In recent years, an increasing number of families from Nigeria and Ghana have chosen Rossall and are recommending it to their friends for its “outstanding pastoral care, sporting excellence and very strong academic outcomes,

While ACS Cobham has also established strong connections in Ghana. “As a school with more than 70 nationalities, we live by one of our school values which is to welcome everyone,” says Rob Crowther, Head of Senior School.


Hannah Drew from Kingswood in Bath comments on the welcoming boarding community.  “Our house staff are well practiced at offering the support to pupils who are away from their families, perhaps for the first time.”

Truro High is a popular choice for girls from West Africa because it “offers a safe and affordable learning environment where girls thrive and are helped to achieve their very best,” explains Headmistress, Sarah Matthews.

“Parents thank the school for the substantial value added during their daughters time at the school where incredible academics and unparalleled opportunities run hand in hand,” she adds.
