Details

Modern boarding schools are relaxed and pleasant places for children to develop. However, this new freedom does mean that boarders have to make more of their own decisions and puts a new burden of responsibility on their shoulders.

This excellent book offers advice from a mother on how to prepare girls for their first experience of boarding school. It is ideal for parents who have already decided that boarding is the best option and is a guide to preparing your daughter so that she can get the most out of the wonderful opportunity she has been given.

Based on extensive research and a sizable archive of advice and anecdotes from a huge number of staff, girls and parents, the advice ranges from the obvious to the rather more surprising. It will certainly leave you and your daughter better armed for what is ahead.

Victoria Davies Jones worked for 12 years as a producer and reporter for BBC TV/Radio News. During her career she covered major events, such as 9/11, the Watford Junction train crash and the Channel tunnel opening. Her documentary work – recorded on location during the Bosnian crisis – received a BT Press Award. To succeed in today's competitive world, Victoria believes that academic success is not enough: young people need to be able to communicate and present themselves effectively. She has a daughter who started boarding school in 2013.
