This specialist industry briefing presented the perfect opportunity for a select group of key figures in the boarding school sector to hear about and discuss some significant themes impacting their business today and in the future.

The prestigious event held at The RSA in London culminated in a presentation by The Right Honourable Lord Patten, former Governor of Hong Kong and the current Chancellor of the University of Oxford.

The Right Honourable Lord Patten of Barnes, Chancellor of the University of Oxford, shared his thoughts on British boarding school education and how international students can develop a competitive advantage over their peers through their time in UK schools.

Lord Patten has been an influential figure on the international political scene for many years and he continues to play an important role in the future of many domestic and international young people.

Earlier in the day an expert panel were invited to share their ideas on how to support parents and students in making the right choices for future success.  They discussed current opportunities and challenges for agencies and institutions in the sector.  Guests and key representatives across the boarding school sector held an open discussion on the current opportunities and challenges for agencies and institutions in this sector, now and in the future.

The invited panellists featured Caroline Nixon, Taunton School; Aaron Lennon, Beechwood Sacred Heart School, Tunbridge Wells; Carol McNiven Young, RSAcademics; Suzanne Rowse, British Boarding School Connected; Caroline Ward Vine, Cambridge Education Group and Brighton College; Craig Wilson, CATS Colleges and Cambridge Education Group; and the panel was chaired by Elizabeth Cater,

Cambridge Education Group.

The RSA - The Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce - is described as “an enlightenment organisation committed to finding innovative and creative practical solutions to today’s social challenges”. Not by chance did Cambridge Education Group choose the RSA’s Great Room for this event.

The event was also reviewed by The PIE News this week > as well as attended by editors from Study Travel Magazine.
