Read more in their interview here as Tim Fish the Principal of Earlscliffe’s Sixth Form; and Henrietta Lightwood, the Director of International Marketing and Admissions at Dukes Education shared valuable insight on this.

Henrietta Lightwood has worked at some of the top traditional British boarding schools as well as international schools.

She had this to say about international students; “I really enjoy meeting students from all over the world and interviewing them and their families in their home countries. I personally have learned a lot. In many ways, teenagers are teenagers the world over. However different nationalities can have a different outlook. They end up bringing individual views together and coming to mutual understanding and respect. It is extremely stimulating for the young people in our care.”

Mr Fish, the principal of Earlscliffe shares some of the things that makes Earlsclife a perfect setting and school. According to him, when setting up Earlscliffe; he took examples of best practice seen in public, independent, UK, international, and US colleges. He was determined that they would only operate an excellent school.
