Hi! Schooling for your children will largely depend on the kind of visa you are entering the UK with. Expat children aged between 5 and 16 years old who are dependents of a person who is legally allowed to live in the country are entitled to the same education rights as British children. Namely, they can attend state primary and secondary schools in the UK free of charge. There are three options for schooling depending on the budget you have. Our guide on schools in London may give you more clarity on which option to go with.
