 of the education curriculum. Secondary school education includes studying towards GCSEs that are an important part of every childs education.
Our pupils are taught in class sizes no larger than 10 to allow each pupil the chance to achieve to the best of their ability. Each pupil is treated as an individual with access to a range of classroom learning support, enrichment activities and guidance to help them achieve their potential throughout their Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 education.

How much does a Boarding School cost in the UK?
When choosing a UK boarding school for your child, you will need to take into account the fees and supplementary charges. Boarding school costs vary across the broad range of boarding schools in the UK. At Slindon College, our school fees are competitively priced and include the cost of tuition, housing and board costs. When considering the fees you need to take into account the quality of the teaching, the small class size, the high level of care and supervision, the good standard of accommodation and food, the on site facilities, and the numerous extracurricular activities included. It is important to ensure the boarding school chosen is the correct environment for your child.

Parents Living Outside the UK
The College requires parents living or working abroad to appoint a guardian, resident in the UK who we can contact in an emergency, who will act on behalf of the parent, and who will look after the pupil during half-terms and other times when the College is closed. This must be arranged prior to arrival at the College and contact details of the guardian must be given to the Admissions Officer.
All boys resident outside the UK must be in possession of a valid passport and, where appropriate an entry/student visa. Passports and any other important documentation must be handed in to the Houseparents for safe keeping.
Finding a guardian for your child
It is important to us that this works well. We can provide a list of guardianship agencies for overseas pupils, with 'bright world' as our preferred choice. Bright World holds full AEGIS (Association for the Education and Guardianship of International Students) accreditation to GOLD standard.
