About Us


The education of each and every child is one of the most important decisions we make, time spent in early exploration and research is wise. Families living overseas are looking for reassurance that their children will achieve their full potential, in a happy, safe, secure environment. Working closely with the team at Anderson Education, the boarding school specialists, ensures free help and advice and peace of mind.  We understand that this is a difficult, often emotional and important financial decision a family has to make, particularly when you are living thousands of miles away from the UK.  Please remember we are here to help you every step of the way and are always available to answer your questions.
