What to pack for boarding school

If you have a child starting boarding school soon, then you’ve probably already 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 that they needed to bring with them.

We have prepared two lists of the items that students should pack for boarding school.  The first list details some of your favourite items we suggest you bring from home and the second list includes items which may be easier for your guardian to buy and have ready for you when you arrive in the UK.
