State boarding schools such as DOYRMS make boarding a far more affordable option. 

Whereas many independent schools can charge around £10,000 per term, we charge just £4,332 (2017/18) per term as you only pay for the boarding fees, your child's education is paid for by the state.  If you are serving and qualify for Continuity of Education Allowance (CEA) you will only pay £1,299.60 per year.
