A year in review - Our boarding school visits

Over the last year, we have been privileged to visit many boarding schools. It’s one of the highlights of our job and enables our expert consultancy team to share the most up-to-date insights and advice, to help our parent clients when choosing the right boarding school for their child.

In the words of our Founder, Catherine Stoker; ‘‘We truly value our close working relationships with the Heads and admissions teams at many British boarding schools, enabling us to open doors to the best schools for each individual child and family we work with. Keeping our knowledge and relationships current via a comprehensive schedule of visits to boarding schools saves parents precious time and confusion during the research phase of their boarding school choice journey.’

As 2023 draws to a close, we’d like to take a moment to recap on the warm welcome we have received from many boarding schools and to say a huge thank you to all the Heads and admissions teams for making us so welcome.

Our interviews with boarding school Heads in Doris the Defender have been a real highlight in 2023 and her diary of boarding school visits is already filling up for 2024. The red carpet reception Doris received at Loughborough Grammar School when Catherine interviewed the Head, Helen Foster, about the school's exceptional sporting programme, was a true highlight.

We are looking forward to an extensive programme of school visits in 2024. Look out for our school reviews which will appear in the Parent Hub of our website. Keep an eye out for Doris the Defender on the road and follow our social media for updates through the year. #whereisdoris
