Waypoints is the organiser of The British Education and Schools Show in Asia. BESSA is Asia’s most prestigious British education fair showcasing many of the top boarding schools in the UK. In line with our philosophy of finding the best fit of school for every child, BESSA is free and open to the public. Exhibitors at BESSA are only a handful of the many exhibiting schools that Waypoints knows and has seen its students enter – however, it is an excellent opportunity to get informed about the UK boarding school system. At BESSA, attendees can:
- Find out how to navigate the application process for each school, learn about their unique strengths and speak to current pupils about their experiences.
- Attend our speaker programme and get advice from the experts on key issues and recent updates in the education landscape.
- Meet schools admission directors face-to-face. Drop by a booth or use the online appointment booking system when you register for tickets.
- Get professional support from experienced tutors to prepare for entrance tests and interviews, special needs advisors, guardianship companies and summer courses.
In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, BESSA Live was launched – the world’s first digital UK boarding school show. With a full hall of 17 exhibitors, visitors are able to head into virtual booths and meet 1:1 with admission directors, take virtual tours and explore the world of British boarding through videos and photos. They can also watch presentations by expert speakers on key topics. Waypoints is proud to be making research for your child’s education and future easier, from the comfort of your home.
