Why boarding school? A home away from home.

When it comes to finding the right educational path for their children, parents have many questions. Boarding schools offer a unique and nurturing environment that helps students thrive.

The Boarding Schools’ Association (BSA) champions boarding and promotes boarding excellence. The BSA is the largest association of boarding schools in the world and represents more than 600 independent and state boarding schools.

We are honored to announce that H-FARM International School received the School Year 2022/23 BSA Affiliate Membership.

This membership represents a remarkable milestone that will push us to be always better than our previous best.

What does it mean?

This certificate endorse that H-FARM International School follows the BSA standard with accessory services that aren’t as accessory as we think.

We provide the best possible boarding environment supporting students in their school, and out of school, paths. Helping them to find the balance between study hours and other activities, set priorities, and to-do lists, and most importantly be part of a group, a community where everyone is essential.

We believe that our friendly, professional, committed, and dedicated staff, for whom the happiness of the boarding house depends upon the satisfaction of individual boarders and the strength of the relationships they build with each other. Often, house staff becomes the most significant people in a child’s boarding life – whatever the age of the child – and they take that privilege very seriously indeed.

Now also our staff is part of a community of international schools and through that, it could keep in touch with the other boarding schools and discuss with them about their experience.

“Schools work hard to make the transition from home to school as smooth as possible. A seven-year-old is likely to find themself sharing a large bedroom with about half a dozen other youngsters, but their own private space, with a wardrobe and locker and sometimes a built-in desk. The combination of personal space – and inspectors are very keen to see this personalized and reflecting the individual – and company is important for helping children build friendships that may last a lifetime.”
