NetmumsWe’re delighted to announce that The Good Schools Guide has teamed up with the UK’s biggest parenting website, Netmums, to help parents find out everything they ever wanted to know about UK schools. Netmums’ new look school search will be powered by The Good Schools Guide’s comprehensive database, providing parents with the latest available information on all UK schools and summaries of all the Guide’s reviews.

The Good Schools Guide was founded over 30 years ago and is famous for its witty and forthright reviews of over 1,000 state and private schools. Our reviews are still written by parents, for parents, and contain not just the need-to-know facts, figures and latest academic results, but also the kind of priceless behind the scenes information that doesn’t feature on school websites and marketing material.

Ralph Lucas, Editor in Chief of The Good Schools Guide said, ‘Our values dovetail with those of Netmums – one of their founding principles is to “Make sure every parent has access to all of the local support and advice available - from other mums and from professionals” We too rely on our network of local parents, writers and education professionals to tell us what’s going on in the schools they know.'

Netmums Managing Director, Rimi Atwal, said, “Education and schooling are evergreen topics on Netmums forums and parents consistently want the latest insights and information to enable them to make the right choices for their children. Our collaboration with The Good Schools Guide will provide users with the latest facts and honest reviews about schools in their local area and we are confident our new guide will help thousands of our users and their families to make the most informed decisions.”
