We have summarised what an application for an English boarding school stay with us looks like in a short film.

It is useful for us to have our application form before the meeting, but you can also send it in later. It can be completed online or downloaded as a PDF document that can be edited.

Step 4: Invitation to interview and visit

More info
  • After reviewing the application documents, several schools will invite your child to a
    personal or online interview
  • We recommend travelling to the UK and visiting three boarding schools 
  • We will be happy to co-ordinate the interviews with headmasters, teachers and houseparents for you and send your child some tips for the interviews in advance. You will also receive some tips for hotels or Bed & Breakfasts close to the schools from us.
  • Some schools already require the completed Registration Form at this point of the application.

Step 5: Testing and place offers

More info

Some schools offer places based just on the interviews, others require a written test. If a place is offered directly, then you only have to:

  • complete the school's Registration Form and pay a one-off registration fee of approximately £100-300
  • receive the official Offer Letter including Acceptance Forms and Terms & Conditions. With the return of the signed forms and payment of a deposit (between  £1,000 and up to a full term's fees) enrolment is completed.

If entrance tests are required, then you have to register your child (see above) and organise invigilation of the entrance tests (through your local school or a lawyer/notary). The test papers are emailed directly to the test invigilator by the British boarding school. If the test scores are satisfactory, your child will be offered a place at the school (see above).

You're nearly done! Now you only have some admin left:

  • The school asks you for further forms such as a Medical Form, an IT Policy and sends its School Rules and Boarding Handbook.
  • You need to apply for your child's visa (for stays longer than six months).
  • You need to order the school uniform
  • Pack your suitcase and off you go!
