"Finding a boarding school is a daunting task, especially, if like us, you've never had any dealings with such establishments before. Having been pointed in the direction of Anderson Education, the weight of responsibility fell away. Not only did they offer us some very sound advice, but they did so at 9pm on a Friday evening!" - Paul and Sue, Forces parents of two boarders.
