Brought to you by School Notices 2019 Kindly supported by Trusted • Connected • Noticed In association with INSIDE SCOOP Welcome to the Inside Scoop We are delighted to bring you a brand new perspective on schools from the people who know them best! Written by current parents, these reviews are designed as the name suggests, to give you the Inside Scoop, helping you to make informed decisions on prospective schools. School reviews can often be rather one dimensional and as parents, it is that extra inside information from another family that can make all the difference. We invite you to learn about the things that matter most to current parents at these schools and importantly, the things their children love too. School Notices was set up to create a trusted network of parents and alumni in the independent school community. With thousands of subscribed members, we are the UK’s largest online independent school marketplace and source of latest educational news. From holiday homes to outgrown violins, our online noticeboard is unparalleled and our family lifestyle magazine Noticed, now combining the Inside Scoop, has helped to inspire the next generation. We are incredibly proud to be spreading the word about the top schools in the UK, which can now be found throughout our exciting new guide. We hope you enjoy this first edition!
