Summary: Overview of international schools in London and outside of London.

There a number of international schools in the Greater London Area that are available to the children of expatriates. Admissions can be a difficult process, especially if you choose to move to London with little advanced notice. The most consistent refrain we read on our United Kingdom Forum is that they are all expensive.
