Question and Answers

How do I find a private or independent school?

Expert Answer

Making a choice may seem daunting, but it's manageable—if you're prepared to invest the necessary time for your child's future and find the best fit. There are no shortcuts, no one-size-fits-all answer. Each child and each family is unique, so the best approach is to do your own first-hand research. Start with the needs and wishes of your child and your family, then visit websites, talk to parents, gather expert advice and contact schools.

Find everything you need and want to know, including a step-by-step guide, about choosing the right school, a glossary of term, ranking schools and a list of questions to ask.
