Boarding schools in the West of England

Find and compare boarding schools in the Central and West areas of England, including Bath & North-East Somerset, Bristol, Buckinghamshire, Gloucestershire, North Somerset, Oxfordshire, West Berkshire and Wiltshire.

You will find all schools with boarding facilities in this region 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, sixth form colleges, or find 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.  

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 and John Catt's Preparatory Schools. We hope you find the perfect school for your child!
