Expat parents – Moving from international school to UK boarding school

We are one of the very few education consultancies who do not receive any commissions from boarding schools in return for parent recommendations, so you can rest assured that our advice is truly independent and un-biased.

For most expat parents with young children placing them in international school while you are working overseas affords them a fantastic opportunity to learn about other countries, languages and cultures, broadening their view of world.

However, when children approach 11+, 13+ or 16+, many expat parents start to review their school options with a view to either moving the family back to the UK or choosing a boarding school in the UK while remaining overseas.

Unpredictable contract lengths means boarding can offer stability and security in schooling once your child reaches the more serious end of education, even if the family home may well have to move at the drop of a hat!

Our team of consultants has years of experience supporting expat families with planning their future school choices, often working with families for up to two years prior to any school move, to ensure they are ‘in the system’ and on the right path in plenty of time. We can even set up Skype interview coaching and tutoring to support your child with the 11+, 13+ or sixth form entry process.

Whether you are relocating back to the UK and would like to review state and independent day school options within commuting  distance of London or remaining overseas, so considering your boarding school options, we are the right team of experts to help you.

You are welcome to chat to one of our consultants for an hour over Skype, just to check you have not missed any potential school options. Alternatively, if you need our help to review schools, book visit appointments and/or support you with the entire planning and application process, we have the right independent expertise to advise and support you.

For an informal discussion about your individual requirements, please contact us.
