London Choices

London Choices is a NEW and popular feature at the Independent Schools Show.

Designed to help parents focus their school search, London Choices is a talks programme featuring heads and admissions directors from over 25 independent schools across London.

One visitor described the Workshops as “school speed-dating“; others have said “it’s like attending multiple open days in one afternoon.

Certainly it is a uniquely efficient way to get key admissions information. In 15 minute parent briefings find out about:

  • academic requirements
  • entry tests
  • key admission deadlines
  • get answers to your questions

The programme features leading schools from across London such as St Paul’s Girls, KCS Wimbledon, The Lyceum, Queens Gate, Knightsbridge, Latymer Upper, Alleyns, St Paul’s, Eaton Square.

Meet these and the many more London schools that are speaking and exhibiting at this year’s show, next weekend in Battersea (11-12 November).

Experience Boarding

If you think that a London day school won’t suit your child, you might well be considering boarding.

This is a big decision for the whole family, and to help you make it we are introducing this year Experience Boarding, a trail of discovery for your child, while you meet parents of current boarders and house staff from leading prep and senior boarding schools over a coffee.

Each session lasts one hour and will take place at:

  • 11:00, 12:30 & 14:00 on Saturday
  • 12:00 & 13:30 on Sunday.

There is no better way for parents and children to find out more about boarding.

Places for each timeslot are very limited so please book in advance – selecting the ‘Experience Boarding’ ticket.

Tickets are £15. Advance tickets are FREE.
