My daughter studies second year here, finishes the program for high school students (A-level).
Hurtwood House School was chosen by a combination of factors, they came to the agency for the first time, even when they did not know where we would study. There are good conditions here, a lot of subjects to study (in England, high school students choose their own profile, there are no “stable” classes that are unchanged in terms of their composition) and a fairly reasonable price. Yes, and to London is relatively close - one can say, the "London area".
The school is boarding school, that is, the children live here: in our opinion, the most convenient option is when the parents themselves are abroad.
There are a lot of useful sports studios: children do not get bored and stay behind the books for more than they should be, many and actively relax.
Of the minuses: the high cost of additional textbooks (the basic course is included in the price, but for more effective study you need a lot of additional benefits). We will not attribute the high complexity and insufficient free time to shortcomings - they knew what they were going for. But if you are looking for an option to make it easier and have more rest - Hurtwood House School will not work: it is very demanding on its students.
