Our Services

The UK Boarding Schools team runs a number of services that are free for you to use.


What do we do?

Our service is simple (and free). We represent nearly 300 boarding schools in the UK and have visited and toured all of them. As we are also parents, when visiting a school we pay particular attention to the quality of the boarding facilities, security, atmosphere and ethos as well as any specialist facilities (sport, art, science etc…). In most cases we have met the Head, the Admissions staff and key boarding staff, and even eaten in the school dining hall and so we are uniquely placed to select the best schools based on your needs.

Our involvement is usually a match making service rather than a full agency, therefore we do not get involved in any financial negotiations, or visa issues. Using an extensive questionnaire we then take the key details with regards to your child/children and approach the most appropriate schools on your behalf. We ask that the school then contact you in person and that they send  information on the school,  so that you can begin to evaluate which of the schools is the best match for your child/ children. We would suggest you try to visit at least two of your favourites so you can see at first-hand what you are buying into.

Of course, we are on hand to answer questions about any particular school (if you feel you would like an impartial opinion).
