Gabbitas China visit covered by The Times

07 June 2013

Gabbitas was thrilled to feature heavily in The Times this week, after the top broadsheet reported extensively on their recent visit by Chinese parents.

Gabbitas hosted 35 parents who flew in from China especially to see some of the country's top independent schools, including Eton College, Kingswood School and The Royal High School in Bath.

The article, featured in The Times 2 section on Monday, quoted parents, teachers and Gabbitas Managing Director, Ian Hunt, on the success of the trip and the allure of British independent schools.

Ian is quoted as saying, "A lot of the parents have a belief that the Chinese system is failing their children. It is too formalised, too narrow in perspective. The British system offers independent learning and leadership skills, creativity and problem solving, public speaking and debating."
