The Benefits of Boarding School for Children

Boarding schools are popular for a range of reasons that help children build their own confidence, be more independent and develop a range of skills unique to them. It’s a big part of their character, and students that go to boarding school will have a different experience to share with those that aren’t. From the best boarding school in the UK, we explore the biggest benefits that boarding schools bring to children.

A first-class education

Boarding schools have a much higher focus on a child’s individual development and core skills, building high calibre curriculums for students throughout their time at school. Teachers are usually professionals in their field and can provide stellar education through their own unique experience and perspectives. Boarding students may also have the benefit of being able to talk to teachers after regular school hours and receive extra tuition.

A clear sense of community

Having the space to work with other students, communicate with others and have fun can build a big community feeling between everyone. Young people get to communicate more often with adults (namely teachers and other staff) to greatly build their confidence, as well as working with them to organise activities and study sessions between other students.

Feeling like a family

Everyone can look out for each other when they’re in a boarding school setting. A huge sense of family is seen in boarding schools, which can be a huge relief for parents keen to see how their children are doing. Boarding schools always have a clear aim to keep students comfortable and supported throughout their time there.


A boarding school experience is like no other, with amazing friendships, a clear path through their studies and a much more developed curriculum with a plethora of resources. If you’re considering a boarding school for your child, then look no further with your choice.

Hi and welcome to The Willow Tree. I’m Michelle, also known as Shel and I am a mama to three beautiful crazy kids – I have two handsome boys and a wild and wonderful girl.

I really wanted a concrete place to share my love for travel, in particular Disney and offer my readers a chance to gain some knowledge around what we love to do as a family of 5.

I share our family adventures which include days out, travel advice and tips, holiday reviews, restaurant visits and of course, our love for Disney, including Disneyland Paris and Walt Disney World.

Life is about creating memories, and here we are sharing them with you
