Picture this...

You’re writing a letter to your child. It highlights all the reasons you’re choosing a British boarding school education. What are your hopes for their future and the opportunities they’ll have to become the best version of themselves?

You might be feeling…


Making one of the most important decisions of your life leads to worry about getting the choice wrong.


Google, magazines, league tables, school websites, dinner party discussion, family history – all this information can lead to feeling confused.


Not knowing where to find reliable, independent, expert advice and support can lead to a feeling of frustration.

In this Online Parent Questionnaire, with 6 BONUS FACTSHEETS from our series of '12 Suggested Schools For...'

I’m going to teach you:

A simple process to help you map out what the right boarding school for your child looks like.

  • How to ask the right questions to prompt discussion and consideration of your child’s interests, passions, character, and career goals.
  • How to consider other factors that affect the decision, such as siblings, location, logistics, family life and your own parent life story.
  • How to kickstart your research with confidence via 6 x 12 = 72 Suggested Schools For…
  • How quality independent advice via a step-by-step approach, gives you the knowledge you need to focus on your child as the celebrity with confidence.

In my experience over many years of working with parents, much of their confusion comes from not first taking time to decide exactly what you’re looking for in the right school.

It comes from making the mistake of listening to what’s right for children of friends and family, instead of making your child the celebrity of the process.

Don’t make these mistakes for your child.

What will be the outcome for you?

  • Confusion becomes clarity.
  • You’ll become well-informed and reassured.
  • You’ll feel confident you have the well-considered reasons behind making the right choice.

What will be the outcome for your child?

  • Right school choice
  • Happy child.
  • Who will maximise their opportunities.
  • And fulfill their potential

You’ve put your child at the heart of your British boarding school choice process.
