One of the biggest decisions all parents make is in choosing how to educate their children. It is a preoccupation and a talking point throughout the childhood years, and how much more so for those of you who are considering the benefits of an international education for your children. If you are talking about sending your child overseas, probably to boarding school, then this book is for you. With a particular focus on UK boarding schools, it charts the journey, stage by stage, that each and every parent and student must make, together with our advice and encouragement along the way. The book is based on extensive research and a sizeable archive of advice and anecdotes from a huge number of students, teachers, parents and educational consultants. The advice ranges from the very obvious to the rather more surprising. It will leave you and your child feeling better armed for what is ahead.
