Independent School Boarding

The cost of attending an independent boarding school has been on the rise for years now, but this doesn’t seem to affect parents’ appetite for it. It used to cost about £6,000 a year to send a child to school when independent schools were first introduced but today many of these institutions will charge upwards of £30,000 annually. Lots of parents would rather cut costs in other areas around the household but keep their children in these schools. What is it that they are after?
Independent boarding schools in the UK provide a quality of education that is unparalleled. If you want your child to easily get into one of the top universities you should be looking to get them into some of these schools – they feed directly into these institutions because they are able to help students get very high grades. According to statistics, nearly 50% of students who attended ISC member schools were able to achieve a mean grade of A in 2014.
Because these schools cost a lot of money they tend to provide top quality facilities which are a big advantage to any child. They are able to take learning outside the classroom and they can develop new hobbies and interests which will help them later in life. These schools also expose children to lots of art and culture – they visit and get to learn about art, history and music from Europe and around the world.
Because of the high quality of education provided by these institutions parents from around the world enrol their children and this provides a great learning environments – your child will be exposed to children from other cultures and they get to make lifelong friends.
The Cambridge Centre for Sixth Form Studies is one such school – it has an excellent curriculum, a diverse student body and great teachers. Find out more on
