New boarding schools coming to Japan this year
brighton college
Senior School (13-18 years old)
Brighton College is located in Brighton, a calm port town in the south of England, where 80% of the students are full-board students. These days, it is said to be one of the best co-educational schools offering A-levels in the UK. The school buildings are also undergoing renovations, and the modern design of the science building, which resembles that of an IT company, has become a hot topic.
charterhouse school
Senior School (13-18 years old)
A boarding school located in a suburb rich in nature, an hour’s drive from London. Many graduates are active in politics and business. Most students live in dormitories, but the school is unique in that there are many weekly boarding students from the London area. Approximately 20% of students are fully boarded, so they have the advantage of being able to spend quiet time on the weekends. cotsmore school

Reasons for the rapidly increasing number of Japanese students studying at UK boarding schools
The UK Independent Schools Association releases data on private schools. According to the annual report published by the association, as of January 2024, there were 659 single international students from Japan, an increase of 182 from 477 last year. In recent years, there are many schools in the UK where the number of international students from Russia and China is biased. In particular, as a result of accepting many hard-working Asian students to raise the academic level of the school, some schools have ended up with more than half of their students being Chinese.
Due to such concerns, an increasing number of schools are placing importance on the nationality diversity of their students. Among them, there are many boarding schools that are willing to accept Japanese international students who are excellent and have high social skills. Representative Ben Hughes speculates, “Additionally, British boarding schools have been opening one after another in Japan recently, and there is a growing understanding in Japan of the benefits of British education.”
The charm of British education
Another advantage of British education is that it focuses on developing students who are well-rounded, not only academically, but also caring and independent, preparing them for a career at
university. Boarding life is full of extracurricular activities after school and on weekends, such as sports and music activities that are common in Japan, as well as seemingly difficult activities such as horseback riding, sailing, and orchestra, as well as academic Olympics. You can easily engage in this as an activity within your school. This wonderfully well-balanced environment that can be expected to increase children’s curiosity and motivation is the greatest appeal of British education, and is one of the reasons why the number of international students from East Asian countries such as Hong Kong, China, and South Korea is increasing in recent years. It is also said to be one.

Last year’s British Boarding School Fair

Individual consultation at school booth
Seminar by boarding school principal
Last year, despite being held for the first time in Japan, it was a great success with a total of 460 visitors from 200 families. There are wonderful and unique schools in various fields such as academics, sports, and the arts, such as “Rugby School,” which is well-known in Japan, “Sevenokes School,” which is a regular in the IB World Rankings, and “Millfield School,” where current Olympic athletes are enrolled. The school visited Japan and held a seminar on British education and a counseling session for further education.
At each school’s booth, entrance exam representatives and principals eagerly provided individual consultation to visitors, and some participants accepted applications on the spot and underwent assessments (entrance exams) while the representatives were there. Additionally, nine educational seminars were held at the same time. We invited former Harrow School teacher Naomi Matsubara and Cheltenham College Principal Nicola Huggett to speak to us about boarding school life, international curriculum, and more. Every session was sold out, and some sessions had standing room only.
