State Boarding at Sexey’s School for Hong Kong BNO holders interested in a top UK Education
The Hong Kong BN(O) Visa route opened for applications on 31st January 2021, allowing Hongkongers with BNO status to live, work and study in the UK for up to five years. State education is included in this application, resulting in many parents considering relocating to the UK and reviewing the UK education plan for their children.
Similarly, Hong Kong residents that hold a UK passport may consider a British education for their children at a top UK boarding school.

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.
