student testimonials Saeid From Iran

Programme: Junior College Programme School Destination: Le Rosey

Comments from Saied: Before I came to Bishopstrow I knew very little English but over time my English has improved greatly. I was at school with my younger brother and we have learnt to play lots of new sports, how to live away from home but more importantly we have experienced a British environment. We enjoy all our academic subjects and love all the activities and trips throughout the week.The classes are very small and this has given us the opportunity to progress academically with all the teachers supporting us. Chanya from Thailand Programme: Middle College Programme School Destination: Lancing College Comments: Bishopstrow has been instrumental in helping me improve my English, both written and spoken, and my academic subjects. I have learnt specific vocabulary in Science, Geography and History, and benefitted from some excellent interview practice for my next school. Bishopstrow has given me everything I need to ensure that when I start at Lancing, I will be fully prepared academically, socially and culturally and I am able to adapt. David from Hong Kong

boarding and pastoral care

We take our students’ safety and welfare extremely seriously, with pastoral care an area of strength. Fully-qualified staff are always available to discuss personal and health matters with students. All boarding staff have first aid training and where necessary, students are taken to the local doctor for medical treatment. Most students live in Barrow House at the heart of the main campus in shared rooms of between 2 and 6. Senior College students live in shared rooms of 2 or 3. Senior Girls have a separate floor within Barrow House and there are also three further Senior boarding houses located a short distance from the College. All students have access to indoor and outdoor recreational facilities, common rooms, study spaces and Wi-Fi. All meals are served in the main dining room in Barrow House. We also provide a laundry service.

Programme: Senior College Programme School Destination: Concord College

Comments: Bishopstrow has been the best preparation for me because it has not only prepared me academically for my next school, but given me the opportunity to experience boarding school life. The school has taught me British sports, academic English as well as British culture, especially the food. I have had many opportunities to communicate with other students from different countries as this is my first time abroad. I am now excited about making the next move to Concord. Elizaveta from Russia

Programme: 1 Year IGCSE Programme School Destination: King’s Canterbury

Comments: Bishopstrow has taught me British culture and traditions as well as how to behave in and outside of the classroom. I have become a more independent person, which has given me the confidence to achieve my dream of going to King’s Canterbury. As well as learning how to play different sports like netball and hockey, which we don’t do in Russia, I have become familiar with the British system of education and its standards. Bishopstrow is not just a school, it is more like a family and staff really care about the students.

Tom fromVietnam Programme: 1 Year IGCSE Programme School Destination: St Edward’s Oxford

Comments: With Bishopstrow’s help, I was able to adapt quickly to improve my subject grades to enter a top school. The teachers have helped me with my entrance exams in order to gain entry to St Edward’s Oxford. They have encouraged me to work hard and given me all the tools I need to go on to Sixth Form.
