For the sixth time, the Boarding Schools Show is coming to Singapore, providing an excellent opportunity for parents to discover the life-changing educational possibilities offered by international boarding schools in one day and in one place. 

Taking Place at Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore, 22 Orange Grove Road 258350 Singapore. 

We invite you to make important connections and engage in one-on-one conversations with admissions directors, heads of leading boarding schools, and top educational experts from the UK. Additionally, parents can meet with other parents whose children already attend schools in the UK and attend seminars on achieving successful transfers into the UK educational system. The show is the best way to learn about entry requirements, explore scholarships and bursaries, and get answers to specific questions by speaking directly with school representatives.

At the Boarding Schools Show, we understand that selecting the right school for your child can be both emotionally and financially demanding. Therefore, we strive to make the process easier by providing a comprehensive and informative event for parents seeking the best education for their children.

About the Boarding Schools Show

The Show is a unique opportunity for parents to meet the Heads and Admissions Directors of the world's most prestigious boarding schools. Top UK schools as well as education, property and relocation experts will be exhibiting, offering parents the opportunity to plan every aspect of their child’s entry into the world’s most prestigious English language schools. Get first-hand advice on entry requirements and academic scholarships and bursaries proves to be significantly more beneficial, creating initial ties with the relevant people ahead of your application.

Worldwide interest in British curriculum boarding schools continues to grow. There are currently 69,979 boarders in UK schools; 41% are from overseas families. The benefits of boarding at a leading British school are undisputed and importantly recognised by both university admissions teams and employers.

The Independent Schools Show started 15 years ago in London and has since expanded to include 12 key markets overseas.

The very best British curriculum schools

For each Boarding Schools Show we carefully refine the list of attending schools to ensure parents are put in front of the very best of British private education. The alumni these schools produce include business leaders, politicians, academics and athletes. These schools produce, high-achieving, well informed and confident alumni, who make excellent candidates for top UK and US universities.

Supporting the exhibiting schools will be top educational consultants who will be available throughout the show, offering advice and guidance on finding the very best education for your child. Leading this will be William Petty, Director at Bonas MacFarlane, London’s leading educational consultancy. William has been featured in publications including The Times, The Economist and Tatler, and has appeared in BBC Radio 4’s Today programme.
