English boarding school: 5 reasons to study in one

The boarding schools in England offer an excellent education and prepare their students for a world in which speaking and writing English is paramount. If you want to study in an English boarding school, we in Another Education help you choose the one that is most convenient for your children and we are specialists in preparing the interview and the admission exams.

Now, why choose an English boarding school instead of other alternatives? Here are the 10 reasons that, according to our experience, summarize why you have to study in an internal English. When you finish reading this post, we have no doubt that it is the best option if you want your children to return to Spain with the highest English level.

5 reasons why study in an English boarding school

  1. Learn or improve English. In an English boarding school, the classrooms have a small number of students and each one has a specialized tutor who helps you throughout the school year to understand the classes and improve English. The younger the children are the faster they become fluent as well as fimding it easier to pick up the British accent. In addition, in these schools there is the EAL subject (‘English as an Additional Language’, in its acronym in English) for non-English students, which they have to do until they acquire the level necessary to pursue the subject ‘English Literature’ (‘English Literature’) with native students
  2. Quality of English education. The internees in England have met the high quality standards and, in our experience, English education stands out for personal attention to the student. Teachers extol the qualities of children, the powers of each student’s skills and encourage them to work hard to excel in those they are best at. The lessons focus on reinforcing their abilities and work on building excellence.
  3. Prepare for college. British degrees are valued by universities around the world. In fact, in some English schools and boarding schools, students who have completed their ‘A Level’ (the Spanish Bachillerato) have entered the second course of some degrees at universities in England or even the United States, due to the high level of specialization.
  4. Share the experience with children of other nationalities and cultures. In an English boarding school, boys, girls or both international and local can live together. Thanks to living together, your children will better understand other cultures, be more open and tolerant and make friends with students from all over the world, while improving their language skills.
  5. Nature and health. Studying in the United Kingdom is an opportunity to get to know the English countryside, since most of the English boarding schools are in the countryside, in the middle of nature, in rural areas of sublime beauty, where pollution is minimal, something highly recommended for the health of all, especially for that of our children.

English boarding school

If you want to study in an English boarding school, we at Another Education help you choose the one that is most convenient for your children and we are specialists in preparing the interview and admission tests.

Each English boarding school must meet the standards of quality of education and depending on the results of their students they occupy one or another position in the national ranking of schools, the same for state schools and private schools. Here we have to clarify that education in an English boarding school can be public with a different cost (lower) than private (more expensive). English education has, as in Spain, a compulsory educational program that both public and private schools must follow.

The boarding school students in England are composed of international and local students and can be male, female or mixed. The ‘interns’ (called ‘boarders’) are the students who live in the school. The ‘day students’ (‘day boys’ or ‘day girls’) live with their families and return to their homes when the school day ends. The coexistence between boarders and day students in English boarding schools creates a perfect social atmosphere that helps them develop their personal growth. The majority of British boarding schools are mixed, that is, boys and girls attend classes together, but the accommodation is separate.

English boarding school: building excellence

In my experience as a Housemistress in an English boarding school, I can affirm that English education excels in personal attention to the student. I realised during the six years I worked in an English boarding school that the teachers extol the qualities of the boys and girls, empower them with the abilities of each student and encourage them to work hard to excel in what they do best. They provide classes to reinforce those skills and thus build excellence.

Year 7

What is life like in the first year of Secondary Education in a school in England? Before you go there, we are to tell you about a typical day in Year 7 from the moment they get up, through what happens in class, to what they do after school in order to help them familiarise themselves with boarding school life.

Living for a year in an English boarding school as a boarder is a unique and extremely rewarding experience. Normally, Year 7 students share a room as they wil do in Year 8 and 9. From Year 10 onwards, they only have to share the bathroom and common areas.

If they are new students, they normally are assigned a ‘buddy’, that is, a class or roommate who during the first term of the course (three months approximately) helps them adapt and integrate. English boarding schools place a lot of importance on ‘Community’, that is, they insist that pupils should help each other constantly and especially at the beginning of the school year, especially if the children are new students.

