Our Advice Service for Parents

For most parents, we can offer our expert and impartial assistance to find the best-fitting boarding schools for your child's unique needs and aspirations. We offer a comprehensive service from the initial consultation, and aim to develop a deep understanding of you and your child's requirements. We only recommend schools which offer the best academic and personal fit, and where your child has a good chance of successfully receiving an offer. We manage all communications with schools, arrange visits, and mentor your child towards receiving offers  from your preferred options.  

If you already have target schools in mind, we can help develop and manage a strategy which will give your child the best possible chance of winning a place. 

Our clients find we save them an inordinate amount of stress, and prevent them wasting time and money on fruitless research or unsuitable visits or applications. Please read some of our client testimonials.

Best Boarding School League Tables – transfer to this section to view the top boarding senior schools tables listed separately by category; boys', girls' , co-educational and IB. The tables rank schools purely by A level, GCSE or IB performance.

For schools which do not meet the top 100 threshold, their grades (but not a ranking) may be found in their profile in the Find a School section if we have obtained them. If the boarding school does not offer A levels (because they end at 11, 13 or 16) they are not included in the rankings. We only include schools with at least 20% boarders or a minimum of 50 boarders in the boarding school lists. We feel it is unsatisfactory if there are fewer than 50 boarders in a school over the weekend.

If you are looking at the top boarding school league tables, then clicking  on a school name will take you to the school’s profile. If you want to find a specific school by name, or just search by location, please use the Find a School  section.
