Cost of State Boarding

As a state boarding school parents only pay the cost of boarding as education is covered by the state. This means that rather than paying £25,000+ a year for an independent boarding school, you will pay around £11,000/year (plus extras such as school uniform, music lessons and school trips). A BNO Visa allows access to a UK state education if parents are resident in the UK.



Arrange a Visit
