As some of you may have noticed, we’ve been concentrating a lot on the topic of children’s education on My Baba this month. With that in mind, I wanted to talk about The Independent Schools Show.
The Independent Schools Show is the biggest school’s open day and is an unmissable annual event for parents; one that showcases over 200 schools in England. This year’s event is fast approaching and will be held at Battersea Evolution in Battersea Park on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th November. Check out their website for the full schedule.
The Independent Schools Show is a great platform for parents to meet the big players in the British education system. You’ll be able to get answers to those all-important questions for every age group from nursery all the way up to university. Some of the most prestigious and most respected heads from schools in England will be in attendance, from St Paul’s, Bryanston, Heathfield, Wetherby, Francis Holland along with the legendary Sir Anthony Seldon, Vice-Chancellor University of Buckingham and former Master of Wellington College.
