Many service parents are eligible to claim the Continuity of Education Allowance (CEA), which provides assistance with meeting the boarding fee. Consequently, Service children make up a vital proportion of those boarding, and their needs and special circumstances are well understood within the schools.

The Independent Schools Council’s Annual Census reported that the total number was 4,820 of whom 873 were new pupils, compared with 954 pupils in 2014 and with 879 in 2013. Service children are distributed across about 440 schools, 37 of which are state boarding schools, and they represent about 7% of the total number of children in boarding schools in the UK.

PRODUCTION

The preferred format is high resolution PDF, EPS, TIFF or JPEG to a minimum of 300 dpi. PLEASE ENSURE that all colours and colour pictures are set to CMYK as responsibility cannot be accepted for RGB files. If you can only supply a Microsoft Office file (which includes Word, Publisher and PowerPoint), we require high resolution copies of any pictures, logos etc and pantone references for any colours used, along with a colour proof. Adverts supplied in this format have to be re-set by our artwork department and therefore a fixed fee of £50 will be charged. We cannot be held responsible for any errors, although every care will be taken to avoid them.
