Parents who choose independent schools recognise that the sector will always deliver a first-class education.

The Independent Schools Show in the UK and the overseas programme of British Boarding Schools Shows helps thousands of families to plan the next steps for their children.

This autumn the British Boarding Schools Show returns to Monaco, Istanbul, Mumbai and New Delhi.

The climax of our year is the Independent Schools Show in Battersea in November, after which the British Boarding Schools Show will be visiting Dubai and Abu Dhabi, followed by five shows in South East Asia.
