The Boarding Schools’ Association (BSA) is the largest association of boarding schools in the world, representing more than 600 independent and state boarding schools, over 500 of which are based in the UK. Its mission is to champion boarding and promote boarding excellence.

The BSA and its member schools want to work with the best education agents and consultants, and its Certified Agent Scheme is a mark of professional quality, so we are delighted to announce we are now proud members of the scheme.

We seem to be so often celebrating the many successes of the British boarding schools we are proud to recommend, you might think we’d be in danger of becoming blasé. No fear when we receive a rundown of annual achievements like the one we’ve just had from Oakham School. We are delighted to report the School has won not one, not two but FOUR national awards in one year!
