Overseas pupils

We are a British prep school with an international outlook. We value boys from all countries and nationalities.

We value the contribution that every boy makes to school life including our overseas pupils.  We have boys from a number of different countries and nationalities including many ex-pat and UK Forces families.

The assessment process is the same for all boys but we do expect a good level of English from international pupils so that our wonderfully varied curriculum is enjoyed and understood.   Your son will improve his English from the day he starts with us so his time with us will be a developing journey.

The value of joining us at an early age for a boy with English as his second language is huge.  The majority of our overseas pupils will join us in Years 3 and 4 giving them the best chance of improving their English and adapting to the curriculum in preparation for entrance to the best British independent senior schools.


Horris Hill School is a Tier 4 (Child) Sponsor with the UK Visas and Immigration Agency and is happy to sponsor visa applications from non-EU pupils. In accordance with the UKVI guidelines, parents of overseas pupils may be required to pay between one and three terms fees in advance before an online Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) is completed. 


Every overseas boy must have a Guardian in the UK living within reasonable distance of our school.  We want to know that your son will be collected and looked after over Exeat weekends and short breaks.  We want to know that there is someone we can call should he become ill and need to leave school.  We will ask you to complete a 'Responsible Adult Form' before your son starts with us.
