2. Private Education 私立教育- Independent School (United Kingdom)

• Introduction of independent school

There are around 2,500 independent school in the UK, which educate around 615,000 children. In 2017, the average cost for private schooling was £14,102 for day school and £32,259 for boarding school.

• Why choose UK for private education?
Independent schools in the UK are recognised by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) as being among the best in the world. Some independent schools are particularly historical, such as The King’s School, Canterbury (founded as part of the church on 597). There are various types of independent schools including selective and non-selective schools, single-sex or co-educational, with some of them offering the opportunity to board. The academic success that has been achieved by pupils, and the focus on traditional difficult subjects, attracts many parents to send their children to an independent school in the UK. There is also a great focus on the development of the whole child through a range of co-curricular activities, either in sport, art, music or drama.
