Good Schools Guide

The organisation reviews approximately 1,200 schools. It covers sectors like state and independent schools, mainstream and special schools, boarding and day schools. Strengths and weakness of one school is compared with another. The method of collecting news and views can bring to you good schools that only a neighbourhood knew. This guide will help you decide, as one school that may be good to one child is not to another.
