We find and secure exceptional boarding school
placements for military families

More about us

CSF Educational Consultants connects service parents and their children with some of the UK’s best independent schools.

The life of an Armed Forces family is a hectic one. The constant need to follow postings and deployments – often internationally – can make it difficult for military parents to provide their children with a stable and consistent education.

To minimise disruption and ensure every service child can access the opportunities they rightfully deserve, CSF Educational Consultants Ltd works closely with families to help them find a boarding school in the UK that meets their distinct needs.

Whether you’re looking to enroll your child (or children) right now, or you’re exploring options for your family’s future, our highly experienced staff will be able to talk you through your options and help you secure a placement that will suit your unique lifestyle and ensure your children are happy, secure and engaged throughout their school years.

We represent UK independent boarding schools in various locations and we have personally visited and vetted all of these institutions to ensure they meet the high standards we expect from our partners. We have negotiated excellent rates for MOD children between the ages of seven and eighteen to ensure boarding is as affordable as possible for our clients, and we can also help families apply for the Continuity of Education Allowance (CEA), which can help to cover school fees for children aged eight and over.

  • I cannot recommend using Colin’s services enough! Nothing is too much trouble for Colin and his detailed knowledge of what each and every school could offer was invaluable. I’d have been completely lost without him and look forward to tapping into him again when I need to place my daughter too.

  • Thank you so much for your time and words of wisdom informing us of the many options and differences of boarding schools in the UK. Your knowledge and experience of a range of schools helped us enormously and you made us aware of many factors we hadn’t considered. Your guidance has paid off as our children are extremely happy.

  • With Colin's help and support we found the perfect school for our daughter. When we came to see the school, he collected us from the airport and took us to the school. He organised  everything for us including advice on getting CEA. I cannot recommend the service highly enough and several of our friends are now using the service.

  • Colin assisted me greatly in finding a suitable boarding school for my son from start to finish. He guided me through the process, physically attended 3 x different schools we were considering across UK and offered me fantastic unbiased advice drawing from his vast knowledge, skills and experience from working with HM Forces children in Germany.
