The UK has the world’s most famous boarding schools, many of which are exhibiting at the Independent Schools Show. The Show is an excellent opportunity to meet the world's leading schools, discuss entrance requirements, fees and bursaries, think about taster days, and consider whether a first class education would be right for your child.

What do independent schools teach? This is not a straightforward question. Independent schools are precisely that, independent and self-managing. Schools determine their own programmes of study and which qualifications and examination boards to use. Just as each school has a different school day and a particular balance between sports and arts, so each school offers a different range of subjects and a different range of qualifications.

Below are 5 tips to help you gather the information you need to make a decision:

Getting your child into a highly selective independent London school, either at 13+ or at sixth form, is a difficult feat. The city has the fastest improving state schools in the UK, but parents still prefer the private sector. Just 35% of parents in London would choose state schools if money were no object (the lowest percentage in the country).
