From the Editor, Emma Lee-Potter

The Week Independent Schools Guide is a lively and informative magazine for readers interested in independent education.

Published twice a year and filled with engaging content and information, the guide features interviews with leading heads and teachers, reports on new ideas and initiatives in our schools and offers guidance on everything from open days and school fees to the importance of STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and maths) and the best ways to revise for exams.

Recent issues have covered the ways in which independent schools are partnering with state schools to share their expertise and facilities, the skills children can learn from drama and performance and the support staff who play a vital role behind the scenes in schools. Don’t miss our exclusive and highly acclaimed Best of the Best guides either.

The Spring/Summer edition of The Week Independent Schools Guide includes our Best of the Best guide to the UK’s top independent prep schools while our Autumn/Winter edition features our Best of the Best guide to the country’s best senior schools.

“Always current and frequently witty, The Week Independent Schools Guide is a perfect digest of current educational issues, a handy update on the sector’s news and required reading for parents.”- Richard Cairns, Head Master, Brighton College

Key stories in recent editions

The best of the best: prep schools

Our highly acclaimed and expertly written national guide to the best independent prep schools

All the world's a stage

The number of pupils taking GCSE drama has fallen in recent years but the school play is still a highlight of the year at most schools. We ask teachers why drama and performance play such an important part in learning. Plus: Why should children study Shakespeare?

School debate

City or country – which is best for your child? The heads of two schools – one in the city, the other in the country share their perspectives on the advantages a location can provide.

Q&A: Explaining the EPQ

More sixth formers are doing the EPQ (Extended Project Qualification) to hone their research skills and give them an edge in gaining a university place. We ask why the EPQ is gaining in popularity and the benefits it brings.
