combining state education with pay for boarding


New funding for State Boarding Schools - see Latest News

State Boarding Schools Association (SBSA) is the national association for state boarding schools within the UK (England & Wales), formerly known as Stabis.

SBSA schools provide high quality boarding at the lowest possible cost. You pay only the cost of boarding as the education at SBSA schools is free.

This is only a fraction of the cost of boarding at an independent school.

Admission to State Boarding Schools in the UK is limited to children who are nationals of the UK and are eligible to hold a full UK passport, or those who are nationals of other European Union countries or those who have the right of residence in the UK. The holding of a BN(O) passport does not make the child eligible for a State Boarding School in the UK.

Most schools are 11-18 schools, though there is one 13-18 school, two which offer Primary Boarding as well as Secondary Boarding and one 11-16 school with a nearby Sixth Form College.

Most schools are mixed, but there are a small number of girls' schools or boys' schools.
