Are you considering sending your child to boarding school?
Catch a chance to hear from Jane Jorgensen, Director of Admissions and Marketing at Abingdon, a leading independent day and boarding school for boys 11 – 18 and Abingdon Prep, for boys aged 4 – 13. Jane will provide insight on how a top UK boarding school education can help prepare your child for life and success.
Boarding schools are a good way for students to learn skills not taught in day schools and gear them towards becoming independent. The low teacher to student ratio (1:9 for Abingdon) means that students get more academic attention. Boarding schools such as Abingdon also provide extensive extracurricular options to nurture well-rounded students.
Jane will also be here to answer your questions about boarding school life, the academic curriculum and any relevant queries you may have.
