Are you moving corporate employees around the world?

Or back to the UK?

Finding the right school for an expat family can make or break a global assignment.

An employee relocating to a new country needs the best information on local international schools.  And "best" means information that is up to date, candid, in-depth and accessible.

The Good Schools Guide International is THE trusted authority on overseas schools -- and the only Guide that is completely independent.

Written by parents for parents, the GSGI reviews, differentiates and recommends the top schools for expats in over 50 cities around the world, and expands constantly. The Good Schools Guide reviews over 1,000 top schools in the UK alone. 

School reviews are unsolicited – they’re selected and paid for by the Guide, not the school.  This is the international version of The Good Schools Guide and, like that irreverent 30 year UK best seller, the GSGI makes definite choices and pulls no punches.

The Guide also includes brisk and forthright feature articles on curriculum, special education needs, boarding, transitions between school systems, school proximity to neighborhoods, and expat life generally.

Most importantly, the Guide offers a one-on-one Personal Advisory service.  GSGI editors are in-country and ready to provide advice whenever it's needed - by phone, email or in person.

A corporate account with The Good Schools Guide International or The Good Schools Guide can simplify the school search process and reduce relocation costs for your company.

GSGI information on schools and expat life is first hand, extensive and continually updated.  Delivering it to employees couldn't be easier.  

A GSGI Corporate Subscription  can cost £20 or less per family, providing each of your employee users unlimited access to all GSGI cities and our library of feature articles for a full year.

In a nutshell...

A GSGI or GSG online subscription is the most cost efficient way to give employees the best insights available on international schools for their children.

Assignees can go online, on their own, whenever they need information and reassurance from the Guide.

    Some special needs are easy to spot, others are only determined once a child has experienced considerable difficulties, frustrations or social and emotional problems.  Over the years, diagnosis of and provision for SEN have improved, but both can still be a minefield. Identifying different kinds of special educational needs Few children fit a condition perfectly – if they do, we tend to say they are a ‘classic’ case. Most will not be straightforward: perhaps a dyslexic with dyspraxia and a touch of ADD, or a child with ASD who also has Down’s syndrome. Just as special needs are hard to…

  • Finding a state grammar school

    Counties such as Kent or Buckinghamshire are ‘selective authorities’ and most families will have at least one grammar school close to where they live. Elsewhere, for example in Reading or Kingston-on-Thames, there are just one or two grammar schools and competition for places at these is ferocious. How to find a state grammar school Grammar schools are located in 36 English local authorities. Almost half of these are considered 'selective authorities' (eg Kent and Buckinghamshire), where around one in five local children are selected for grammar school entry based on ability. The others are areas such as Barnet or Kingston,…

  • Schools for children with performing arts talents

    As proud parents, we all know our children are unique. They're smarter than anyone else's, funnier, certainly more attractive, better behaved and above all bursting with the kind of talent that would leave Daniel Radcliffe, Jamie Bell and Charlotte Church standing. And for some extraordinary - though totally understandable - reason, everyone but us seems blind to our offspring's God-given artistic gifts.
