Top British Principals, Registrars Arrive
A delegation of 16 principals and registrars from leading schools in the United Kingdom (UK) – the largest group to visit Ghana in recent time – has arrived for the UK Boarding Schools Week Fair.
The delegation is expected to have meetings with parents at the Kempinski Gold Coast City Hotel, Accra this Wednesday, October 5, from 2pm to 4pm, and later host an Evening Reception from 6pm to 8pm.
UK schools offer traditional British values in an environment where students live and learn with others from across the globe.
Mark Brooks, the host of the exhibition and an experienced educational consultant, who has been advising parents from the region for 14 years, said, “More families from Ghana than ever before are considering a UK Boarding School Education for their daughters and sons.”
He further said, “Parents are choosing the UK for their children in increased numbers in the past 12 months – because of secluded settings, strong values, academic ambition and superb support within a welcoming international community.”
Barnaby Sandow, Head of School, at ACS Cobham, who inspires the world’s next global thinkers and doers from 70 different nations, whose school will be attending, says, “We are an exceptional community of genuinely diverse people, we actively welcome everyone.”
Sylvia Brett, Principal of Harrogate Ladies College, says: “We have a duty and responsibility to send pupils into the world with the best possible qualifications they can achieve and a lifelong love of learning.”
The full list of schools taking part in the delegation includes ACS Cobham, Bromsgrove School, Cardiff, Sixth Form College, CATS, Culford School, David Game College, Earlscliffe College, Harrogate Ladies College, Holmewood House, Lancing College, LVS Ascot, Mount Kelly, Millfield, TASIS England, Westonbirt School and Wellington School.
The events are fully supported by the British High Commission in Accra, in association with the UK’s Department for International Trade (DIT) and organised by Mark Brooks Education, a DIT Export Champion.
“This is the most wonderful educational environment to be in,” says Christine Cunniffe, Principal of LVS Ascot.
Summarising the benefits of a UK school, she concludes, “Our thriving schools will support your child to reach their full potential and become confident individuals both inside and beyond the classroom.”
