Study at Private Boarding Schools in England, the finest boarding schools in Europe

For generations, England has been recognised as having the finest private boarding schools in Europe. The schools have built up excellent reputations based on strong traditions and very high standards which prove very attractive to students and their parents.

Many private schools in England achieve exceptional academic success, whilst others specialise in either music, sports, drama and arts or special needs.

Catering for all student abilities

It is often people's impression that independent schools teach only highly academic children. For some high profile Public Schools this is correct but there are many schools offering education to more average ability students.

There are many reasons why parents choose to educate their children in private schools, among them private schools tend to offer smaller class sizes which can lead to increased attention for their child. Parents also consider there are benefits to be gained by mixing with other children from more wealthy families. Almost all schools have some form of selection process to ensure that pupils are suitable for the courses they offer.

Excellent pastoral care

All the private boarding schools we recommend provide excellent pastoral care in the form of house parents, matrons, and a tutor caring for each child. Life and the learning process is very structured for students with great care being taken to develop each child's social skills, as well as supporting them through all activities.

Exceptional facilities

There are hundreds of private boarding schools in England, many living up to the image of an impressive building in beautiful rural surroundings with exceptional facilities, including some with their own equestrian centre, farm or even a helicopter pad.

Securing a place for you

We have a very experienced and knowledge - based view of a large number of private schools that we have worked with over the years. Taking great care in understanding your child's needs we are able to suggest schools to really suit your child. After giving our recommendation to the school about your child we fully prepare them for the selection process, including the interview, at their chosen schools, thus giving them the best chance possible to secure a place.

Unlike other companies we do not charge an arrangement fee for our skill and administration in obtaining a suitable offer for a student.

Attending a private / independent school in England and living with a host family is an excellent way to benefit from private school education while experiencing life as an English teenager in a supportive family environment. This is ideal for students who desire private school education without the structure and regulation associated with living in a boarding house.

Our selected schools

For this experience we have selected a small number of special schools in larger towns offering private education to predominantly day school pupils, so our students do not feel different from the English students. These schools are enthusiastic about welcoming and integrating a small number of international students each year and offer exceptional facilities, some even with their own farm or riding stables.

This arrangement is ideal for students of any age, but especially around the age of 14 where classes smaller than those normally found in state schools is desired.

Visas

Visas are not necessary for EU students.
Visas for Non EU students are not always necessary where a student studies in the UK for less than 6 months. More information can be found at the UK Border Agency ( http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/ ). Where a visa is necessary the time taken to apply for this needs to be taken into account when considering start dates.
