Upcoming independent school shows (free tickets!)

27 Aug

The summer holidays are almost over, and with the beginning of the new term, independent schools will be busy marketing for next year’s intake. There will be several excellent independent school shows in different areas of London over the next couple of months that I want to highlight. Those who register online can get free tickets, and this is a great way to screen a large number of potential schools before narrowing down the top five or so that you want to visit and register your child with.

Friday September 16th – Saturday 17th

The season kicks off in just over two weeks with the Archant Good Schools Show in Kensington Olympia W14 8UX. You can get free tickets to the show by registering here. None of the 25 pre-prep schools on londonpreprep currently are among the exhibitors, but there are several very popular Central London schools that are worth checking out, such as GEMS Hampshire in Chelsea and Prospect House School in Putney. The Good Schools Guide will also have a stall at the show.

Friday September 23rd

All the top pre-preps in Hampstead, St. John’s Wood, Belsize Park etc. will be represented at the Independent Schools Show 2011 North London. You will be able to meet representatives from Abercorn School and Hampstead Hill School, among others. The event is held at Lord’s Cricket Ground. Register for free tickets here.

Saturday November 5th – Sunday November 6th

The main Independent Schools Show 2011 is the largest of its kind and will be held in Battersea Park this year. Apart from very popular pre-preps such as Wetherby and Chepstow House, all the top boarding schools including Eton, Fettes College, Cheltenham Ladies’ College etc. will be present. There are free tickets for those who register in advance online.

I am planning to go to the Archant Schools show and the main Independent Schools Show in Battersea and report back on the schools I interacted with here. If you know of any schools show that is missing here, please let me know by leaving a comment below.
