The last on Gina’s most recent itinerary of visits was a very small and friendly English boarding school where everyone knows everyone.

One of King’s Bruton School’s highlights is the fantastic hockey provision and reputation. Full of old-world charm but also forward-looking, work has just started on the development of a brand-new music centre.

If you would like more information about this, or any of the other boarding schools in England we recommend, please do contact us.

On her next batch of visits to some of our British boarding schools, it was a return to Oxford for Gina. She and the business used to be based in this beautiful, historic home of education, so she knows St Clare’s well already, but it was great to catch up with key staff and the latest developments.

Offering Pre-IB, the IB Diploma and other 6th Form courses, this is an international college in a quintessentially English setting.
