Find the right British
boarding school for your child

British schools have a reputation for bringing out the best in each individual student, enabling them to achieve their full potential, whilst finding their own way in life.

However, not every school will be right for every child. In addition to academic and geographical considerations, British boarding schools boast a wide variety of extra-curricular activities; some are single-sex and others are co-educational; some will specialise in Sport and others will place more emphasis on Art or perhaps have a long-standing reputation in Music or Drama.

And with a multitude of reputable independent schools in Britain to choose from, selecting the best match can be a daunting task!