Regarding the academic area, each student is assigned a personal tutor, who will accompany, guide and help them in everything they need throughout the school year and beyond.

One day at an English boarding school: ‘Year 7’

After getting up, you have to put on your uniform, make your bed, and tidy your room before going for breakfast at the dinning hall or canteen. Once you have had breakfast, you go back to the ‘boarding area’ to brush your teeth and pack the backpack with the books you will need during the school day. In some boarding schools, the rooms are inspected to verify that everything is collected and tidied.

When the school day is over, you have free time that you can dedicate to doing other activities (‘extracurricular activities’), such as tennis, polo, swimming, horse riding, cooking, instruments, choir, fencing, etc. Around six in the evening it is time for dinner. Until then, both day students and boarders have still stayed at school. At that time, the day students usually go home. The boarders, after dinner, have ‘study’ in their own rooms or in the library. Once you have done your homework, you may have a snack and after a little free time (to read or chat with your friends or even with your family through your phone), it is time to go to bed (‘Lights out!’).

Studying English: why and where

English is currently the universal language; Therefore, studying English is necessary and speaking English and writing English is essential in our global world.


While it is true that in our time it is easy to learn English, have access to material to study and / or improve English on the Internet, go to academies where to study English, and of course study English in schools, our educational experience has shown us that there is nothing that exceeds being able to study English abroad. We think it is ideal to do so in the United Kingdom, although other countries such as Ireland, the United States and Canada can also be considered.

Immersion in the English language

We recommend taking a course in an English-speaking country, where the student has an immersion in the English language, both oral and written, that allows him to advance in the knowledge of it. That is why studying a course in an English school, where the student has to interact with their classmates and teachers in English, where the classes are in English, where the written communication path is English, where sports, leisure, in short , all his life turn and relate to the study of English, allow him to progress in a real way while the student develops a lot of relational skills that will contribute to his personal growth.

Studying English: our recommendation

In Another Education it seems ideal that a student will study English at a school during a whole course and that the regime is internship, so the ‘input’ he receives during his stay in the center is full time. Of course you can also go to school every day and live as a family, but this does not seem so advantageous since in a boarding school you are always exposed to the language. In a family you can get into your room and stay there longer than you should, and during the weekends you will not be as forced to get together with your classmates.

English education system: the national curriculum

The national curriculum of the English education system is divided into five stages (‘Key stages’):

  •   ‘Key Stage’ 1 – Infant and Years 1 & 2: for students between 5 and 7 years old.
  •   ‘Key Stage’ 2 – Years 3 – 6: for students between 8 and 11 years old.
  •   ‘Key Stage’ 3 – Years 7 – 9: for students between 12 and 14 years old.
  •    ‘Key Stage’ 4 – Years 10 – 11: for students between 15 and 16 years old.
  •    ‘Key Stage’ 5 – Years 12 – 13: for students between 17 and 18 years old.

In the English educational system, the years a student studies receive a number. Primary education begins at age 5 in Year 1. Most students begin their secondary education at the age of 11 (Year 7). At age 16 (at the end of Key Stage 4 and year 11) students sit an exam: the General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE). The number of subjects that the candidates take ranges from 8 to 10 including in most cases English and Mathematics.

Overseas students in England

However, not all students do these amount of subjects. For instance, Spanish students who do the GCSEs of the English education system must pass at least 4 of the subjects they have taken to validate their studies in the Spanish educational system. In the previous Key Stages it is not necessary to pass any number of subjects, since students automatically continue to do the next course in the educational system of both countries. Key Stage 5 (‘A´Levels’) is for students aged 16-18 (sometimes 19) who take an advanced level final exam after a two-year course. The usual number of subjects taken at this stage is 4.

Before university

Students who wish to continue their university studies in the United Kingdom apply for a place in one or several universities of their choice and it is the universities which ask for results in the A´Levels (Advanced Level). If these results are obtained, the student is offered a place and joins the university. Students in the English education system typically take a ‘gap year’ before starting their degrees.
