Researching your future school choices at ages 11, 13 or sixth form entry at 16+ can be a very confusing process. Glossy brochures, dinner party banter, family traditions, first time buyer puzzlement or state of the art websites, make it tricky to get to the nitty gritty of what differentiates one senior school from another.

Harrogate and the surrounding area has a plethora of outstanding schools in both the state and independent school sectors. This all goes to make deciding on the right future schools for your children a tricky minefield to navigate.

Through years of experience advising families with planning and making their future school choices, we passionately believe our Future Schools Fair event format will give parents the guidance they need to carry out time-efficient, effective research into all of their school choices, in support of the decision making process.

Free to attend (registration for tickets required), these regional events offer opportunities to meet both state and independent schools from across the region in one place, as well as the chance to attend free advisory seminars delivered by key senior education professionals, on topics which support parents with this decision making process.

Whether you are planning to move from state primary to independent school at age 11, are planning your 13+ senior school choices post Common Entrance, can’t decide if boarding school is for you, or you wish to move to a new school to study IB at sixth form; whatever your objectives in seeking a move of school for your child, attending our Country Life Future Schools Fair in Harrogate will give you answers to many of the questions you have.

Bearing all the above in mind, attending our exclusive, free Country Life Future Schools Fair event in Harrogate offers you:

  • A time saving one stop shop to research regional future school choices, all in one day
  • Opportunities to talk to regional schools face to face about future schools for your child
  • Comparisons between independent schools vs. state school options
  • Exploring your boarding options, flexi, weekly or full-time boarding
  • Free seminars giving advice on many aspects of choosing the right future school
  • Tips on the planning, process and preparation for your future school applications
