2 main types of schools


1 State Schools


Where the cost of education are covered by the government and the parents pays no fees. All children between the ages of 5 and 16 are entitled to a free place at a state school. Most state schools are day schools, but a very few have boarding facilities and for these the parents will have to pay the cost of boarding only.

2 Independent / Private Schools


Where the whole cost of education and boarding is paid by the parent. The fess for a boarding education in an independent school are normally the same for an overseas student as for a British
student, but there may be an additional charge for English language support for overseas students.
