The Independent Schools Show (ISS) which takes place at Battersea Park from 14-15 November has today launched a new information hub on its website, www.schoolsshow.co.uk, providing parents with key insights into the issues surrounding education in the build up to this year’s Show.
Now in its ninth year, ISS is established as the country’s leading forum for providing parents with key information on the options around independent education. With over 200 of the top private schools including Eton College, Wycombe Abbey, Winchester College and Wetherby School, the show gives the 4,500 visiting parents a unique opportunity to get all their questions answered under one roof.
Following the successful introduction of the Education Theatre at ISS, which provides talks from leading names within the industry, today’s launch of the advice hub is the latest innovation from the Show’s organisers to ensure parents have the best selection of information at their fingertips.
The hub will provide free weekly expert advice and tips on the pressing issues within education, giving parents the opportunity to understand the choices facing them and prepare the questions they want answered at the Show.
This week’s launch article, ‘How to choose the school that is right for your child’, offers parents specific advice on bursaries, early registration, the options between schools that focus on academic or extra-curricular activities, and thoughts on the debate of single sex versus co-education.
Independent Schools Show Founder David Wellesley Wesley said, “The choices around education are one of the most important decisions facing a parent, and with ever increasing options available, knowing where to start can be a stressful process. Our aim at ISS is to give parents the best range of information and ensure they are armed with all the facts to make the right decision for their children. The launch of our weekly articles is the latest innovation in providing parents with essential assistance.”
Parents wanting to attend this year’s Independent Schools Show can register for FREE tickets at www.schoolsshow.co.uk, which also provides a useful School Finder tool, helping parents shortlist which schools may be relevant for their children based on school type and location.
