Boarding Schools in the UK

Over the next couple of weeks, we will be looking at top boarding schools in the UK.  For some families since their children have been in the womb their parents have endlessly debated whether boarding school is the right option for their children.

We will speak to different parents from different cultures over the next couple of months who have sent their children to boarding schools,  and why?

We will also speak to mothers and fathers who attended boarding schools themselves to discuss their thoughts about whether they would send their children to boarding school.

Here are the top 10 boarding schools for girls in the UK for 2013.  Check out the school fees too.  For those based in Dubai, one year at Wycombe Abbey will now set you back AED186,536 a year.

The question everyone wants to know, does it really add that much more value than a normal day school?
