Spiritual, moral, social and cultural education helps children develop personal qualities. One of the most important aims and ethos of boarding schools is not only giving students an impressive education, but also enrich them with values like thoughtfulness, honesty, respect for difference, moral principles, independence, and self-respect.
Cultural diversity is highly valued in boarding schools. Students coming from different countries around the world unite with students from England, Scotland, North Ireland and Wales. In such a rich mixture, students are cultivated as global citizens learning and respecting each other’s language, culture and traditions.
