The British Boarding Schools Show Kuala Lumpur will be held on 21 November from 12 to 6pm at the Shangri-La Hotel with the aim of connecting parents to the leading boarding schools in the UK. There are many reasons why boarding is a viable option including the high quality of teaching, challenging academics, pastoral care and excellent sports facilities.
Worldwide interest in British boarding schools continues to grow and there are currently 69,979 boarders in UK schools with 41% from overseas families. The benefits of boarding at a leading British school are undisputed and importantly recognised by both university admissions teams and future employers.
The Show is also a good opportunity for parents to meet the Heads and Admissions Directors of prestigious boarding schools. Another unique aspect of this event is there will also be education, property and relocation experts exhibiting so parents can have all their queries answered and get first-hand advice on entry requirements, scholarships and bursaries. Leading this will be William Petty, Director at Bonas MacFarlane, London’s leading educational consultancy. William has been featured in publications including The Times, The Economist and Tatler, and has appeared in BBC Radio 4’s Today programme.
