Here we list the locations of all UK independent or private schools and allow you to search for a school by using an interactive map of the United Kingdom. This site is managed by Education Advisers Limited and you may have found your way here by our link from our other education websites, including www.best-schools.co.uk and www.privateschools.co where the school search functions operate by the name of the school’s town or county. Those sites contain much more information and advice on school choice and therefore you may wish to return to those sites after examining the map locations here.
The UK has approximately 2000 private schools, but this number includes many nursery and kindergartens, whereas we only list proper teaching schools from age 4 and above such that we cover all preparatory schools, senior schools and private sixth form colleges. A private or independent school means that you must pay school fees for your child to attend. We do not cover state (free) schools, for which you should contact your Local Education Authority.
There are many private schools in almost every county of the UK. Preparatory schools and day senior schools are mostly located in larger towns and cities. Boarding schools tend to be located in countryside locations or provincial towns because their campuses often exceed 100 acres in size, which is usually too large for expensive city centre locations. This applies particularly to London, where there are only a handful of boarding schools.
