The Good Schools Guide

This year, we were reviewed by The Good Schools’ Guide - the UK’s number one school guide, helping parents in every aspect of choosing the best education for their children. Trusted by parents for 35 years, their guides include impartial and candid school and educational institute reviews as well as in-depth articles on education-related issues. Only a selection of tutor agencies are reviewed, and they follow a thorough process, including surveys and interviews. We are delighted to be featured, and to be received so positively by The Good Schools’ Guide. It truly is a wonderful achievement for everyone at Carfax Education.
