Fine as a directory but doesn't offer much else
on 16 January 2013
This book sells itself as a fully comprehensive guide to independent education. It does have a directory of independent schools by county, details of entry requirements, scholarships, bursaries etc, all of which is useful. However the more in depth section looking at individual schools simply includes marketing blurb by the schools and doesn't offer any more probing opinions. This section also only includes some schools - many are omitted, which suggests that the schools have to pay to be included.
All in all, it's fine as a shop front for schools, or a directory, but don't expect a more in depth guide.
