Education for Army families

Education for children living in the UK

Most children from military families serving in the UK attend their local civilian school. But in order to ensure continuity of education, some get the opportunity to attend a boarding school.

Education for children overseas

Service Children’s Education is a Ministry of Defence agency dedicated to the education of the children of servicemen and women and Ministry of Defence employees serving overseas.
Its first-class system of schools and educational support services provide an effective and efficient education service, from Foundation through to Sixth Form, enabling service children to benefit from living overseas.
