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 writers 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.

  • Performing arts schools

    At specialist music, dance or performing arts schools, the arts aren't optional extras. They’re intrinsic to the school curriculum. Students are expected to fit in high level training and hours of practice alongside a full academic provision. It's a lot to ask any child to take on, but for those with exceptional performing ability this kind of education can be transformative.
