is a residential College for boys and girls aged 8-17 years who are intending
to enter a UK Independent School.
Our students come from a diverse range of countries ensuring that English is always the spoken medium.
Students stay for a minimum of one term and a maximum of 4, but students are not committed to a set period of time and can move onto their new school as soon as they are ready.
Being completely independent enables us to prepare our students for entry to any UK school of their parents’ choice and from arrival to departure we work hand in hand with the child's agent and new school to achieve the best for the child.
We ensure small class sizes so students receive a very high level of individual attention and the opportunity to develop quickly.
Each student has an Individual Learning Plan, this bespoke approach ensures individual needs are quickly recognised and worked upon.
The College has an excellent record of enabling students to enter their chosen schools, often exceeding their parents' expectations.
Bishopstrow College has Highly Trusted Sponsor status from the UK Border Agency and appears on the DCSF register (865/6041) as an Independent School. The College is also accredited by the British Council under the Accreditation UK Scheme.
Bishopstrow is not affiliated to one school but has well established relationships with many UK schools. We are the only truly independent International Study Centre in the UK to prepare 8 -13 year olds for the Independent School system. Our 4 term year, without exeats or half term holidays means students can stay with us up to 44 weeks of the year, allowing greater flexibility and support for families.
