    I currently study in Italy but i would like to go and do IB in a boarding school in the England. I currently only know three ones which are world famous ones (Seveoaks, Eton and Westminster) but I wanted to have a wider range of options to consider, mabye even including a few hidden gems. My requirements for the school are: it must have an IB programme, the school must be of a good level with high average grades and, most importantly, it must have a rowing team.
    If anyone knows any who fulfill this requirements I would be very grateful if you could share their names with me :P
    Thanks in advance

    Sevenoaks doesn't do boarding, and Eton doesn't do the IB.

    The IB/boarding combo is going to be a hard one to find. Marlborough is the only one I can think of off the top of my head: http://www.tatler.com/guides/schools...orough-college

    Have a look at schools that participate at Henley (specifically the Princess Elizabeth Challenge Cup - see spoiler) and then cross reference it with this:
    http://www.ibo.org/programmes/find-a...ogrammeDP=true
    You can filter the IB list by boarding school.

    Edit: you might find my HRR rowing filter is too high a barrier. There's many schools that offer rowing but didn't qualify for HRR this year - e.g. Wellington College. That's a good one to consider.

    I'm happy that you felt compelled to reply twice to the same post on a month-old thread.

    In any case, you're absolutely right. I apologise for my omission.

    Rowing at Henley or similar isn't being "engaged in waterspouts"...

    Ok, so although I am rower myself (used to row for a club that participates at Henley) I don't know if Sevenoaks has any rowing club at all but I do know that sports and water sports are a huge focus for the school so it could well be the case.

    It was important for the OP

    I can't find any indication of rowing at Sevenoaks. (But could be wrong...)
