SUMMER FAIR HANDBOOK
Dear Summer Fair exhibitor,
The pre-registrations are flying, this demonstrates a renewed appetite for attending informative events and validates the need to help parents address this stage from Year 4 to Year 8.
The information published on this page is designed to help you plan for the Independent Schools Show Summer Fair, if you have any questions please get in contact.
Ben & the ISS team
Talks play a vital role attracting parents to the event. We have a comprehensive line up of speakers in the Education Theatre covering all the topics parents need to know to navigate this stage of their child's education.
Building on the success of the London Choices feature at ISS in Battersea, the 'how to apply theatre' provides parents with an overview of the application processes of London day schools.

Update your listing on the ISS website
Parents use the site to plan their visit and return repeatedly after the show. Views of school listings were up 130.5% in 2019 on 2018, and are rising rapidly again now. A good listing feeds your school's website. 50.4% of our visitors click from the listings to school websites.
Use the form below to submit or update your school's listing on the ISS website - changing text, details, photographs, logo and video.
We are encouraging schools to create a 'we look forward to meeting you at the Summer Fair' video to post on your social media and we will re-share on the website and on our channels. Please be as creative as you wish and share via email/dropbox or tag us.
