The CEAS is a Tri-Service organisation funded by the MOD. It was established to provide information and support to Service families and eligible MOD civilians on all aspects of the education of their children in the UK and overseas.

Considering a school for your child for the first time or moving between schools, is a very important decision and responsibility. Parents want to be fully informed so that they can decide which school they would prefer their child to attend. All schools welcome enquiries and head teachers will be more than happy to arrange a visit. You are strongly advised to find out about the schools that serve your quartering area and visiting them is highly recommended.
