Tuesday 6 March 2018, 9am -11am

London is the world’s most competitive education system. Nurseries and schools are hugely oversubscribed; waiting lists are long and entrance tests arduous. 

For the first London Parents Forum of 2018, we will be demystifying the various school entry points for parents by offering an overview of the 4, 7, 8 and 11+. Our panel of speakers hope to plot the pathways available and will ensure your child takes advantage of the world-class opportunities available in the capital.

We will be joined by Anita Griggs, Headmistress of Falkner House and chaired by William Petty, Bonas MacFarlane.

The talk will be followed by a Q&A with the speakers, offering parents the chance to have their specific questions answered.

This forum is one of four planned for the Spring Term. The ‘Overview’ is designed to help parents understand which entry point is right for their child. Later in the term, we will have other, more in-depth talks directed at each entry point. These will be run by a panel of leading educationalists to help explain the procedures and best way to approach each stage. 

Tickets to this first talk will come with a discount code for a half-price ticket to one of the talks of your choice later in the term.
