Best known for...

Surfing is at the core of Kingsley DNA
Surfing is part of the curriculum, so every student will get in the water and experience the benefit of surfing. Students learn the basics of water knowledge, water confidence and surfing. There are also options for pupils to take things a step further by joining the school's one-of-a-kind Surf Academy.

The Earth Centre
Environmental sustainability is the cornerstone of a Kingsley education – making the world a better place. It is seen as more than just an ethos or a philosophy, it is an integral part of Kingsley’s academic curriculum (inside the classroom) and expansive curriculum (outside the classroom).

Choosing the best education for your child leads many families to consider British schools and universities. However, it is not an easy decision to make.

Our team works hard to understand the needs and strengths of your child, match them to the UK boarding school best suited to their needs, and support them throughout their time in the UK.

Quality you can trust

Academic Families has personal and professional experience with boarding schools. Many of our staff attended boarding schools themselves when they were young or have worked in them. We have all lived overseas and most of us are mothers, so we understand how important it is to find the very best education for every child no matter where that might be in the world.

From our headquarters in Edinburgh to our local staff across the UK, our team regularly visits hundreds of British schools. Our excellent knowledge of the UK education system, accreditation by the Boarding School Association (BSA) and certification from the British Council means we understand UK boarding education from the inside and out, and know how to ensure the best education for each child.

In addition, our guardianship service has been Gold accredited by AEGIS (the Association for the Education and Guardianship of International Students) since 2016 and also by the BSA, so you know, with Academic Families, you're guaranteed to have the best local support anywhere in the UK.

Moreover, our team are trained MHFA Mental Health First Aiders so we are qualified to support our students with any wellbeing and mental health concerns.
