Nick Duffell, our keynote speaker at this years Conference, started his Boarding School Survivors workshops in 1990.
In that year, of 60 boarding prep schools, how many were still around five years later?
Only 28 were left in 1995…
And since forming Boarding Concern in 2002, 74 independent boarding schools have closed in England.
(Sources: 60/28 comes from a 1995 marketing survey by a now-defunct boarding prep school. The 74 figure from government figures.)
