Boarding Research Fellowship

The BSA Boarding Research Fellowship, launched by the Boarding Schools’ Association in 2016, gives an experienced senior member of the boarding community the opportunity to undertake a unique research opportunity.

The successful applicant will visit three boarding schools of their choice and will collate their data in a research project analysing the different schools and their boarding provision.

Congratulations to our most recent Research Fellows, Emma Milo, Housemistress and Teacher of Psychology, Haileybury and Simon Porter, Head of Boarding, Clayesmore Prep School, who presented their findings at the BSA / TIOB Annual Boarding Conference on June 6-7, 2023.
