Fair’s platform for top overseas schools
Schools from the United States, Britain and Canada are to be showcased tomorrow at the International Schools Fair Bermuda in the Hamilton Princess.
Founder and organiser Tory Dodge teamed up with Niall Browne, of UK-based BvS Education, to co-ordinate close to 90 junior and senior schools, as well as a selection of schools offering learning support from both sides of the Atlantic.
The fair also includes a team of 13 of Canada's top-ranked boarding schools in a group organised by Canadian Accredited Independent Schools.
CAIS schools cover a range of options across Canada, from boys' and girls' schools, co-ed, urban, and rural, International Baccalaureate and Advanced Placement programmes, which will send representatives to meet with local parents.
Ms Dodge said it had made sense to combine a range of school types into a single event. According to Mr Browne, last year's number of visitors to the fair was the highest so far.
The fair runs until Thursday, from 4pm to 8pm each day.
School heads and directors of admission will deliver information sessions, while Bermudian students will be able to arrange to sit the UK independent schools entry test from September 20 to 26.
A second year of partnership with British Airways means that the fair has secured special rates and conditions for Bermudian families travelling to schools in the UK.
