The Boarding Schools’ Association represents around 500 boarding schools in the UK and overseas and provides a wide range of services including professional development, government relations, communications, media, publications, conferences and events.
This guide is an important part of BSA’s services and we hope you find it useful and of value.
The Guide covers all aspects of boarding education, including funding, selecting a school, academic success, extra-curricular opportunities, schools that specialise in art, music or dance, schools for children with special educational needs and disabilities, and sixth-form choices. You will find information about the range of boarding options: full, weekly, flexible – and the variety of schools – boys only, girls only and co-educational. Each child and each family will be looking for something different in a boarding school and we have aimed to include information on the whole gamut of provision. UK boarding schools lead the world in the quality of education and pastoral care they provide. We hope this Guide provides an excellent start to your search for the right school for your child.
