What is the British Boarding School Workshop?

School staff and educational agents have scheduled face-to-face meetings to discuss the recruitment and placement of international pupils. Hosted in a venue near London's Heathrow Airport in March and November, the Workshops have a well-earned reputation for being the most successful way to recruit pupils from a diverse range of countries and in a cost-effective, time-efficient way.

What does the training cover and who is it for?

British Boarding Schools Training courses are run for boarding school staff who are responsible for international marketing and admissions. Topics vary and may include strategy, planning, market intelligence, working with agents and Tier 4. From time to time we run Training Days for educational agents and these are held prior to the Workshop at Heathrow.

What is BBS Connected?

Connected is our exciting web portal which connects British boarding schools and agents beyond our Workshops. Connected provides a detailed search facility for schools to find agents and agents to find schools - search, connect and share information in one central place. Market intelligence, country reports, training videos and expert advice enable school staff to have a well-informed international strategy for successful boarding recruitment.

How to join connected

Schools Annual Membership

Access is via an annual membership for schools and we currently have 170+ member schools.

Only our approved agents, which have been carefully selected and reference-checked, are offered membership and they do not pay for the service. In the same way as the Workshop provides free places for agents, their presence is essential for developing an effective community and we want to make it easy for them to work with British schools in a challenging global environment.

Educational Agents

Membership to Connected is free for agents who meet our selection criteria and can provide three satisfactory references from partner schools, colleges and universities.

All agents are carefully selected and reference-checked before they are accepted to attend the BBS Workshops or before they are given access to Connected. Therefore, please use the form to provide us with as much information as you can to help us assess your application.

Commercial Partners
