Last weekend Heather attended the annual Independent Schools Show in London. This event gives parents the opportunity to meet a huge selection of Independent Schools in one convenient location.

It was great to catch up with enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff from schools we already know well as well as meeting representatives from schools we have not worked with before.

We are always interested in what makes a school unique. What is it that sets one school apart from another school when at first glance they may appear similar? We were hugely impressed by the pride representatives have in their schools, the  facilities on offer, the innovations being introduced and the welcome we were given by everyone we spoke to. 

We have looked through the glossy brochures and now look forward to visiting schools which we know less well,  the best way to get a feel for a school is to see it in action! 

Thank you in particular to the staff from New Hall School, Gresham's, Felsted School, The Oratory, Queen Ethelburga's, Godstowe, Old Buckingham Hall, Woodbridge School and The American School in England.
