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.
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.
Finding the right school despite your child’s passions, talents and career ambitions is no easy task. So, to ensure you’re applying to the right boarding school for your child, working with one of our education consultants is the most secure way to be confident you’re on the right track.
