About the school

The University of Stirling estate is considered one of the safest campuses in the United Kingdom and all students are supervised 24 hours a day.

Students live in some of the most modern and comfortable student accommodation in the world.

All of students have a bedroom to themselves, which includes their own toilet, shower and place to study. As the course is for 3 weeks, we find students appreciate their own space and clean bathroom. That being said, they are only in their rooms to sleep, as the Summer School schedule keeps them busy throughout the day

  • We will approach those schools on your behalf
  • We work with you through the full process, help with admission procedures and stay with you until your children finish their boarding school education.
