Parents who want to keep their children learning are choosing independent schools, recognising that the sector will always deliver a first-class education.

The Independent Schools Show helps thousands of families to plan the next steps for their children.

Our year-round programme of Parents Forum events brings together the leading independent schools, the brightest thinkers and the most respected heads to help you make the right decisions for your child. See below for what's on next.

In the autumn we return to Monaco, Dubai and for the first time will be visiting Abu Dhabi.
