At King’s Ely, we understand that when students arrive in the UK for the first time, it can be very emotional. For parents, this can be even more so as you pack your loved ones off to another country, a different educational system and entrust their well-being to people you may have never met.

King’s Ely assures you they are in very safe and capable hands. Our boarding staff have decades of experience in making sure that the transition of your child into their new home is comfortable. As well as focusing on their academic development, our house staff will support your child to develop and to discover their talents, making their time with us both enriching and rewarding.

In our integrated houses we are able to give each child, wherever they come from, an inclusive experience, as international students live, work and play alongside our British boarders. On a practical level, we provide everything from laundry to travel arrangements. As a small, safe, historic city, Ely is only a few minutes from Cambridge by train and around an hour from London. As students become more confident in their new environment, staff are ready to help them explore further. Our passionate approach to education in its widest sense will mean your child leaves King’s Ely equipped both academically and socially for the next stage of their global journey.
