Top boarding schools near London

The most popular and prestigious boarding schools in London and Greater London

Boarding schools are schools where children can study and live. Boarding in the UK may be full, weekly and flexible/occasional. Full boarding means that the students come in the beginning of the term and only leave in the end of it with an exceate in the middle. Weekly boarding is for those children who prefer to go home for the weekend, usually leaving on Friday evening or Saturday morning and coming back on Sunday evening. Flexible boarding is a mix of both full and weekly. Some schools also give an option of occasional boarding, which is a solution for those parents who may occasionally be away and thus have a possibility to leave their child at the care of the schools for a few days or weeks.


There are approximately 500 boarding schools in the UK but this page only introduces the most sought-after boarding schools in London and near it ( the list of the most prestigious day schools in London can be found here)
