4 South East England
The choice is considerable and whilst underlining the strength of the independent sector (the types and kinds of schools on offer) it can be a challenge to find the one that is exactly right.
Parents may want to start with the route out of London and then think about whether they want full boarding or would like their child home most, if not every, weekend. And then narrow that down again by age group, by academic attainment, by particular sporting or artistic interest. The Show will be a considerable help to finding answers.
