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.

From Oxford, Gina headed south west to Somerset, starting in Wells. This historic city’s Cathedral School has long been renowned for its music offering, with a long tradition of educating the choristers.

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.

Gina’s mini Midlands odyssey took her from Uppingham to Oakham School, another traditional, English boarding school, founded in 1584 in the historic market town of Oakham near Rutland Water. As well as A Levels, the school has been offering the IB Diploma for 15 years now, and ca. 25% of its IB candidates achieve 40 points or more!

On Gina’s recent visit to the famous British boarding school, Uppingham, she was impressed by the brand-new Science Centre and well-equipped Sports Centre. The creative arts are also well supported, with excellent provision for Art and Theatre, while Music is woven into the very fabric of the school community. Central to school life are the 15 boarding houses, each with its own dining room, as Uppingham is 99% boarding!

When we collected Johanna from Oxford at the end of March, we decided to combine business and pleasure by spending a couple of days in the area to get to know that wonderful city a bit better. We also visited the heartachingly beautiful Blenheim Palace and its grounds.

We are constantly impressed by the range of activities and opportunities that our fabulous British boarding schools offer the young people they educate.
One which recently caught the eye is the Young Enterprise programme, which saw Year 12 girls at Malvern St James Girls’ School set up two companies with two very different aims and end products.
