Unique Opportunities

Many parents are interested in offering their children unique opportunities but often find it difficult to navigate what is available.

Learn & Experience can help and offer a unique service to international families.

We have an extensive knowledge of U.K., U.S. & Canadian Schools and are completely independent when recommending the right school for your child.

There are many different types of schools which suit all varieties of childrens’ characters.

We primarily work with Independent Boarding Schools but also have relationships Public Schools where homestay may be an option.

L&E want to get to know your child. Having attended an L&E programme or not, we make it our business to get to know what motivates and excites your child with an understanding of the goals of both parent and student.

1. Make an enquiry

When we receive your enquiry, we will contact you to ask for some information about your child. You will need to provide the basic details – name, date of birth, and gender – and we will also need to establish the year group you are applying for.

For international students, we also need to establish their level of English, so we can take this into account when looking for the best and most appropriate school.


We would like to interview both parent and children to understand the goals. This also helps us prepare the student for potential future entrance interviews. These can done on zoom.

To help us get to know your child fully and ultimately choose the right school it can be a good idea to attend one of our L&E programmes. This is not compulsory but highly recommended as it gives us a unique opportunity to get to know your child and also get them used to the rigours of UK or Canadian school life.  This is invaluable to be able to choose the right school.  We can provide an assessment of your child to take forward to the chosen schools.

2. Provide references

We will require school reports, and a school reference, along with a personal statement written by the student. This personal statement plays an important role in placement, as schools like to see the student’s level of written English, and to find out a bit more about the child.

3. Find the right school

We will then search for some schools that meets your criteria, and will send a school profile of his suggestions to you to read through and digest. If you have any questions about the school at this point, we will be able to help you by phone or email. When you are happy with the school choice, we do ask that you return to Learn and Experience to apply for a place at the school, so that we can continue to help you with our valuable knowledge and experience.

4. Guardianship / Homestays

Learn & Experience can provide Guardianships/Homestays for International students who may be attending a UK, US or Canadian School or learning english for a shorter period of time. The students stay within the welcoming atmosphere of a host family where they have every opportunity to improve their English in an informal environment.  Our Host Families, who are regularly inspected, have many years experience of hosting students ranging in age from 11 – 17 years.

A Learn & Experience Host Family will ensure that all the needs of your child are met and offers parents peace of mind and security in the knowledge that there is always someone there to give a helping hand. Our UK, US & Canadian Guardianship programme offers a total care package from day one of a student’s stay in the UK, US or Canada and throughout their study period.
