What to pack for boarding school

With the summer coming to an end, children starting boarding school in the new term are starting to think about their packing.

Schools typically send out their official uniform list, but it is often the items that are NOT on these lists which are the most useful to your child.

As guardian to many children throughout the UK, Academic Families are often asked to buy last minute items for students which they didn’t know to bring with them.

Getting ready for boarding school in the UK

We have prepared two lists of the items that will help children settle into their new boarding school life.  The first list details some items we suggest you bring from home and the 2nd list covers items which may be easier for your guardian to buy and have ready for you when you arrive in the UK.
