London Parents Forum

INTO British Boarding | Full family relocations

16 November 2021, 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Further information:

At this Parents Forum webinar we met a group of international boarders and then discussed what parents need to consider if they plan to relocate their families to the UK.

In the first half of this session we met teenagers from the Middle and Far East who are currently attending top British curriculum schools. In a live link-up we talked to them about why they chose to attend these schools, how they settled in, and how they are supported by their families.

In the second half we turned to practical arrangements. Experts from Barratt London and Charles Russell Speechlys discussed property investments and the visa, legal and tax arrangements you should consider when relocating your family to the UK.

  • Stuart Leslie talked us through Barratt London's Western Circus development, and we discussed why the market in London is now so strong for new build properties.
  • Kelvin Tanner, a partner at the London law firm Charles Russell Speechlys, gave a short presentation on the immigration route for students in the UK and some alternative options where their family will also be moving or seeking to spend time with them in the UK.

In September we also considered this topic, looking at setting up a home-from-home when boarding school is a long distance away.
