Welcome to www.best-schools.co.uk which aims to assist parents in selecting an independent (private) school or sixth form college in the UK. Note that we ONLY advise on private schools – namely schools which charge tuition fees.
Most parents approach us to find the very best school for their child. Thus our website is unique for carrying the only accurate and comprehensive exam league tables of all UK private schools in terms of their A levels, GCSEs, International Baccalaureate, Pre-U and Scottish Higher results, even where they have not been released to the National Press. There are also three exam league tables for boarding schools, split into co-educational, boys only and girls only. We include several league tables for private preparatory schools based on their leaver destinations.
In the “Find a school” section, our database covers all independent boarding schools and day schools in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Of course, school league tables are only one criterion for assessing a private school. Your child may not be suited to a very selective private school with a high pressure academic environment – so please read the FREE eGuide on choosing an independent school in the first section “how to choose a private school”. We also encourage you to use our expert consultancy service to find the right independent school. We always start with a FREE consultation up to 30 minutes after which we will give you our terms for completing a school placement.
Apart from helping you to select the most appropriate private schools for your child, we can guide you through the admissions process and if necessary arrange for a personal tutor to prepare your child for the admissions test. We also advise on choice of curriculum such as A Levels, Pre-U, International Baccalaureate or BTECs. If you have a child with Special Educational Needs, we can direct you to either a specialist SEN school or a conventional school with learning support.
