Your questions answered

  • What happens if our relocation date falls outside the usual admissions cycle?
  • How will Brexit affect UK education and our school choices?
  • How do we find a school that will maintain our child's mother tongue while developing multiple language skills?
  • What about vocational and higher-education choices? 
  • How do the Scottish and English examination systems differ?
Written in an accessible style and from the relocation perspective, with beautiful illustrations and high-quality production, the guide will answer these questions – and more.Content includes lively and reassuring features covering everything from the English, Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish education systems and curricula to advice on choosing a school and submitting an application.In addition to exploring options in the state education sector, we reflect on the wealth of independent schools that support expatriate and international students, as well as UK relocating families, by covering such topics as educating the global leaders of the future, Brexit, boarding schools and helping international students to excel in British schools.The schools that have contributed editorial to the guide understand the needs of children and families in transition. They create diverse school communities that nurture the citizens of the future, equipped to seize the opportunities of a global world.

At Relocate Global, we understand the importance of ensuring that the whole family can make the most of life in their new location, so we include coverage of wider family support topics – for example, careers for relocating partners, intercultural and language skills and easing the transition to a new home and school – in our UK education guide.For ease of reference, directories of schools and education consultants, who can provide a range of useful services for time-pressed relocating parents (such as finding school places), will also be included.
