The Princess of Wales recently launched Shaping Us – her campaign, aimed at increasing public understanding of the importance of the first five years of a child’s life. The princess says her belief and commitment is to make early childhood development “one of the most strategically important topics of our time.” As children grow and develop, finding the right balance between striving for academic success and simply allowing children to be children can seem overwhelming to a parent. As parents, we guide and support our children in the best way we can and that includes finding the right school. The features within this magazine are written by teachers, many of whom are also parents – their passion, experience, and knowledge are at the forefront of ensuring the young people in their care receive the finest education and pastoral support. From the first day at school through to the last days of sixth form, these schools are here to help give your child the very best start in life.
