Last minute advice for our students leaving for the UK

This time of year is bittersweet as our students leave us for their new UK schools. This year, we have students going to Eton, Harrow, Winchester, Westminster, Downe House, Wycombe Abbey, Oundle, King's Canterbury, Dragon, Tonbridge, St Mary's Calne, Charterhouse, Rugby and many other schools.

A few things for our students to think about:

1: New school, new start. You may not have played as big a role as you could in your previous school. Now is the time to join in.

2: Ask questions. It is by asking questions that you can extend your knowledge of a subject or clear up areas of confusion. The more you ask, the more you learn.

3: Don't be afraid to ask for help. There are multiple sources of assistance in your new schools: senior students (mentors/"big sisters") prefects, teachers, your house tutor and your house mistress/master. Don't suffer in silence.

4: Have fun, try everything (even the cabbage!)

Good luck, everyone at Brandon is very proud of you and wish you the best!
