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.

The climax of our year is the show in Battersea

Independent Schools Show, the world's largest school open day

Today we launch the London Independent Schools Show 2021 Talks Programme.

The November 2021 programme is the Schools Show reinvented. Our focus this year is interactivity. 

With three NEW spaces alongside our well-established keynote theatre, we have more speakers, more talks, more opportunities to get answers to your questions. 

FREE for parents to attend, the 2021 Schools Show Talks Programme is going to be a unique festival of ideas and support for parents.

This year we introduce three NEW highly interactive spaces 

  • ISC Leadership Theatre
  • Good Schools Guide Forum

PLUS our keynote Scholato theatre at the front of the hall celebrates 15 years with a NEW format, and as ever there are two great cafés.
