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.
Choosing the best school for your child with specific opportunities, however, can be no easy task. We offer boarding school advice throughout the research and application process for a new school. Get in touch with our team to find out more.
Many schools 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. All these factors mean that there is plenty to consider when choosing the best school for your child.
