SIXTH FORM APPLICATION FOR AN EXPAT FAMILY LIVING IN SOUTH AFRICA
This British expat family were keen to find the right sixth form day or weekly boarding school, close to their UK-home for a planned relocation from overseas. With twins, it was crucial to find a school with the right sixth form subject choices to cater for the academic talents and interests of both children. Moving from an international school to a UK school, parents were initially unsure whether A Levels or IB would be the right path to take for sixth form.
Our consultant worked closely with the family to identify a short-list of schools that would be suitable for both students.
First, we built a portfolio of the girls’ interests and abilities, which we used alongside their school reports to identify places at suitable schools to meet their subject choices, interests and strengths. We approached the schools to see if they had places available and introduced them to the family, before arranging visits.
We then worked with the family to help them to handle the often complicated sixth form entry processes of each school, arranged tutors to help with the odd gap in their curriculum knowledge, as well as preparing them for the unfamiliar interview process.
Both girls were offered places at the parents’ first-choice school in their chosen location for their move back to the UK. Having settled exceptionally well into sixth form life, both girls are now working with one of our consultants to plan and prepare their UCAS university applications.
