Parent Feedback

“Thanks so much for all your help and advice. I’m a total fan now, without the website I would have felt very lost and insecure navigating the school world.”

"We would have been lost without the Guide. I read quite a lot of the reviews and it was our go-to guide. Also, the reviews of the schools we shortlisted after reading the Guide corresponded to what they were like when we visited them."

More about us

“In 1986 we changed the landscape of how parents choose schools for their children; we launched the first fully independent, honest and unvarnished reviews of schools. A lot has changed since then - many websites now have their own reviews; most of them paid for by the schools themselves - but we remain the trailblazers. We are intrepid, we are honest and we care about providing parents with a true account of what a school is really like. We interview teachers, parents and children to get to the heart of what matters to you. We are The Good Schools Guide.”
