“As overseas parents, we needed a FULL boarding school. So many schools purport to provide this service but Claire was able to advise us about which schools truly offer the full boarding we were looking for. We were desperate to avoid the dreaded scenario of only 3 pupils being left in the boarding house at weekends!!”
