BESSA: The British Education and Schools Show in Asia
27 October @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
BESSA, the British Education and Schools Show in Asia, is a curated forum for families to discover British boarding education and to meet representatives from some of the most prestigious schools and colleges in the UK. Speak to representatives of highly-regarded boarding schools and get answers to queries ranging from admissions procedures to A level or IB curriculum, issues concerning special needs support, as well as recent updates in the UK education landscape.
At the event, get expert help on test preparation, tutoring, special needs consultancy and finding suitable host families. Tutoring companies will offer advice in Oxbridge interview practice, pre-test preparations, school entrance examinations, academic enrichment and more. Education consultants specialising in placing pupils with a range of learning difficulties, including Dyslexia, ADHD, Autism and high functioning Asperger’s syndrome, will be present to assist families who have such needs.
There will also be a lineup of keynote speakers including Harry Hammond, Senior Master of Radley College and Martin Cropper, Director of Admissions at Shrewsbury School who will present “How the Best Boarding Schools Prepare You for University and After”. Sheridan Steen, Founder of Dyslexia School Search with over 20 years of experience in education, will advise on “Supporting Special Needs in Boarding Schools”. Will Orr-Ewing, Founder of Keystone Tutors and Harriet Blomefield will provide an in-depth look into “Tips for Applying to Top UK Universities”. Each speaker will have a Q&A session after their presentations.
