Leadership Parents Forum

Choosing an independent school online

15 October 2020, 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

With school visits more difficult than usual, parents are increasingly turning to the web for information about schools.

This session will give an overview of the best online tools and will then provide a detailed introduction to two of the most comprehensive sources of information - The Good Schools Guide and the Independent Schools Inspectorate.

The GSG and ISI will explain how they form their judgements about independent schools, and then show us how to access and interpret the information they publish.

Dr Guy Schady-Beckett, Head of Research, Bonas MacFarlane
Melanie Sanderson, The Good Schools Guide
Vivien Kelly, Independent Schools Inspectorate
