Baording Concern LogoBoarding School Syndrome

Boarding Concern is committed to challenging the tradition of educating children away from home at boarding school.

The emotional cost to children of adapting to boarding goes largely unquestioned and unacknowledged while the boarding school industry promotes itself by results and achievements.

Our core concern is the psychological and emotional impact on children who spend two-thirds of each year in an institution, living apart from family and home.

We advocate raising children within families. We emphasise particular problems arising from early boarding (under 13) and highlight the effects of surviving at boarding school at every age and stage of development.
