Boarding Schools: Getting Help and Guidance | Part II

Where to Get Help

Educational Consultants
There are many people who can advise you about UK or North American private schools, and it is worth seeking guidance – this is, after all, one of the most important decisions you will make for your child. However, it is important to choose a consultant who really knows the full range of British or North American independent schools and the complicated admission procedures involved. Remember to ask them about things that you cannot find out from reading a school’s prospectus: whether the school is kind; what the pastoral care is like; does it run a house system and if so what are the benefits; does it cater well to special needs or learning support; will your child flourish academically there or drift to the bottom third of the academic group. Below are two education consultants that specifically work with Cayman families who you can touch base with.


School Fairs

Two school fairs take place in Grand Cayman each year offering parents the opportunity to meet representatives from various schools.

British Schools Fair

The British Schools Fair will be held on Saturday 2nd November 2019 from 2pm-6pm at the Marriott. The school representatives often spend a few days in Cayman on either side of this weekend and are happy to conduct school interviews or have a private meeting with you. For information on which schools usually visit, see

Caribbean School Fair

The Caribbean School Fair usually comprises the top US and Canadian boarding schools and is being held on Sunday 10th November 2019 at the Marriott Hotel from 4pm-6pm. About 40 schools usually attend. For more information please email Michael Walker on:





To start your research have a look at Clongowes Wood College in Ireland, Cottesmore School in England or Florida’s The Vanguard School.
