1 Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland & the North
From the heart of England to Scotland's northern shores parents will find schools offering education that is seven days a week; the very best of boarding. Campuses set in rugged landscape, rolling hills or Wordsworth's Lakes where pupils achieve excellent exam results whilst being in the perfect setting for those who find the tempo of London school life either stifling or pressured.
When families want to meet journey times can be so much less than imagined. Motorways, train stations and airports connect home and school or, when combined with the hotels and B & B that abound in scenic places, can make a weekend visit a mini-holiday.
