The British School System is one of the most sought after educational systems in the world. Britain’s oldest school was founded in 1382 therefore the history of educational excellence in our school system is unrivalled. Boarding schools in the UK offer a meeting point between a traditional education and a modern focus on the individual student. With state-of-the-art facilities and a personal approach to education, each school can cater to both academic high-achievers and students with broad extra-curricular interests.

What make British boarding schools truly special is their commitment to innovation, personal development and boarding life:


Entrepreneurship is no longer reserved for adults. With established programmes such as Young Enterprise and a culture of innovation, interested 11-18 year olds can get a head start in the world of business. In 2021, Winchester College launched their entrepreneurship hub (Makyth Ventures) and awarded funding to a student to pursue the development of their own ion thruster.

Personal Development

At a British boarding school, there is ample opportunity to pursue and excel in any interest. Schools’ dedicated language centres commonly fill classes with students studying Japanese, Chinese, and Arabic. There’s always a buzz around internal school competitions in art, public speaking, general knowledge and sports. This level of performance can rival nationwide events. There are lots of opportunities for students to compete, showcase their abilities and challenge one another. There is an array of external competitions from polo, to science olympiads and Oxbridge essay competitions.

Boarding Life

The boarding house is at the heart of school life. It offers many of the home comforts some students might fear they’ll miss. This often hosts their students for breakfast, lunch and dinner and it is a place to regroup, recentre and recuperate during the busy school day. Tutors, matrons and other staff on site to provide pastoral support for the students when they need a helping hand.
