What this book does very effectively is to extend the general information available to parents, about possible choices of school, to include independent schools. By equipping parents with valuable insights and guidance, hints about how to spot good leadership, the right questions to ask on Open Days and advise about assisted places.
This book is a groundbreaking step-by-step guide to help parents navigate the maze of choices. Supported by articles written by parents, head teachers, and inspectors, issues such as "how to choose a school", single sex or co-ed, state or private, the Prep School system and Common Entrance, bursaries, scholarships and recognising a learning difficulty are covered objectively and sensitively. Children's development, emotional and spiritual well-being are recognised and a whole section is devoted to help parents keep it in perspective!
