Study UK: Boarding School or Sixth Form College?








Boarding School or Sixth Form College?


Interviewing NOW for January and September 2018

As these students mature and approach their senior secondary, pre-university programmes many of them are ready to move on from a traditional boarding environment to one that is more suited to mature, young adults seeking semi-independence and a greater level of academic focus.

Boarding schools can offer a superb introduction to study abroad. They can also provide the range of support and activities that many younger students need when they live away from home for the first time.

MPW welcomes a limited number of 15+ international students each year looking for exactly this change.





MPW students often express some or all of the following before joining us from boarding school:

  • "I am looking for a flexible academic environment that can meet my needs".
  • "I am looking for greater subject choice".
  • "I require targeted support, workshops and guidance for my university goals such as: Medicine, Veterinary Science, Dentistry, Oxbridge, Business / Economics, Art, Fashion, Architecture, Law, Engineering".
  • "I have outgrown my boarding school and I’m ready for a sixth form college environment".
  • "I would prefer to be based in a city over a rural environment".
