In this webinar we will cover
Understand the Different Schools
Explore a comprehensive overview of various school types, ranging from comprehensive schools and academies to private institutions and grammar schools. Delve into the advantages and disadvantages associated with each choice, including considerations such as school size and the option of single-sex education.
Finding Information about Schools
Learn about how to find the information you really need. We will not only look Ofsted and League Tables (and how to use these effectively) but also information which most people don't know existed - such has how much a school spends on supply teachers each year!
Question and Answer Session
At the end of the webinar there will be lots of time for questions and answers. If you leave a question in the box during sign-up I promise I will answer it either in the webinar or I will contact you directly!
Presented by Joe Pardoe, Founder of School Compass
With over 15 years of experience as an educator, school leader, and education consultant, Joe has developed a wide range of expertise in education. However, it was when he became a father that he recognised a glaring gap in the availability of clear, objective, and easy-to-understand information to help parents to confidently navigate the school system. This realisation inspired him to establish "School Compass," a platform dedicated to bridging this informational gap and giving you the insider wisdom you need to take control of your child's educational journey.

I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop. It was a complete eye-opener on the factors to take into consideration when choosing a school for your child. Joe is a great facilitator. His skills and experiences certainly shone through.
Tracey Coleman, South-East London
We were introduced to Joe when he did a short session at our son’s primary school. Reassuring that he was already known professionally to our school headteachers. We signed up to do some virtual sessions with Joe and thought they were brilliant - gave us the tools to understand the differences and similarities between secondary schools and highlighted interesting educational research that we’d probably have missed. We just felt more confident doing the school tours and filling in our application after that. I wish we’d found him sooner!
Sian Bowman, Hereford
It was kind of like a mix of hypno-birthing and NCT - but for schools! Gave us all of the information we needed, showed us how to control the things we could and how to think differently about the things outside of our control. I left with a sense of what I needed to do next and how to do it.
