Private Schools In The UK, The Better Alternative For Your Children

The United Kingdom has a tradition of renowned private schools and prep schools. Some of those independent schools are even known across borders. Families from as far away as Asia or Saudi Arabia sent their children to private schools in the United Kingdom to ensure they can get the best education possible.

private-schools-ukWhile one may immediately think that private schools will always be a domain for the rich only, there are prep schools in the UK that can be a great alternative to public schools even for your own children.

Increasingly more families in the UK choose private schools since they finally have realised how the public school system is not always optimal when it comes to their children’s education.

No surprise seeing that classroom sizes in public schools can often exceed 40 children. The sheer number of pupils will often make it impossible that teachers can dedicate to individual children.

Then there are those families who want to ensure that their children are taking care of in the best way possible. Especially for single parents or when both are working, this can often be a problem. With private and independent schools in the UK you will always know that you children are in good hands, not only in the classroom but also in their free time.

I personally recommend this local prep school in Hertfordshire, the renowned Kingshottschool. It should be high on your list of options if you look for recommended UK schools in Hertfordshire.

Storing Your Private Data

The recent hack of Apple’s iCloud where many celebrity’s often very private photographs had been hacked and then spread all over the Internet again brings into the spotlight the question about how to best store your private and sensitive data.

celebs-yell-at-cloudWould you really want to upload sensitive material to a third party provider, even if they claim they are as secure as it can be?

What about your company’s sensitive data such as passwords or customer information?

In my opinion, you cannot rely on and depend on any third-party service even if they claim they are the most secure on this planet.

The unforeseen can always happen, whether it is hackers targeting a company or a data storage firm going bankrupt while all your sensitive data is out there.

Common sense says that you should never store your most private data in the cloud but have them secured locally, maybe on your very own backup hard drives locked up in a old-fashioned safe. While this may not sound very high-tech to you still the best way to make sure that your invaluable data won’t fall into the wrong hands.

An example of this would be always important forms for customs where it is always critical that they are complete and up-to-date.
