Boarding schools in Northern Ireland

Are you looking for a boarding school in Northern Ireland? Search here to find and compare independent Northern Irish boarding schools.

You will find all schools with boarding facilities in Northern Ireland listed at the bottom of this page. You can also use the filters in the box below to narrow down your boarding school search: you can select boys' schools or girls' schools, prep schools, senior schools or sixth form colleges, or find and compare the nearest boarding school to you with our postcode search.

Click on a school's name for more information. Those boarding schools with full profiles appear at the top of the listings in highlighted panels. Some schools provide links to their social media and you can also watch school videos.

Many boarding schools are members of the Boarding Schools' Association, which is a good source of advice for families looking for more information about boarding. You can also seek advice about independent education from a number of associations and organisations.

We also have a number of articles about boarding and independent schools, and you may find this one particularly useful: 'The advantages of a boarding school education', by Mike Brewer, Deputy Head of EF Academy Torbay.

These search results are from www.schoolsearch.co.uk, the online guide to independent schools in the UK, in partnership with John Catt's Which School? guidebook, first published in 1924. We hope you find the perfect school for your child!
