Following your recent interview with the above students, would you please give your honest opinion on their academic ability and character. In particular, kindly mention any points, weather good or bad, which you feel may assist us to place the student in the best school and general environment to suit them.
I have met the above student and can confirm that they have been suitably prepared and they are both mentally and physically capable of an extended stay in a foreign country, away from their natural parents / guardians. I can also confirm that they have the appropriate level of English for the course / programme that they have applied for.
The school system in the UK is as follows…Up to the age of 14, we study a full range of subjects finishing in year 9.
Years 10 & 11 form a two-year syllabus towards GCSE Examinations taken at the end of Year 11. Students can enter this course during Year 10, and an average of ten subjects will be followed depending on the school.
Years 12 & 13 are two-year course leading to A-levels, which are taken at the end of Year 13. Students can enter this course in year 12, (also known as Lower Six) and the course followed is very flexible, therefore students can choose their own subjects. There is also a possibility of following both A/S and GCSE level courses in some subjects where the examinations can be taken in one year, providing a student completes the total Academic Year.
Following are the basic subjects that are studied in the British curriculum, not every subject is offered in every school, but it would be helpful if you would mark the subjects in which you are interested to enable the school to commence the preparation of your timetable before your arrival. Once you have arrived at the school, you will have a meeting with your Head to confirm your subjects.

As a new student attending the boarding school, your child will need both bedding and towels.
If you require us to do so, LTC will package and send a parcel to the school that you have chosen, so that it will be there upon the arrival.
The exact contents of the parcel will vary greatly from one school to another, but will be sent to the school, once your child has a confirmed placement. If you decide to use the service, please send a copy of the required bedding with this form, to ensure that the correct bedding and towels is at the school prior to your child arriving.
The cost of this, which will be taken from the expenses lodgement, would be the net cost of the bedding, towels and postage.
LTC make no profit on this service, which we hope will be benefit to you. Please fill and sign the box below to request or decline this service.
I give below the amount of weekly pocket money which is to be distributed to my child during their time at school, and during half term or exeats. I also confirm that this will stand unit such as I make changes in writing to LTC by completion of another form.
If you require pocket money to be sent during half term, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org as confirmation including the amount to be sent.
For students under 11 years of age, we usually place £50 at school at the start of term for extra expenses, such as weekend excursions. Pocket money needed is minimal, so we do not feel that parents should sign such a form until their child reaches the age of 11 years.
I, Being the parent / legal guardian* of the student, request The Language Training Co to act as my representative in undertaking the on-going guardianship of this child during their primary and secondary education in the United Kingdom.
I understand that The Language Training Co will not provide services if funds are in hand.
