UK International Education Webinar
February 26 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
We are inviting parents to this innovative webinar to discuss the benefits of international education in the UK.
There are many benefits of truly international education in the UK. 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 has also sat on the Board of the British Council and Metropolis Group
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.
Learn these are more in the upcoming webinar; where we adequately get information regarding what international schools in the UK offer application, boarding, and more.
