Choosing a UK Boarding School

Although many Boarding Schools appear to be quite similar when browsing their websites or prospectuses, in reality each has a unique character and different qualities. Choosing a UK Boarding School doesn’t have to be difficult.

Understanding what each Boarding school offers and whether that school will be right for your child is where we can offer impartial help and guidance.

Whilst we will always want to discuss your requirements with you in detail there are some simple steps to consider to ensure a smooth process:

The first steps in UK Boarding School selection:

  • Plan the boarding school selection as far in as advance as possible, 18 months would be an ideal amount of time. A rushed decision is rarely a good one.
  • Identify what sort of school best suits your child, single sex? Co-Educational? Sports Academy? Academically Selective? All Rounder?
  • Recognise what special requirements your child might have and what provision is required.
  • Location? Near to major transport hubs? London Airports?
  • Inform your current school, the Headmaster or Principal may be asked to provide a reference
  • Provide copies of the most recent school reports available
  • Visit – While we can offer great advice we would always recommend visiting prospective Boarding Schools if at all possible, always during term time so that they can be seen ‘in action’.
