”My teachers and academic tutors have been supportive. A key reason why I choose to study at Padworth is the smaller classes. I have really enjoyed these. In addition, being a smaller school, I have had the opportunity to get to know most of the school community. I plan on attending university this September to study Therapeutic Psychology.”

“I have studied A Levels. It has been a great experience studying in another education system that is different from your own country’s. Classes are small, therefore we have more time to ask our questions in detail and more interaction with teachers, which has helped me in my studies. I have learned how to be an independent person and I have developed my social interaction skills with people from different nationalities and cultures.”

”The fact that you get to meet people of varying backgrounds is what I enjoy most. I get to learn about the culture of other nationalities and sharing my own. It has helped me become more open minded and confident. I have had a lot of support from teachers and staff helping lead me in the right direction and advising me on what is best for me. My future plans are to get into biomedical science and to eventually pursue a career in forensic science. Padworth not only focuses on helping students academically; it also prioritises student well-being and is willing to help me achieve my future aspirations.”

”Padworth is a small community where everyone bonds easily. Studying at Padworth in small groups is fun because there are more interactions between everyone. This increases ‘mentality’ while studying. I have many uncountable memorable experiences. I have met so many new people from different backgrounds and developed myself.”

”I choose Padworth primarily because of the smaller classes, where each individual gets equal focus from the teacher. Moreover, I also liked Padworth for its international aspect, as you can mix with different cultures. I founded the Debating Club last year. I have also taken part in Fundraising Club, STEM Club, IDEA Club, table top games and Revision Club over the past two years.
With great teachers who are always there to help and the resources provided, I was able to achieve the grades that I required to get accepted into my chosen university course of Medicine.”

”I am in Granary House. I have made lots of memories with my friends here. For example, it is really nice to have some fun playing board games once a week. Overall, I have had a good academic experience studying at Padworth College. The teachers make it fun! My future plans are to study Engineering at university.”

“I enjoy studying Art at Padworth because I love expressing myself by drawing and it is a great experience to try new things, such as oil pains, water colours etc. This has helped develop my artistic skills. I am in Fison House and the good thing about being in a boarding house with my friends is that we always support each other whenever we need help. Even though I am not at home, I feel comfortable in this environment because of everyone here. I’ve been studying Art and hopefully this will relate to my future job positively. I am planning to work at a high brand vintage shop in Tokyo after leaving school. The good thing about this is that the shop has many foreign customers, so they are hiring people who can speak English / Chinese and also, it is a full-time job, which is perfect for me.”

”My academic experience has evolved a lot since I have been at Padworth and made me the focused and motivated person that I am today. As I am studying abroad, I can feel free outside my country and not have limitations with my ideas. Padworth is a very independent and international school and I enjoy the fact that there are a lot of people from different countries. This helps us make a connection with each other and improve our skills in terms of meeting and interacting with people from different cultures.”

”Padworth is an international school and the classes are small compared to other schools, which makes me feel more active and it is easier to ask questions during lessons. The teachers at Padworth take responsibility for me and the whole class, which has greatly helped my academic study. The subject teachers and my classmates provide a positive atmosphere allowing me to focus on both my studies and free time. This has enabled me to work hard and play hard! My future plan is to go to university in the UK.”
