Care. In boarding schools, there are housekeepers and cleaning aunts to help take care of the students, but one caregiver is facing many students, so naturally, they cannot provide perfect care, but when the day students return to their boarding schools, the boarding parents will take care of them personally (of course, they also have to help with housework and learn to take care of others), and this love is unimaginable for boarding students.
Proper space. For day school students, the time after class is their own, so it is not a bad choice to go back to their host families and enjoy their own time and schedule for themselves. In addition, boarding students often have to share their rooms with others, but day students are bound to have their own single rooms, which can be carefully decorated to create their own space.
Home away from Home. In addition to having a group of classmates that you met while studying in the UK, spending a lot of time with your host family also gives you a second home in the UK, and many of our students have become lifelong friends with their host families.
Meals. Four words to sum it up: "better food". The food at boarding schools is not too bad, but...you know, it's always better to have choices, and host families sometimes take students out to eat, or accommodate students' tastes, which is the envy of boarding school students. Homestay families will also teach students cooking skills, so students can taste their own dishes.
Of course, there are also boys' schools, girls' schools, and co-educational schools, in addition to day schools and boarding schools. Earlier, I attended a GDST (Girls' Day School Trust) event and heard some of the additional benefits of attending a girls' day school, and I have listed six points for parents' reference
There are no male students in the girls' school, so girls spend less time on dressing and makeup and can concentrate on their studies.
Without the influence of the opposite sex's gaze, girls are more likely to actively participate in school sports and competitions.
In an environment without boys, girls do not choose to participate in feminine activities because of their subjective feelings.
Most traditional girls' schools organize co-curricular activities, giving girls more opportunities to expand their social circles
Data shows that the academic performance of female students in girls' schools is on average better than that of girls in mixed schools
There is no intra-school comparison of "boys are better at science and girls are better at arts" and students are free to choose their subjects
According to the Independent schools' GCSE results 2019 by The Daily Telegraph, nearly ten of the top 100 secondary schools are GDST schools, which is a clear indication of their strength.
