Best Boarding Schools

There are approximately 500 independent boarding schools in the UK, covering the age range 7-18 with a very few also accepting children under the age of 7. In this section we cover five aspects of choosing a boarding school for your child.

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.

Find a boarding school – if you are looking at the top boarding school league tables, then clicking  on a school name will take you to the school’s details. If you want to find a school by area please use the Find a School section.
