State boarding schools provide free education for our pupils, but charge fees for boarding. State Boarding is often cited as ‘Education’s Best Kept Secret’! State Boarding provides boarding education at a fee level that is much more affordable to families. This is possible because the education is government funded and parents only pay for the boarding aspect of their education.

This does not mean a compromise on quality. Pupils have enriching boarding and academic experiences that successfully prepare them for further education and the world of work.

Charities such as Buttle UK or the Royal National Children’s Foundation can sometimes help with the cost of boarding.
