have continued to take place at Chilton Cantelo School and much more work has been done during the last few months with the support of parent company Cognita. The school has installed

five brand new classrooms and re-structured and refurbished the boarding facilities. Once again,


Chilton Cantelo School achieved outstanding results in 2010’s GCSE examinations. Feedback from the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) was extremely positive with the report highlighting the high level of academic achievement and the “excellent” personal development of pupils. As part of the on-going development plan for the school a sixth form is also proposed. Starting at £2,550 the fees represent fantastic value for money and with increased extra-curricular opportunities and national success both individually and collectively over the last couple of years, it is an exciting time to be a pupil at Chilton.

SHEBBEAR College continues in its belief that it is the ‘Best small school in the south-west’ and is continuing to build on its already impressive infrastructure. Recent years have seen improvements right across the school. Not only have all of the school’s teaching areas been subject to considerable investment but the addition of a full size all-weather pitch as well as a professional standard cardiovascular suite; dance studio and weights room, have ensured that the sporting facilities are exceptional. Work has started on the new build onto the existing Junior School with the addition of an assembly hall, and three new classrooms due to open in September 2011. The Kindergarten has been redeveloped and now boasts one of the best facilities in the south-west. On the music front a new Recital Room will complement the already-successful choir and the music technology lab is benefiting from the addition of 22 new Apple Mac computers.

education available will differ from country to country and often from one part of a country to another. The opportunity for a child to be educated in a different system and a different culture can have tremendous advantages, but you will have to weigh up carefully the advantages and disadvantages. Before you decide to take your

child overseas you must contact CEAS who will advise you on the type of schools and funding available in that country and whether the educational provision is of a high enough standard. Education

overseas can

roughly divided into four different types as listed below.

■ Service Children’s Education (SCE) SCE provides schools in parts

of Germany, Cyprus, Belize, the Falkland Islands, Gibraltar and Brunei.

SCE schools follow the English

■ International Schools These are independent schools which can sometimes be found in non English-speaking countries. These schools cater for the

international community and the main language is usually English. The curriculum sometimes

follows the same pattern as in England but other systems may be followed.

If there is an International school close to where you are posted you may be able to claim an allowance to help with fees. If

After a brief welcome from Capt Morley in the Command Planning Room, the cadets were divided into two groups and embarked on tours of the ship: one before and the second after lunch. Cadets were very impressed with the sophisticated facilities in the Combined Operation Room and lingered on the bridge with the automated plotting table fed from GPS as well as the old chart and compass methods. The second part of the visit took them to the flight deck, the weapon system and the dock below where it was easy to imagine LCUs
