Boarding has always been my second home since I first came to England 4 years ago. I will always remember the first day I came to boarding, all the boarding staff helping me to familiarise with this community. I learned some essential life skills and have become more independent as well as taking care of others. I’ve made so many amazing memories during these 4 years that it makes me realise how fortunate I am.

I have been studying in Ratcliffe College for four years. Boarding helps us to develop many characteristics, such as managing our time effectively, to ensure we are achieving our potential. In addition, there are many facilities and resources in Boy’s Boarding to help us achieve a good score. For example study rooms, older students as learning leaders and teachers that teach different subjects. Apart from that, boarding is a good multicultural place where we can learn more about different countries every day. We also have a wide range of activities to help us balance our academic and social life such as weekends shopping trips, watching movies in cinema, go-karting and so on.
