Boarding schools in Europe

Eurydice at NFER has published a new briefing, Boarding schools in Europe: a role in publicly-funded provision?

In a number of European countries there are boarding schools which are publicly managed or which are privately managed and receive public funding for some or all of their students. This briefing looks at some of the characteristics of these schools and the rationales for their existence. Individual countries are cited as examples and publicly-funded boarding provision in three countries, Italy, France and Denmark, is considered in more detail to illustrate different functions and missions.

The text was compiled in December 2013.
