Welcome to the Guide
to Independent Schools

This website is based on the well-established book - the Guide to Independent Schools. The premise is that children will flourish in some schools and flop in others, so we aim to help you shortlist schools which will suit your child. Parent Resources explains common terms and what's available (streaming, SHMIS, sex education, scholarships etc). Choosing a school is one of the most important choices you will make - best of luck!
