There are many benefits to a boarding-school education, from the co-curricular activities to the community spirit. Watch our videos and use our tools to find the right boarding school for your child.

Where to begin?

Boarding schools come in many different shapes and sizes, with different admissions points, academic and co-curricular programmes and house structures. We talk you through the key points to bear in mind when starting your search.

Post-pandemic, many boarding schools are reporting increased interest from parents looking for an immersive experience for their children, to make up for lost time at school and with friends. We asked Robin Fletcher, Chief Executive of the Boarding Schools’ Association, which represents more than 600 schools in 37 countries around the world, to give us his perspective on the benefits of boarding.
