UK Boarding Schools in Scotland and the North for International Students

The United Kingdom is one of the leading countries in the world for education and boasts some of the best schools and colleges for international students. If you’re considering educating yourself in the UK, then the Anglo Education Service can help! We’ve reviewed a number of the schools in Scotland and the North that we deal with and who are always on the look out for international students – Angloed can help you get there and mentor you through the whole process.

Loreto School

Scotland’s oldest boarding school, Loretto is set in 85 acres of leafy campus just outside Edinburgh, and is the home to boarding and day pupils. This leading Scottish private boarding school provides an all-round education for just over 600 boys and girls aged 3-18. Loretto is well known for its emphasis on the development of the whole person, mind, body and spirit. This UK boarding school is made up of two parts – the Junior School (3-12 years) and the Senior School (aged 12 and over).


Set in its own fifty acre estate of outstanding natural beauty, Barnard Castle school provides a high quality and safe boarding and day education to boys and girls who are encouraged to reach their maximum potential in a happy and purposeful environment. Barnard Castle School has recently invested £500,000 in new boarding facilities to make them some of the best in the northeast. Pupils have attended Barnard Castle School from Chile, India, Japan and Hong Kong.


Giggleswick is a co-educational day and boarding school situated in the stunning rural location of the Yorkshire Dales, within walking distance of the popular market town of Settle, and just over an hour from both Leeds and Manchester. The Senior School is large enough to offer a wide variety of teaching and learning opportunities, but small enough to offer close tutorial support, small classes and opportunities for everyone to get into teams or to take part in music, art, drama, outdoor pursuits, and all the other activities they offer.

FylingFyling Hall is located in one of the most stunning parts of the country where pupils feel safe and can enjoy the benefits of a rural education. The school has ponies and theatre, sports hall and woods overlooking the sea. Climbing, horse riding, also singing, sculpting and dancing – you name it, because a Fyling Hall education ranges far beyond the curriculum. With the moors above and the sea below, small classes and a mass of exciting activities, this is an idyllic place for a child to learn, grow and enjoy life to the full.

There’s lots of other schools to choose from, so why not get in touch with Angloed about these or any others, and we can help make your dreams of studying the UK come true. Just fill out our enquiry form here and we’ll be back in touch with you very shortly and guide you through the whole process!
