About the event

We are delighted to invite you to the 5th annual Independent Schools Show this Autumn. The longest running and most established exhibition of its type, it is a 'must attend' event for parents considering private education.

The exhibition features over 120 of the UK’s finest independent schools and nurseries including Eton, Marlborough, Harrow and Wellington. It’s an ideal opportunity to gain advice from the country’s most respected senior teachers and expert luminaries – all under one roof against the stunning backdrop of London’s Battersea Park.

The show is also a fantastic chance to gain practical knowledge on funding, bursaries, scholarships and awards.

Tickets registered in advance are completely free of charge so register now for an enjoyable and educational day out for the whole family.  


We know that choosing the right school for your child can be of the most important and complex decisions you need to make for your child’s future. 5 years ago, we launched the Independent School Show to make life easier for busy parents faced with such decisions. We did this by gathering the country's leading schools and expert educationalists in one place.

The 2011 show will be the biggest and best show yet and is now hosted at the fantastic Battersea Evolution Centre in South West London.
