Find out more about the most common practices, challenges and opportunities in international school transitions-care. 

Watch a presentation by the report authors Jane Barron of Globally Grounded and Ellen Mahoney of Sea Change Mentoring, as they talk through their findings.

Discover the results of their data collected from international schools enrolling a percentage, big or small, of foreign students. The aim of the research is to equip school school leaders in forging a logical pathway towards providing optimal transitions-care to students, parents and educators.

Find the perfect school from the comfort of your home

Now is the ideal time to discover the right school for your child. As schools hosted Open Days and Virtual Events throughout the autumn, we used the opportunity throughout November to showcase the schools around the world that welcome relocating families and international students, not only at the beginning of a new academic year, but also at any time, with rolling admissions to meet the needs of families on the move.

The next Great International Education & Schools' Fair is coming in spring 2021
