The Good Schools Guide’s unrivalled reputation for fearless objectivity is more valuable than ever as school websites and prospectuses becomes slicker and glossier.

"the guide regarded as the bible for middle-class school choice" The Guardian

Every year our experienced writers must dig deeper to make a realistic assessment of the school beneath the spin. Our famously forthright and witty reviews give parents all the background information they need and are also a great read.

This year’s special hardback edition contains 1,200 reviews of independent and state schools - from small country preps to inner city primaries; from top state grammars to world famous boarding schools.

Every school we feature is good, but will it be good for your child? Our writers visit each school and interview heads, analyse exam results, check out sports and arts provision, taste the lunches, cost the uniform and check out the bus routes. Most importantly of all, we talk to current pupils and parents.

The Guide’s introduction contains the latest information about admissions policies, free schools, tutor companies, SEN and crucial advice for parents making applications from abroad.

Selling to thousands of families every year, The Good Schools Guide is a must-have book for every parent who wants to find the right school for their child.
