Have you ever wondered how to find the right school for your child? If you have you have probably heard of School Reviewer?
It is a brilliant website (and so much more than a school review site.) It is packed with resources and features for parents who really care about their children’s education.
Let me show you around…
This is a fabulous place for parents to share worries or concerns, ask questions and explore topics with other parents. So nice not to feel alone and so important to have a place to talk about the important stuff!
Knowing what the catchment area is for each school is essential and being able to find this out quickly and efficiently is a really useful facility. It can determine many choices you make as parents, not least a house move!
On School Reviewer you are able to access and contribute first hand reviews of educational establishments. Such a good idea as of course every school advertises itself positively but what we all want to know is what it is really like.
There are 41,826 establishments on record within the School Reviewer database and they have detailed profiles, academic data and OFSTED reports for most of these. How useful is that if you are trying to find the right school.
There is also a fabulous educational blog on this website that I absolutely love. It has such good advice. I have just been reading about back to school tips where they suggest ways to ward off the morning panic that September inevitably bring (oh thank goodness.)
They also look at why planning, preparing and practising can make all the difference. It’s a very useful post!
Also on the blog are some brilliant guides for parents in regard to their children and the various social media sites, profile of the education minister, encouraging children in sport and a wealth of other articles.
At School Reviewer you also have the facility to search for tutors by the area you live in and subject speciality which is really handy. Tutors are allowed to update their details for free so you really will get a full view of who is available.
Buy and Sell
There is also buy and sell section for books, uniform and sports equipment where you can view or create listings, under each separate educational establishment. How useful is that! – it could save you a small fortune! Kids grow so quickly don’t they and buying new uniform each time they do grow really can be expensive Being able to sell their outgrown blazers maths books and footie boots is sure to help too.
Video guides to perfect exam results
Exclusive to School Reviewer and a rather amazing resource for students and parents alike are these Maths GCSE, SATs and 11+ exam video walk throughs. They give…
clear and easy to follow solutions to show you how to achieve that perfect 100% score, with top tips and the common errors to avoid

So all in all what a fabulous resource School Reviewer is …a one stop shop for all the educational support you could need, just so useful.
