The candid reviews, based on what parents, pupils and staff say about the schools and on GSG school visits (open or under cover), are simultaneously revered and feared by schools. No school can pay to be in the guide. The GSG alone decides; schools are in (or out) whether they like it or not. The new regional layout of the guide enables parents to focus on selected regions or individual areas, to find schools for the different ages and stages of a child's life. Parents can also easily identify the outstanding schools for music, art, sport and of course academic results. Read by thousands of parents every year, The Good Schools Guide is a must-have book for any parents looking to choose a school for their child, ages 3-18. Features 306 state and 732 independent schools, all personally visited and scrutinised; Expert advice on how to choose a school, how to secure a place and what to look out for when visiting schoolsshow more

Review quote

It is just as untroubled by the sensibilities of schools - and as cavalier in the face of the squawks from those it has offended." - Times Educational Supplementshow more
