Largest delegation to visit Accra to meet “increased interest” in British boarding schools



“More families from Ghana than ever before are considering a UK Boarding School Education for their daughters and sons,” according to Mark Brooks, an experienced educational consultant who has been advising families from the region for 14 years and is hosting another exhibition in Accra this October.

“Parents are choosing the UK for their children in increased numbers in the past 12 months – because of secluded settings, strong values, academic ambition, and superb support within a welcoming international community,” Mr Brooks says.

A delegation of 16 Principals and Registrars from leading schools, the largest group to visit the country, will be meeting with families at the UK Boarding Schools Week fair at The Kempinski Gold Coast City Hotel, Accra on Wednesday 5th October from 2pm to 4pm and an Evening Reception from 6pm to 8pm.

UK schools offer traditional British values in an environment where students live and learn with others from across the globe.

“We are an exceptional community of genuinely diverse people, we actively welcome everyone,” says Barnaby Sandow, Head of School, at ACS Cobham, who inspire the world’s next global thinkers and doers from 70 different nations, whose school will be attending.


Sylvia Brett, Principal of Harrogate Ladies College says: “We have a duty and responsibility to send pupils into the world with the best possible qualifications they can achieve and a lifelong love of learning.”

The full list of schools taking part in the delegation includes ACS Cobham, Bromsgrove School, Cardiff
Sixth Form College, CATS, Culford School, David Game College, Earlscliffe College, Harrogate Ladies College, Holmewood House, Lancing College, LVS Ascot, Mount Kelly, Millfield, TASIS England, Westonbirt School and Wellington School.

The events are fully supported by the British High Commission in Accra, and in association with the UK’s Department for International Trade (DIT) and organised by Mark Brooks Education, a DIT Export Champion.

“This is the most wonderful educational environment to be in,” concludes Christine Cunniffe Principal of LVS Ascot and summarises the benefits of a UK school.

“Our thriving schools will support your child to reach their full potential and become confident individuals both inside and beyond the classroom.”
