Welcome to NappyValleyNet 2016 schools guide.
Last year NappyValleyNet published its very first SW London Schools Guide. We did this in response to the sheer number of questions posted on our website: education was, and still is, one of the most popular topics among our 385,000 visitors.
The reaction was, quite frankly, astonishing, so this year we decided to do it all over again, but even bigger and better.
New for 2016 we look at preschool options, local SEN resources and the forthcoming national exam changes, alongside pages of education advice from leading local schools.
And that’s in addition to a raft of relevant school profiles, interviews with new incoming heads, guidance on the correct amount of homework, how to help your child cope with exam stress and making the most of school open days and tours.
There are also email reminder sign-ups for the most important dates, such as application deadlines and entrance exams.
We hope this guide will help you navigate through your family’s entire education journey and, as always, we would love your feedback on what we can do better next year.
