Our Armed Forces UK Boarding School Service is available to all military families.

We know that finding the RIGHT school for your child can be challenging at the best of times but especially when you are under time pressure or not even in the country. We are currently helping many families through this process designed specifically for military families.

We believe our success is due to us spending a lot of time understanding exactly what our parents want from their child’s school – ALL the schools we deal with are very good schools but not all the schools would be RIGHT necessarily for all students. We then take time to get to know the student as well as we can, again to find out what sort of school would suit them. We use our extensive knowledge of the UK private boarding school market to put together a short list for our families. We support our students and help them with practice papers, interview skills etc. to ensure that they do as well as they can in their assessments. We make all the arrangements for visits and assessment days and if require we can accompany the student and families and “hand hold them” through the process to ensure that the whole assessment/visit experience is a successful one.

We are based in the South West of England but we have knowledge of schools throughout the UK.

As military families ourselves we are particularly interested in helping other families through this process and making the whole experience less stressful and more enjoyable and exciting.


“Amanda assisted us in finding the right boarding school that suited our son. 

For us finding a school that had all of the academic, social, sports and pastoral needs that we as parents wanted for him was a mammoth task. Where to even start!

She conducted research on our behalf and was very informative on many schools knowing what their strong points were. She suggested schools that she felt would suit his and our needs and arranged for us to have tours. 

It certainly took the pain and worry out of trawling through prospectuses and visiting numerous schools.

Amanda was very friendly and helpful. I felt that she had our son’s best interests at heart and genuinely cared that he was placed in a school in which he would thrive and be happy. She went above and beyond anything we expected. Thank you Amanda” – Nancy Goldsmith

We have always been delighted with the services provided by guardians-etc both regarding guardianship and school selection. Queen’s College is extremely proud of its links with the military and the support we receive on an ongoing basis is invaluable – Mrs Jo Chester (International Registrar)
