  •  There will be 100+ British boarding schools taking part at each event, so it is a cost-effective and time-saving way to catch up with many schools in one place.  
  • Scheduled meetings over two days ensure you meet the schools of your choice.
  • Meet new staff, put face to names and update your knowledge about the many schools.
