The 2014/15 edition of Which School? for Special Needs has now been published, and we’re pleased to introduce an excellent collection of articles, school profiles, directory details and essential information for all those involved in the special educational needs sector.

The 23rd edition of this long-standing guidebook contains a comprehensive directory of independent and non-maintained schools and colleges in the UK that provide services for children and young adults with sensory or physical impairment; learning difficulties; social, emotional and behavioural difficulties; and autistic spectrum disorders.

It features full and double-page profiles of leading special schools and useful information on groups, associations and charities serving the special needs sector. The book also includes a directory of maintained special needs schools.

We also aim to highlight the latest news and initiatives from the sector in the editorial section and I am particularly pleased with the high quality of editorial this year.

We asked Claire Dorer, chief executive of the National Association of Independent Schools and Non-maintained Special Schools, to write the foreword again after her insight piece in the 2013/14 edition; she provides an update on Government reforms of SEN legislation. Douglas Silas, of Douglas Silas Solicitors, contributed a fantastic piece which also focuses on SEN reforms and asks the question: “So what now?”

We are also pleased to include articles from Hesley Group, Options Group, the RNIB, Ruskin Mill Trust, The Percy Hedley Foundation, I CAN charity, and Riverston School in London. I will be placing selected editorial online at www.specialneedsguide.co.uk, where you will also find updated school profiles and a searchable directory.

To order a copy of the guide, please visit our bookshop. To see the eBook, click here.

For any further enquiries about the guide, email us.

We are very pleased to announce the publication of the 2014/15 edition of Which London School? and the South-East.

It is the 25th edition of this guidebook, which provides information on more than 1,500 schools in the Greater London and surrounding area.

We have given the guide a fresh look this year, in line with our stable of guidebooks, and this means we are able to display the copy and images of profiling schools better than ever before.

Copies of the book will soon be arriving with schools, as well as distributed to key reference points – including educational libraries, HR departments and embassies – for families as they search for the right school for their children.

What is particularly pleasing this year is the excellent editorial on offer in this edition. I was delighted to receive excellent pieces from Neil Chippington at St Paul’s Cathedral School; Louise Simpson at Bromley High School; Mark Steed at Berkhamsted School; Jo Glen at Dolphin School; Stella Ottewill at the St Michael Steiner School; Simon Smith at Haileybury; and Simon Hitchings, of Swanbourne House School.

I will be placing many of these articles online in the next few weeks, and they are well worth a read, sharing the benefit of vast experience and raising topics that will interest anyone connected to independent schools.

If you would like to order a copy of Which London School? & the South-East, please visit our bookshop. For any other enquiries about this guide or any other of our publications, please email us at enquiries@johncatt.com.

2014 edition marks start of new era for Which School? directory November 5, 2013

Which School

The 2014 edition of Which School? has now been published.

This prestigious directory of independent schools is in its 89th edition but boasts a fresh new look for 2014. It is now in A4 landscape format with a hardback cover.

We also believe the new look gives a fantastic platform for schools to promote themselves to prospective parents, with the opportunity for a full page A4 photograph. We have been thrilled at some of the stunning pictures provided, from busy and vibrant classrooms to picturesque school settings.

Which School pic

Which School? has been helping families make the right choices for their children’s education since 1924. The current edition includes details of more than 1,800 UK independent schools.

As well as the printed book, it is supported by a fantastic eBook and the www.which-school.co.uk website.

To mark the start of this new era for Which School? we have sent a complimentary copy to selected schools, as well as to a distribution network that includes educational libraries, British embassies, consulates and high commissions, foreign embassies in the UK, British Forces’ libraries, educational departments, overseas agents, relocation agencies and the HR departments of top British companies.

In the picture above right, editor Jon Barnes and copy clerk Ian Morphew look at the end product of many months’ hard work leading up to publication of the book. We’d like to thank all the schools we’ve worked with this year.

If you would like to order a copy of Which School? please visit our bookshop.

If you are a school and would like to talk to us about possible inclusion in the 2015 edition or any of our other guidebooks, or for any other enquiries please call 01394 389850 or email enquiries@johncatt.com.

Likewise, if you are a school who has not received your complimentary copy, please get in touch.
