The FOOlets are approaching schooling age and I'm taking a periodic view of whether I'll stay in until I succumb to death, disability or disgrace or what's out in scary civvy street. NOt decisve but part of the equation will be the school fees issue. My question is: what does Boarding School Allowance actually get and how much on top should one expect to be paying. Choice would be a prep school somewhere down South. Any thoughts or advice gratefully received.
