Why Join the BSA?
Membership of the Boarding Schools' Association (BSA) entitles schools to a wide range of support and promotion initiatives:
This is the most comprehensive and interactive UK website devoted to Boarding. Coupled with its high prominence on the world wide search engines, member schools are easily found by interested parents and pupils seeking a boarding school.
The unique feature of this website allows users to move automatically from the BSA Members' UK Map to the individual school's web sites or their information pages.
Membership is open to all schools with boarders which are accredited to the Independent Schools' Council, to schools in membership of the Scottish Council of Independent Schools, and also to state maintained boarding schools (which may then also become members of the State Boarding Schools' Association).
