It includes: / The Sunday Times ranking tables for the top state primary schools, the top preparatory schools, the top state secondary schools and the top independent schools. / More specialized tables based, for example, best GCSE results, best A-level results, best boarding schools, best single-sex schools, best for dyslexic children, highest and lowest fees, best Sixth-form colleges, best schools for added value, best schools for languages, for arts, for technology, etc. / Advice on how to choose, looking both at the state and independent sector, from factors such as geography, examination performance, day or boarding. / Explanation of the application process. / Explanation of educational terms and advice on good websites to visit. / Introduction to the basic structure of secondary schools. The second part contains an alphabetical listing of profiles of around 350 primary/preparatory schools, 650 state and independent secondary schools and 10 sixth form colleges. The profiles for each school will contain contact details, staff and pupil numbers, performance indicators (such as examination performance), entrance details, school policies (on uniform, for example), and a 250-word profile of the school, including comments from Inspection reports.
