British boarding schools have always had a strong reputation, not only for academic excellence but also for supporting those with a particular sporting passion, with ambitions to excel. Whether your child has a passion for athletics, rowing, tennis, golf, rugby, football, riding, fly fishing or cricket, there are independent schools in the UK with the coaching expertise and facilities to nurture that talent.
Finding the right school with specific opportunities, however, can be no easy task. We offer support throughout the research and application process for a new school.
Many of the top boarding schools in the UK now offer the opportunity to join specific talented sporting programmes, with access not only to top-class coaches but nutritional advice, as well as physiotherapy, strength, conditioning, and fitness programmes, specific to individual sports. Alumni who are household sporting names are often linked to the development of sporting academies and summer holiday coaching programmes. Significant investment has been made in state-of-the-art sporting facilities that have been creeping up country-wide in recent years. Schools are proud of their sporting traditions- signed representative team shirts for a variety of home nations proudly adorn sports hall walls.
